I am Melany Ruiz, and I’m a 20-year-old creative director and photographer from Brampton, Canada. 30 minutes west of Toronto.
I run a multi-media business called Melevision. I mostly focus on business branding and fashion photography. For as long as I could remember, I’ve always been fascinated by the media industry. My uncle introduced me to my first DSLR when I was around 9 years old, and the rest was just history. I created Melevision during my year off after I graduated high school in 2018.
That was also one of the hardest years of my life, but when I sit back and reflect on my past, Melevision is something that stands out so profoundly. I am so proud of what I was able to create because I wanted people to see what I saw through my lens and help individuals build their confidence- that when I give them the final file, they can look at the digitals and be like, “wow I look so good”.
As the years go on in my life and my time in this industry, I only hope to meet more beautiful and talented people. I hope to expand my knowledge. I hope to only get better.
