Brands and people I love working with

Mels energy, professionalism, and passion has been absolutely exceptional and I knew from the moment I meet her I wanted to work with her. If you really want to establish yourself.... and show people the lane you are owning then do a professional showreel with Mel, it's truly an amazing experience.
Alice Crawley – Speaker, Author

Kind words from my clients:

  • I have used Melinda on many occasions for portraits of my team and me. Her photos are exceptional and the process is always easy and enjoyable. I also use Mel for video work often. She is fast and professional. In the last couple of years I have recommended Mel to hundreds of speaker’s because her work is that good. She understands our business and what the client is looking for. Her gentle guidance and positive encouragement makes all the difference to the final product. I highly recommend Mel for anyone looking for a professional shoot.

    Leanne Christie - Ode Management, Ovations, Standing Ovations
  • Melinda Hird is the best in the business when it comes to video and branding portraits. There are a number of operators in the speaker world but I really think Melinda loves her clients genuinely and produces outstanding work. I love my branding shots and my showreel creates business for me every day.

    Lucy Bloom
  • I engaged Mel recently to do my personal branding photography and showreel video and cannot recommend her highly enough! I'm so pleased with the photos and video, but the reason I recommend her goes beyond the final product. It's the service. Mel totally invests herself in getting to know you, your story and what you want the photos/video to portray, provides great guidance and then she 100% delivers!
