About Melissa Lipton

I'm an award-winning fine art photographer living in the Vail Valley in central Colorado.


My passion is spending time in nature, and capturing the beauty around me for everyone to enjoy.  As you can see from my galleries, I enjoy all types of photography, but most of all, I enjoy capturing memories of the outdoors and teaching others.

After over 2 decades as a medical doctor and radiologist, I decided to bring my new career out of the dark room and into the light!  I now am a full time photographer, and I am constantly seeking out new places to explore.  And I love photographing people as they enjoy the outdoors with me.

Studies show that nature has healing properties, and my dream is to continue to heal others by bringing scenic beauty inside every home and workplace, hospital and hotel, restaurant and mall. 

Whether you want to decorate your home or brighten your work space with the beauty of nature, or if you'd like to learn how to capture your own great images, I can help.

In my photography workshops, I lead other photographers out to my favorite places in nature and help them learn to capture photos they will treasure for a lifetime.

I'd love to talk with you about finding the perfect images for your space, or photographing your precious time outdoors with family, friends, pets, and loved ones.  I also will travel to capture your special event or location.

Contact me to choose or create the perfect photography workshop for your interest and skill level.  If there is a particular place you want to photograph, I can set up a custom photo tour just for you and your friends.


Let's fill your world with beauty!
