Biography

About Melañio Gomez


Thank you for taking a look at my portfolio, which showcases a number of photographic images that I've produced for both editorial & commercial clients.​ ​Various experiences have led me to this point in my career​.​

After graduating from art school  I joined a packaging design firm in New York City working on commercial projects. ​From there I began working as a graphic designer,​ at another firm​. It was ​here​ ​I ​began styling photo shoots, mainly due to lack of budget to hire a professional stylist.

I moved over to a studio ​that specialized in catalogs for high end retail centers​, here​ I gained most of my early photo shoot experience​ where I art directed catalogs and styled photo shoots.

During this period I ​began​ freelance​ing​ ​primarily working with Estee Lauder​.​ I created displays and special event graphics.  On occasion I took projects with Tiffany and Co. as an illustrator designing trophies.

I began working as a freelance art director for a private label producer of fashion underwear.  I designed packaging, styled photo shoots as well as video, working with models for clients such as Ralph Lauren, The Limited, ​& ​The Gap​.​

While working in my early career in New York City two art school friends and I started a multi-disciplinary design firm called Top Spin.  We eventually made the leap, and went into business full time.  Top Spin produced a wide range of projects including industrial, graphic, product, interior design, as well as corporate identity.  Our clients included Barn​ey​s, Bloomingdales, Crate and Barrel, Bed Bath and Beyond, ​Saks 5th Avenue, ​S​FMOMA, The Met, Saks 5th Avenue, and ​the MTA​.

After several years in business the career objectives of my Top Spin partners and I each took different directions and we ended the business.  I began a series of new projects:  I freelanced for David Beam, Phillip Baloun and Preston Bailey as an events florist, and my partner and I purchased and renovated five homes. Years before I helped my mom renovate her Philadelphia townhouse which proved to be excellent training for the years of renovation projects in my life.​

​I took a position at with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, ​ first as a style editor ​& ultimately ​became the​Editorial Director of Home…​ producing co​ntent, products, photoshoots, and radio programs. After 7 years my partner & I decided to relocate to europe & settled in Brussels, Belgium.

At that point I began freelancing once again, traveling back & forth working on editorial and commercial shoots both in the US & Europe. I currently work locally in San Francisco & New York.

Thanks for your interest & for viewing my work.
