About Me


Greetings and welcome to my site. I am a photo stylist in Cleveland, Ohio where I work as a food, prop,  and set stylist. 

My work has grown out of my studies as a sculptor and fiber artist in college which I worked my way through in a variety of restaurant kitchens. I married a wonderful still life photographer, Len Mastri and we worked together for many years before his retirement. I also worked in the Test Kitchen at Eating Well Magazine and as a chef at Chapter's Bookstore and Cafe before heading out as a freelancer. Currently I am a contributor to Edible Cleveland Magazine, crafting the In Season and Technique pages with friends in the industry.

Cleveland has proved to be an exciting city in which to be based. It is filled with talented folks and wonderful clients. I have been very fortunate to be able to work in different aspects of styling.

Please call with any questions: 216.287.8862 or email me at melissa@lmphoto.com.
