Melissa Rump, Photographer

While senior and photographer Melissa Rump may be new to the journalism world, her passion for photography has been evident for a while. Starting with the purchase of her iPod when she was in seventh grade, Rump developed an interest in the world of editing and photos. During her sophomore year, her father purchased a Canon Revel T5 for her which really helped her skills improve.

Since then, Rump has accomplished quite a bit in the world of photography. She established her own business, Meli Imagery, and shoots portraits and landscape photos. Her favorite photo is a shot of the Centennial Bridge at sunset, which is currently framed and hanging at Davenport City Hall outside of the mayor’s office.

Rump credits her photography passion to her best friend and father. They share a love for photography and editing, which has created and very close bond between the two.
