Hello! This is Melliza Zhuang or Mels for short. She achieved this nickname when she got a princess pink Nintendo DS Lite in first grade and she was too lazy to tap out her full name. She currently attends Chapman University's film program in Orange, CA and she hopes to become an amazing film editor in the future. She enjoys spraying siracha sauce on her food, forcing friends to model for her pictures and sitting by running water after long hikes. She enjoys listening to artists such as One OK Rock, Panic! At The Disco, Lady Gaga, Oral Cigarettes, Fall Out Boy and movie soundtracks (Pirates of the Caribbean is always a classic and the Spirit soundtrack is great for road-trips). She is excited to join the Mystic Music Magazine family!
I'm Amanda Spring from Richmond, RI. I started taking photos in fourth grade and from there my passion grew. Around 2005 I developed a love for music and always wanted to be part of a band. The closest way of accomplishing that for me, was to become a band photographer! I have been taking band photos professionally under the RIP Photography moniker since 2012, and have been continually growing my business and expanding my portfolio ever since.
