Dylan Melcher has a background in Cultural Studies and Fine Art, having earned a degree in Mandarin Chinese and taking several Fine Art Photography courses at Florida State University. He worked his way through college photographing the club scene at FSU before graduating in 2007 ready for the next adventure. Dylan spent his first few years out of college exploring and working in NYC and Northern China before working 7 years in advertising as a Director of Photography in Tampa, FL.  Now, with more than 13 years of experience, Dylan is continuing his passion of filmmaking and photography with a focus on travel, adventure, conservation and the outdoors. 

He’s both artist and journalist, and his work never fails to captivate.
— Phillip Ward, Deputy Editor, VISIT FLORIDA.


In the Summer of 2016, Dylan set out on a 9,500 mile road trip that spanned the entire U.S. to film short vignettes about the experience of travel and meeting new people- you can find the series by searching "Dirt Road Narratives" on Vimeo. His directorial debut, "Crosby Rail", won an award for best filmmaking from Indie Film Festival and is a docu-drama about his grandparents and their love story.

Dylan is excited about the future of filmmaking and photography. The tools are no doubt getting more affordable and accessible to everyday filmmakers. But, the beauty of storytelling is what most excites him. There are stories all around us. And he believes if we can bring a passion to a story, then people can learn and get inspired by what they see and watch.
