Melissa Trotter is a horror and dark themed photographer from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and is the owner of Stolen Innocence Photography.  She began working in film as a screenwriter and composer and randomly picked up photography in as a way to generate funds to make more films.  Bouncing quickly from landscape to lifestyle, she then found her passion and home in alternative, dark beauty, surrealism, and horror and began to concentrate solely on her photography projects.  Her work typically consists of concepts featuring a juxtaposition of innocent subjects in sinister settings and for this reason, children are featured quite heavily.  As a self-taught artist, she is constantly learning and honing her craft.  A finalist in the 2017 Fear Awards as Horror Photographer of the Year, her pieces, most notably "Blood Dress," "Slender Man" and her Stephen King's It-inspired series, have garnered millions of views, have been published in several magazines, and are featured in private collections worldwide.  Currently, she is working on several large projects including an ongoing collaboration with Rutherford Manor and a book with abandoned places photographer Freaktography in addition to continuing to create her own unique concepts.
