Work

When I’m not outside rambling across the hills, I may be inside at my desk planning an adventure, writing about trips, editing photos or working on the projects I founded and run on a daily basis.

I am excited by the prospect of working with people and brands I am passionate about, through writing, photography and content creation for social media channels, websites and blogs. I believe my genuine passion for the outdoors, travel, lifestyle and nature is portrayed through the content I produce, and I share this in an authentic and meaningful way with a loyal social media following.

If you are interested in working with me in any way, send me a message to athenajmellor@hotmail.comI love to share creative ideas and create content to inspire others.

Writing

Writing has been a passion since as long as I can remember. My preferred style of writing is personal and meaningful, inspirational and profound. I let my words carry me forward, and with them hope to inspire people in some way.

Let me write for you! I can create content for you brand's website, write blog posts, do gear reviews, design walking and city guides, write inspirational articles and editorial features - all accompanied by high-quality photography. Some examples of my writing can be found below. If you're interested in working with me, please get in touch!

For longer features, I often work with my sister, Annapurna Mellor, who is a professional photographer to create the best-quality content through both words and images. See an example of our work together here.

Content Creation & Social Media

I love working with brands, websites, social media channels and blogs, creating unique and inspiring content through photography and writing. My genuine passion and enthusiasm for the outdoors, nature, lifestyle and travel is portrayed through the content I create, and I have considerable experience both managing and creating content for social media accounts. When appropriate, I can also share content on the social media accounts I manage, collectively reaching 10k+ followers (ROAM Magazine, Ramble Guides and my personal account).

I often work with my sister, Annapurna Mellor, who is a professional photographer, on creating content for brands.

Ramble Guides

Ramble is a website dedicated to outdoor travel guides to the UK’s National Park and wild spaces, designed for the modern explorer. I founded Ramble in April 2017, an idea that had been brewing in my mind based on something I felt was missing from the market. Ramble is designed to facilitate the process of going to visit a new outdoor space, with a carefully curated list of locations for each guide and the key information required to get there and begin the exploration. As the outdoor-adventure industry continues to grow in the UK – especially amongst millennials – I hope to expand and develop Ramble to encourage people to get outside and explore.


ROAM Magazine

ROAM Magazine is an online travel magazine I founded with my sister, Annapurna Mellor, in September 2016. ROAM is a collaboratory platform; a space for writers, photographers and other creatives to showcase their work. ROAM aims to inspire readers to travel, capture and create through photography and writing. We believe in travelling with a purpose, with inspirational ‘off the beaten track’ content that has attracted a solid following. As well as curating the website, I also run the social media accounts, write and photograph regularly for the magazine. In less than a year, the magazine has had over 100,000 views and has built a social media following of over 3,000 people.
