I’m Mel. Photography for me started at an early age. I remember my first camera being one of those disposable cardboard ones you get at the checkout at Coles. I guess my Mum had no choice but to finally buy me one. After all, I was always messing around with the family camera and I don’t think Mum would have forgiven herself If I accidentally re-configured the whole thing. When I was about fourteen I was then granted permission to use the ‘family camera’ under supervision, and pretty soon I knew that thing inside and out. Better than the folks did I think. I have fond memories from our family trips around WA. I would have Dad stop the car regularly in order to capture the sun-kissed landscape the way I saw it at that very moment. In 2006 I trained at Central Tafe and finally photography became my profession and not just a passion. Specialising in people and portraits, I take a natural yet artistic approach to my work. I’m always looking for innovative techniques and unique ideas to ensure my clients are comfortable, having a memorable experience and every photo session reflects the subject accurately. As a result, memorable images are produced. I believe that photography is about the essence of the moment – not simply the technical aspects. My objective is for the viewer to feel the emotion, attitude and the character residing in my subjects.
