MOTHER’S DAY: MAY 11th — Save 10% off anything on Redbubble today only with the code MD5431

Welcome to my bubble home. I’m Mel Brackstone EFIAP FAPS, mother of two, wife of one, and I took up photography in 2004 to help satisfy my need to be creative in new ways. I’m self-taught, and after joining a few camera clubs and entering competitions, particularly on line, I managed to find my way here to redbubble in 2007.

When I joined, I was mostly shooting landscapes and seascapes, however now I’ve branched out into portraits and nudes, which are shot in my studio, or on location, all over the country and overseas!

My halftone portfolio includes many more.
