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.

I’ve been preparing my works for my exhibition, opening Friday night, 18th October. The A4 prints I’ve done are on Canson BFK Rives paper, and mostly printed in cooler tones. / The printer is a Canon pigment IXUS 7000, and the results allowed the gallery curator to choose which images to display. / Since the A4 prints are fine quality, I’ve decided to offer them as artist’…
