Hi, if you’re looking for my work, make sure you look UNDER the images, the products and collections are there. Feel free to ignore the links on top of my shots.

Meanwhile, 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.

Likewise I often don’t see browsing arrows when I go to the artist’s second latest upload, however I can see their third latest with arrows. / Just looking to see if there are other sufferers… / Firefox seems to be the problem, because I can se…
