G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I contribute to a few charities as a Photojournalist, namely HEAL Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Any of my Africa stuff’s profits go to them. So far the sales have bought 7 operations and heaps more so thanks for everyone’s support. I also take a mean beach shot (well try to).


I have launched an online photography learning site called Photography Campus
It’s where pros teach the rest of us all about photography and post production. Hopefully it will earn me enough money to get back to Congo.

If you like Aussie accents it’s the place to be :)
