I’m Melvin, a 45-year-old full-time professional landscape photographer who is based in Preston, Lancashire. I run landscape photography workshops in the UK and in Iceland ranging from one day to eight. I also offer personalised 1-2-1 tuition days for those who prefer to receive assistance on their own. I obtained my Licentiateship distinction with the Royal Photographic Society in 2012. I have had my work published in national and international magazines and I have my work permanently exhibited in various establishments in the Lake District and Scotland however it is the teaching and assisting side of photography that I love. The desire to help others to realise their dreams and aspirations in not only improving their photography but to gain more enjoyment from it as a result is the very thing that has me enjoy what I do so much.
I was a national judge for two years recently with the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union.
