Mel Hammonds is a photographer specializing in natural light photography of pets and landscapes. “While I haven’t always made a living as a photographer, I feel that I have always lived as one after getting my first camera at the age of 8.” Her fine art pet photography niche, known as “Fetching Images,” is designed to capture the unique and special characteristics of the animals we love and present the outcome in fine art products that will be around for years of enjoyment. Additionally, her love of nature and travel has inspired a large body of work consisting of landscapes, cityscapes, and abstracts. Most recently Mel has begun expanding her medium to include Encaustics and mixed media, adding additional elements of interest to each photo incorporated into this process.
Mel is an AGGG member and her artwork can be viewed for the month of September on our Featured Artist Wall directly at the front of the gallery. Join us for an artists reception on First Friday, September 1st from 6-8pm where you can meet Mel and see her work.
