My name is Melanie Mae Bryan and I'm a fine art portrait photographer located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Originally from Wheeling, WV, I became interested in art and photography at a very young age, and have been practicing it for as long as I can remember. I began working with models in 2013 and doing self-portraits shortly thereafter. I even did work for clients along the way. The journey to fine art work has been a long and confusing one, but I'm happy to say that I'm at a point where I love what I'm doing and I'm so excited to see what the future holds for me.
I love conveying emotion through photography, storytelling and finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. My other passions include turtle conservation, cats, singing, web design and video games. My ultimate dream is to move closer to the ocean to help with sea turtle conservation, along with continuing to make magic through photography. If you’d like to know more, model for me or ask any other questions, send me an email.
