Hi, thanks for checking out my work! My name is Rhamel, but i go by Mel. I'm a graphic designer as well as a photographer. I've previously shot for H Texas Magazine as well as The Houston Bridal Extravaganza Show.
After a brief hiatus I'm back to shooting non-stop. I strongly believe that there is no end to learning the art of photography and there is always something new I can learn whether it be from trying something new or just trying something outside of the proverbial box, I believe that together we can all learn something new and create insanely badass images.
I try to create the best images I can by composing the image around the subject, not by molding the subject to the composition. I consider my style to be a projection of my personality which is pretty easy-going. I try to have fun during my shoots, usually jammin out to music and laughing, but keeping the shoot on track at the same time. My main philosophy is that if the model is uncomfortable then it will show up on the end pic, so I try to keep the shoot entertaining and the subjects as comfortable as possible.
I mostly shoot Fashion: High Fashion and Editorial, Glamour, Portraits, Sports Photography and Fitness, but I am always looking to branch out. My current infatuation is Fine Art with a twist of photographic commercialism.
