Meet the Instructor Brett Mello:
Whether being stared down by bears in the wilds of Southeast Alaska or tossing about the Caribbean on a 92-year-old tall ship, I have always found comfort and creativity bringing experiences to life with whatever tools I have available. I have a bachelors degree in marine biology. However, I am driven by my lifelong passion in photography and am self taught. I have both worked with and learned from many brilliant photographers over the years and that reflects in my diverse skill set. With this in-depth workshop, allow me the opportunity to unlock the secrets and potential lying in your equipment, creativity, and sense of wonder.
