About Mel

Photographer - Mel Birt

Melanie Birt

Principal Photographer / Owner

A keen observer Melanie has always been interested in people and culture, the way we relate to each other, and universal concepts of love, family and other traditions. It may come as no surprise that she majored in Anthropology at the Australian National University back in the day. Through photography Melanie has long been able to disappear behind the lens and quietly document her observations, an attribute that has led her on this path to full time photography.
