Hello there, my name is Tammy Mellert and I am a Macro and Nature photographer living in Northeast Ohio.
I grew up in a small farming - industrial town in Indiana where I learned the love of photography from my dad. At the age of 15, my dad purchased a Canon AE-1 for me and started teaching me how to see the world through the lens.
After graduating high school, I moved to Michigan where I met my husband. I continued to take photographs and learn my skill after we moved to Cleveland, OH a few years later. I spent the next several years as a portrait, wedding and modeling photographer but my love for nature, particularly macro/close-up photography, is where my true passion is.
Living on the North coast of Lake Erie and spending time in the woodlands here at the tip of the Appalachian mountain range gives me plenty of photographic opportunities year round. I love being in nature and capturing all the big and little landscapes it has to offer.
Thank you for visiting my page and sharing in my love of photography.
