Melissa Brookmire, raised in Rochester, New York, has lived in Portland, Maine for the past three years with her husband and her kooky black lab, Molly. Nature photography has become a passion for her. This is her story.
My parents raised my brother and I to love the outdoors and nature. My father introduced me to photography when I was a teen. I played around with it for a while, but then lost interest until I moved to the Pacific Northwest a little over ten years ago; I have been addicted ever since. Nature photography has become a passion for me.
