As a visual artist, I seek quiet moments of solitude & self-reflection with the intention of opening a discussion about the the finer details of life.

🇨🇦 Regardless of one’s speed, one must always remember to keep moving forward ~ just like a new hatched baby turtle who’s crawling to the ocean for the very first time. #kevinjmellis @canada #canada photo credit ~ @davidalanharvey


🇨🇦 If the ocean can calm itself, so can you. #kevinjmellis @canada #canada


Deep in thought ~ The only way to discover the limits of the possible (whatever that might be) is to go beyond them into the impossible. #kevinjmellis #dpmagfavs @artsy


White Rose printed from a glass negative - this is the ONLY print that I did. Sadly, the glass negative broke when something accidentally fell on it, which makes this print that much more important to me. #kevinjmellis @canada #canada


I completely forgot about this one.... #kevinjmellis @canada #canada


(Sound on please) When the moment demands silence. #kevinjmellis @canada #canada 🇨🇦


This was one of my very first portraits 6 years ago ~ just fresh out of photo school at @van.arts @vanartsphoto in 2012 🇨🇦 thank you to @morrisphoto and @adamblasberg for being such amazing light ninja instructors. Natural light from an open north facing garage door. And thank you to @elizabethavedon for your continued support.

I come with no wrapping or pretty pink bows. I am who I am, from my head to my toes. 🇨🇦 #kevinjmellis @canada #dpmagfavs #visitMOA


Don’t forget to your daily little bit of good wherever you are in the world. #kevinjmellis #yyc #calgary #photography @dearphotographer_mag #canada #visitMOA


I never learned to deeply appreciate the true value of creativity until I started to be creative. #kevinjmellis #canada @canada


🇨🇦 You personally can't change the direction of the wind; however, you can always decide (if you so chose) to adjust the sails to always reach your destination... wherever that might be! #kevinjmellis


Creativity is the VERY difficult process of continually jumping off cliffs and then growing your wings on the way down. #kevinjmellis 🇨🇦 #tofino @tourismtofino @dearphotographer_mag #dpmagfavs


How you feel isn’t who you are. #kevinjmellis #newyork #brooklyn


In memory of my dear friend and colleague (my extended family), Mrs. Doris Mclean ~ respected elder from the Carcross First Nations. I will deeply miss your beautiful smile, love for others’ and love for life.


The calming force of the ocean is indescribable. It just is. @canada #canada #kevinjmellis


Make sure the sounds is on - What exactly is living if you never slow your mind down and deeply appreciate what’s around you; both the things you see and also things you don’t see. #kevinjmellis @canada


Please remember, ocean storms always pass for sunnier skies. #kevinjmellis @canada #oh_canada_ #canada @saatchiart
