I was not a creative kid. I grew up in a small town (Thunder Bay, Ontario 🇨🇦) and spent most of my time playing in the woods. After a really crappy year in 2009, I proactively decided to pick up a camera for therapeutic purposes. Some might not know this, but I work full-time as a medical social worker in an emergency department. Needless to say we (my amazing fellow colleagues and I) see a lot of pretty crappy-sad things. Being creative helps me do my work in the ER and my work in the ER helps me be creative. It's a great balance. #kevinjmellis #yycnow #yyc #calgary #ilford #ilfordphoto #ilfordfilm

“Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scare you. They're there to let you know that something is worth it.” ~ brilliant words from @cjoybellc (your new fan) #kevinjmellis #canadiancreatives #canada #tofino #largeformatcamera #ilfordphoto #ilfordfilm #4x5camera #delta100 @saatchiart

“The strength of a woman is not measured by the impact that all her hardships in life have had on her; but the strength of a woman is measured by the extent of her refusal to allow those hardships to dictate her and who she becomes.” @cjoybellc Thank you @sammymcrurieyoga for braving the terribly cold ocean

Thought is the wind and knowledge the sail. Together, working in concert, one moves forward in all different directions. #kevinjmellis

What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness? Just a thought.... #kevinjmellis #italy #italy🇮🇹

If you don't have a clear understanding as to where your artistic path is going, that's totally okay. You’re not alone! Stay focussed. Forward is always forward, regardless of one’s speed. #kevinjmellis #pacificsands #westcoast #tofino

There’s a MUCH higher level of sexiness in film that one cannot explain. #filmphotography #filmisnotdead thank you @toimageworks and @edwardburtynsky for taking great care with my film. All the best from #yyc #kevinjmellis
