Kyra Melinda is a British/Greek fashion, portrait and street photographer.
Photography has run in her family for years, dating back to her great grandfather who was a passionate amateur photographer in the late 1800s in Brighton, England. Her grandfather and father were also amateur photographers.
Kyra Melinda studied at the British Academy of Photography, where she was mentored by International award winning fashion and wedding photographer Emma-Jane Lewis.
Her photographic style is elegant and romantic yet strong and modern. She is inspired by unusual surroundings, personal stories and emotive imagery.
Her latest work, People of Brighton, started out as a personal project out of love for her hometown and its beautiful and interesting people. It is developing into a full portrait portfolio and is a work in progress. Her lens captures the essence of diversity of this lively city.
She is also a Biochemist with a multi faceted background, a Certified Health and Eating Psychology Coach and a professional blogger for the Huffington Post.
