Photo by Michael Collins

Melanie Gillis graduated from The University of Toronto in 1995 with a BSc in Psychology. For the following year she taught psychology at Sheridan College while pursuing her photography on the side.  In 1997 she combined her passions for social psychology, fine art photography and people in general, and opened her studio in Guelph, where she built her career as a photographic artist. She moved to Hamilton in 2004 where she currently lives and works.

The Melanie Gillis Studio and Gallery is at 126 James Street North, Hamilton Ontario, L8R 2K7. It is in the heart of Hamilton’s artist district of James Street North. The studio is a warm and intimate setting tucked away on the third floor of a historic building on the East side of James.

All photo sessions with Melanie include light make-up for one, the studio or location session, a complete set of proofs to be viewed on line, and a post session consultation.  All final images are ordered separately and are fully retouched to the highest quality and are priced separately. Sessions are by appointment, and may be booked for days, evenings, or weekends.
