MARTY MELLWAY PHOTOGRAPHY
I started making films while living and travelling in Asia back in 2010. I wanted to capture and express something more than I was able to with photography. It has been a long and rewarding journey to teaching myself how to film edit and produce these films.
In recent years I have used my passion for film making to document environmental projects.
Fall Colours in the Northern Rockies
(Ancient Ranges of Trembling Aspens)
The Northern Rockies of British Columbia Canada is a land of wild untouched landscapes. As the colours turn in the fall the land is transformed, Stands of vibrant yellow trembling aspens cover the land as far as the eye can see.
I spent three months filming all over the Northern Rockies in BC Canada to make this film.
Take Back the Tap
Surfrider Pacific Rim's new campaign, Take Back the Tap, has the end goal of banning all single-use plastic water bottles under 1L from the Pacific Rim!
We will achieve this by supporting businesses to eliminate plastic water bottles, and, instead, offer water from the tap, fountain, and/or dispenser. We are challenging all businesses to get on board and join the campaign to eliminate single-use plastic bottles by March 22nd, 2021. Surfrider will then lobby local Districts to add this item to the Single-Use Plastic Regulation.
The Liard River Hot Springs
The Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park is located in the far north of British Columbia, Canada on the Alaska Highway. I have spent 4 years in this area working in the park during which I filmed and photographed this short film.
This area is for me very sacred and we need to continue to protect it and all of the remaining northern wilderness. Produced in partnership with BC Parks. This film was shot in the Park and in the surrounding area including the northern Rockies just south of Liard.
A journey through the North. The north has forever changed my perception of beauty and nature.
Thanks to my travel companions for a great adventure.

Peru, The land of the Incas
From the remoteness of Peru's Andes Mountains to the unexplored territories of its Amazon rain forest, the country holds a mysticism all its own. It's the motherland of the Inca civilization and home to Machu Picchu, alpaca products, and more than 4,000 types of native potatoes.
This film documents my journey through the incredible country of Peru, one of the most diverse countries I have ever been to.
Bali, The Island of the Gods
A journey through the culture and wild places of Bali, Indonesia.
I've been to Indonesia many times in the past while travelling through Asia and I have always wanted to show people how I see Bali.
