About me

Hi, I'm Mitch

Photography is an art

It’s about finding extra-ordinary

In an ordinary place

I’m a freelance photographer for hire based in London. To make myself stand out from crowd that’s now awash with digital photographers, I shoot and colour grade my photos with a cinematic tone. I treat each edit as if it’s a movie still. This isn’t just with fancy Instagram filters. I love to tell a story with imagery, and I try to fill a shot with as much as possible to provoke an emotional response from the viewer.

"Shoot now, edit later."

This is my photography mantra.

The blessing (and curse) of digital photography means that you could have almost an endless reel of images. However, if you don't take all those shots, you might miss that perfect moment.

Film and cinematography have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I try and think of every photo I take as a film still.


I've been working in the professional lighting industry since 2008. A camera has naturally been in my hand ever since I can remember!


If you have either a specific idea of what kind of photoshoot you want, or none at all, we can work together to determine what you need. I can recreate any look from your favourite film!


Once the photoshoot is over and you have the images to review, any further tweaks or edits are all part of the package.
