About Anthony Mitchell and Ayalem Photography

Anthony Mitchell (Ayalem) is an award winning professional landscape and nature photographer. He has worked with clients all over the Cotswolds District and exhibited across the UK with great success since 2011. Recently he was awarded a commended award in the Landscape Photographer of the Year UK 2016 competition for his images “Sheepsies”. He has been published in National Geographic and Lake District and Lancashire Life magazines.

Anthony’s interest in photography started at an early and he was always keen to compose even the most candid family photo (probably on account of his mothers ability to crop heads off people with alarming regularity!). Living in Kendal, on the doorstep to the Lake District provided a huge inspiration for his later work. Later, as a physics student at the University of Leeds, he undertook a successful final year project trying to replicate molecular structure on a macro scale using photography as a medium. Following a varied career history including banking, fraud investigation and running a wine merchants he found himself, as many people do, unsure where he wanted to go in life. With a partner who was suffering from a serious illness and a job at the time that offered no reward, he decided to make a change. Taking on-board the advice of many people who told him that he should sell his work, he set to finding a new direction and went about finding a way to enjoy life again. So, in 2012, Ayalem Photography was born and Anthony began to develop the business and hone his photographic skills.

Anthony’s work is known for its often minimal and mathematical approach to composition which can probably be attributed to his mathematical/physics background. He prefers to minimise editing by using filters on camera which often result in dramatic colours.
