Mike Caldwell has been taking photographs for most of his life. After an upbringing in the north of England – and hours spent in his father’s darkroom – Mike moved to London where he assisted many of the capital’s leading photographers in studios and on location. During this time he began to create his own portfolio, specialising in location photography.
Early commissions came from the travel business, taking Mike to numerous European destinations. These were followed by commissions from the editorial world, for which he photographed a wide range of subjects. Mike’s client base then moved towards the design and advertising sector which is the field he works in today, primarily for hospitality and luxury brands.
Mike’s work has taken him all over the world, and continues to do so. Projects range from photographing resorts in the Caribbean to aerial photography of cruise ships above Cape Town. His location experience is second to none, and his client list – many of whom remain long-standing – is most impressive.
Mike is a D&AD award winner and member of the Association of Photographers.
