We can all agree that this year didn’t exactly go according to plan, but after lockdown Anna Michell hit the ground running with two Harper’s Bazaar covers published and a couple more international magazine editorials on the way.
She is also excited to share a more experimental story which was shot for Noctis Magazine earlier this year, exploring the theme of futurism, which turned out to be incredibly prescient.
Anna is now looking forward to getting stuck into some new projects.

With a love for colour bordering on obsession, a playful spirit and creative energy that feeds into all of her photography, recent months have seen Anna Michell working on several exciting projects.
Personal work has been inspired by a range of sources, from Mick Jagger to moody girls at parties, her images expressing a passion for the work that has translated into commissions from clients like The Rake, Noctis Magazine and NAMESldn, and repeat clients Chester Barrie and Velsvoir.
Anna’s stylised photographs come from the heart and this can be seen in the images that are bright, detailed and evocative.
This year Anna will continue working on personal projects and commissions from her South London studio whilst planning the trip of a lifetime in the Bolivian jungle.

Anna Michell is an internationally published photographer with eight years of experience working in the photography and advertising industry. Born and bred in South London, she can be found most days working from her Bermondsey studio, listening to 70s disco and drinking too much coffee.
Anna's vibrant personality and attention to technical detail are a perfect combination for creating images that are glossy yet unique and spontaneous, which has led her to shoot editorial and commercial stills for clients such as The Rake Magazine, Grazia Pakistan, Chester Barrie and Richard James Mayfair, alongside a steady stream of personal work which keeps her creatively on her toes. Inspiration can come from anywhere, whether it's a solo journey through Latin America, taking photos in the kitchen at a party or admiring oil paintings in a gallery (for a recent personal project, Anna single handedly painted six backdrops in the style of Henri Matisse).

The last few months have seen some great output from Anna Michell including a celebrity cover for Khush Magazine; lookbooks for Chester Barrie shot on location in a grand home in Hertfordshire; and Tailor Made London, for which Anna also painted a bespoke canvas background. Other projects ranged from a male beauty shoot with Madre Studio Jewellery, to portraits of celebrity chefs in the splendid interior of Fishmonger’s Hall.
In addition to commissioned work, she is proud to have made a strong portfolio of self-directed projects over the summer. She has a studio in Bermondsey and also shoots on locations from sunny Seville to windy Scotland.
As a person with a light hearted disposition, Anna connects with her subject on a personal level resulting in photos that have an authenticity to them. Her unique style combines a playful and imaginative flair with fine attention to detail, which keeps clients coming back year on year.
