DAVID MITCHENER Melbourne photographers

"I am an Australian based photographer, specialising in food and drink, hotels, and interiors. I studied photography at RMIT University, Melbourne, and Brooks Institute of Photography, California. 

I’ve lived and worked in both Copenhagen and New York, and my craft has found me travelling extensively throughout Australia and Southeast Asia on advertising commissions and many hotel assignments. 

Recent projects include the amazing Barai Spa in Hua Hin Thailand (just pre-COVID!). Since travel has been largely impossible this year, I’ve shot several local Melbourne hotels including the refurbished Crowne Plaza hotel, and tackled the new frontier of photography for several wonderful local landscape architects. Winning the Architecture and Interiors category of the Spotlight Awards recently was a real honour. The image – from a villa shoot for Six Senses Resort Con Dao, is one of my favorites, for it’s simplicity and sense of calm – which I think sums up the resort."
