About

London-based Kell Mitchell is an award-winning director and photographer whose flair for storytelling has won her an international client list.

After graduating in Sydney, where she scooped a series of awards in contemporary photography, Kell moved to London to conquer the city’s fashion scene.

Honing her craft over many years by assisting some of the world’s most renowned fashion photographers, Kell went on to shoot advertising campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Harvey Nichols, for whom she created the viral film The 100 Year Old Model in partnership with Vogue.

Today, Kell predominantly shoots lifestyle film & stills campaigns, working with clients ranging from technology & beauty goliaths to leading health brands.

In recent years, Kell has created award-winning digital content for Cannes Lion and was shortlisted for a British Arrows Award. Her meticulous professionalism has seen her collaborate with global brands like Google, Emirates, and Samsung.

Beyond her commercial shoots, Kell channels her passion for working with real people into projects like Channel 4’s documentary series 'WTF is Cosplay?'. Her stripped-back approach draws in the viewer, forging an emotive connection to the subject.


Here’s what others have to say:

“Kell creates a great atmosphere on set that really puts the cast at ease. She’s super collaborative with me as the creative and is also really great working with clients.”
- Scarlett, Creative Director, REVOLT 

"Kell has done a couple of projects for us, and she remains top of out list for this type of work. She is very creative, understands what you want, but tends to take it to a new level with lots of suggestions and preparation work. She has helped us to craft scripts, characters, and give us a very good understanding of her vision for each project.
She's a great person to work with, lots of enthusiasm and professionalism bundled into one.
I will continue to call her, and would recommend her without hesitation.
"
-
Paul Gillam, Creative Director, FRUKT

"Kell is a lively person with a can-do attitude. She not only grasped the essence of what I wanted but also added her unique point of view, which resulted in a final film I am very proud of."
- Den Cops, Creative Director, FITCH

“Kell is always my first choice of director. She’s great to work with and always delivers”
- Matt Seccombe, Senior Art Director, Proximity London
