 “A highly original photographer with an eye for the unusual arrangements of everyday objects.” Mullaly,T. Arts column, Daily Telegraph

  • For over thirty years Mike Coldicott has worked as a freelance advertising photographer. Today, he focuses his creativity on capturing the landscape. His commitment to his art is boundless; he will get up in the middle of the night and drive miles to frame a perfect sunrise.


  • Mike started his career with the leading advertising agency Harrison Cowley where he specialised in studio and location photography. He was later invited to set up a photographic department based in Leamington; travelling extensively throughout Britain, Europe and the Middle East.


  • In 1981 Mike started his own studio and quickly built up an impressive client list. He gained a reputation for creative photography in both the commercial and cultural worlds; his commissions led him on a number of diverse and stimulating shoots. These included an acclaimed studio session for Laney with Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, and a Welsh quarry shoot for Subaru cars, which was featured in the Sunday Times colour supplement.


  • His series of images for the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery was commended in the press and he also received a Kodak Business Calendar Award, which was presented to him at The Royal Albert Hall.


  • In 2008 Mike moved to Cheltenham and was able to devote all his time to his love of fine art photography. Over the last 5 years he has travelled widely at home and abroad, and has collected images of some truly unique locations.


  • The essence of Mike’s photographic vision can be seen in his debut exhibition, ‘Monochrome’, at The Gardens Gallery, Montpellier, Cheltenham from 11th-17th December 2013.
