3 Jeff Mitchum Galleries

Landscape photographer Jeff Mitchum says, “There have been thousands of times that I have taken my pack with tripod in tow to a location only to watch the light fizzle in grey. Yet, I would still return time and time again until what was already captured in my heart was revealed in that magical morning or evening. Two of my favorite images, ‘Romancing the Light’ and ‘Three Brothers,’ are a perfect example of something seen with the heart before nature’s light show began.” Mitchum also has a permanent display of Sir Anthony Hopkins’ works among other artists.
