Bio Mitchell Lewis was born in the township of Newport, NC in 1941. He graduated from Morehead City High School and received an Associate Degree in Business Administration from Carteret Community College.
As a member of the United States Air Force, Mitchell proudly served his country for four years. Following his military service, Mr. Lewis worked as an aircraft mechanic at Cherry Point. After retiring he went to work at KMart. He has been there nine years and is currently Shoe Department Leader.
Mitchell got his first real camera, a Cannon 35 mm in 1970. After seeing his first batch of pictures developed, he was totally hooked. He loves to share his talent with family and friends and can frequently be found taking photos at the Morehead Center and at local weddings.
The unique beauty of Carteret County serves as inspiration for many of Mr. Lewis’s photographs. His love of marshes, boats, and our wonderful waterfronts is evident in his work.
