Jake Michaels’s work is always in flux. On some days, it’s an exploration of aesthetics, hard lines and California color. On others, it’s an investigative journey though different subcultures around the world. Lately, it’s been a blend of the two ideas. 

The LA-based Art Center graduate currently divides his time between commercial and personal photography, and he’s busy compiling a street book and directing documentary shorts. His clients include The New York Times, HP, UBER, and Monocle.
