Defining Your Career Through Personal Work with Mike Kelley

On Think Stupid Simple, we’re joined by world-renowned architectural photographer Mike Kelley. Mike’s distinctive work has attracted high ticket clients that include Tesla Motors, Herman Miller, and Arquitectonica just to name a few, and has since released his own coffee table book, New Architecture Los Angeles. In addition, his interest in aviation led to a series of personal work or “Air Portraits” that first went viral in 2014 and has gone on to be published in virtually every major outlet and featured in museums throughout the world as well as expanded his portfolio to include commissions from industry behemoths such as Emirates Airlines.

In this episode of the podcast, we go in-depth about how Mike found his way to architectural photography, the necessity of creativity in the world, the importance of pursuing personal projects, and much more.
