A long way from Los Angeles

I have not written much at all on here, which I simultaneously regret and also enjoy. I had one of the most productive summers of my life, so am loathe to say that I was ‘too busy’ to write up here, because I believe people who say they’re busy just can’t manage their time properly […]

LA AIRSPACE Kickstarter: Halfway done, 86% funded!

I have neglected the blog on this site for the past month, which is rather unfortunate, considering all that has been going on! I recently decided that the time was right to wrap up and publish my work featuring the city of Los Angeles as photographed from a helicopter. The project is named LA AIRSPACE […]

Architectural Photography Q+A With University of Lancashire Student

I recently received an email from a student at the University of Lancashire in Preston, England, asking for a few minutes to answer some questions for a report he’d been working on.

Wine Country Pre-Fab with BluHomes in Healdsburg

Apologies for the lack of blogging lately! I haven’t been in Los Angeles much at all, with trips to San Francisco, NYC, Dubai, Mexico and somewhere else that I forget, it’s just been an absolutely manic yet totally exciting winter for me. ¬†At the end of 2014 I was worried that there would just be […]

Such was the case on a recent shoot with NYID, KLEAN, and White Rabbit Partners. ¬†Natalie Younger designed a […]

The gear post: What does Michael Kelley use to create his work?

Architectural photography is a haven for gearheads, and I frequently get asked what I’m using. So a few days ago I figured I’d lay it all out and put it to rest once and for all. I rigged up a rather hilarious setup in my living room to shoot this, and took a few hours […]

It’s been a crazy few months with lots of great new opportunities, so I figured I would round up a few of my favorite bits of press and throw them up on the blog. Very exciting to see my work getting out there and around, and in some notable publications too. Many thanks to the […]

Ventura County From Above: On assignment with 805 Living

A few months ago I was invited by 805 living to shoot a huge feature for their 10th anniversary issue. Having seen my aerial work of the city of Los Angeles, knowing that Ventura County was just a quick hop north, they asked if I would be willing to give their county the same treatment […]

Los Angeles Prefab: BluHomes in Malibu

I’ve photographed a lot of things in Los Angeles, heck, and things much further afield. And this was hands down one of the coolest things I’ve shot. BluHomes, a San Francisco-based company that specializes in prefabricated homes, just completed one of their flagship homes near Malibu and I was given the assignment to photograph it. […]
