About Mike Kelley
A native of Ipswich Massachusetts, Mike studied Studio Art and Environmental Science at the University of Vermont before venturing out to Lake Tahoe, California in hopes of becoming a professional snowboarder. A couple of years and countless injuries later, Mike found himself taking up an offer to photograph a few homes for a realtor friend just as a fun weekend gig. What started out by chance turned out to be the perfect mix of technicality and creativity for Mike, and he was immediately hooked with photographing architecture and interiors.
Mike has been named one of the 200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide 2016/17 by Luerzer’s Archive and his images have been named Digital Camera World’s Best Images of 2014. His Wake Turbulence image was selected as the cover image of Gestalten’s ‘PhotoViz’ book, and other images have been featured in Assouline’s ‘The Art of Travel’ book.
