On this episode of The Angry Millennial, we’re speaking with Jaleel King, street portrait photographer/educator based out of Philadelphia. Jaleel has been making the speaking rounds recently speaking at Hallmark Institute, WPPI, and even the Zero Regrets Conference in Australia. He's also recently been featured in an article on Fstoppers regarding the issue of depression in creatives.
Anyone who meets Jaleel agrees that his joyful energy around other people is quite infectious and unrelenting. However, what some people do not know is that Jaleel has been wheelchair bound since he was eight years old due to a tragic shooting. Yet, it's this same tragedy so early on that gave him a completely different perspective than most other photographers, allowing him to see his work in a unique way. We chat about his ability to throw brand loyalty out the window in search of the perfect tool for the job, working with Profoto, the importance of collaboration projects as a photographer, and lots more on this episode of The Angry Millennial with your host, Jose Rosado and co-host, Stevie Chris.
