There are lifestyle photographers, and then are photographers that exemplify a life well lived. Jake Stangel represents the latter. Jake is a consummate traveler and cycling enthusiast, with a killer quiche recipe, who instinctively connects his own biography with his subjects. This is true whether shooting outdoor adventure campaigns for Merrell, Reebok, Travel + Leisure, The New York Times Magazine, Adidas, Nike, Visa, Patagonia, Apple, AFAR, and Outside Magazine, or thoughtful interior studies for Airbnb, Dwell, Aesop, and Herman Miller. Jake’s images celebrate the relationship between people and their environments. His multi-layered photographic series intermingle grand architecture alongside the colorful, textured details that make up our everyday. With an ever-expanding client list that includes American Express, OpenTable, Samsung, Microsoft, MasterCard, Chobani, Uniqlo, Rapha,, BMW, PNC Bank, AT&T, Strava, Media Arts Lab, Mini Cooper, and Zara, Jake proves that the only question really worth asking is, “where to next?”
