It is with great pleasure that I can announce today marks the launch of the 5th iteration of the Jake Israel Media Group Web Site! Featuring a multitude of current and previous works from my entire portfolio, I truly hope that you find it both enjoyable and educational.
I have often tried, albeit, unsuccessfully to replicate the hyperrealism of uber-high fashion photography, thinking that it was all facilitated with “nearly impossible to obtain on my budget” Hassleblad and Leica medium-format camera systems. Indeed, some of these cameras cost upwards of $40,000 just for the body. Lenses? Well, those will set you back another $15,000 a piece. A piece! However, the results - can be, well - simply astonishing. Especially in print. They scream amazingness, and a certain level of “fashion”. Modernity. Coolness. Wowza.
