About Jaleel


Jaleel King Wheelchair Photographer Sweet Ass Photo by my friend Sam Green of Sam Green Photo

I am an award winning visual storyteller, also know as a photographer, who is in a committed relationship with Chocolate Cheesecake, Häagen-Dazs Green Tea ice cream, Sushi, Manga, and Anime; not in that order. In my free time, I’m a railroader, tech junky, motivator, teacher, speaker, and gamer; among other things.

As a tech geek, I first went to school to study computers, but felt art was my passion, and enrolled in The Art Institute to pursue a career in video production. During each of these journeys it was photography that stood by me and it was photography that claimed my heart.

I have been a wheelchair user since age 8, and I am a photographer who has a different perspective on how I visually see life. Allowing me to never accept the whys as excuses and going for why nots as the challenges in order to overcome to them, as seen in my work. I was led into a world that is beautiful and challenging at the same time! A world filled with raw emotion and randomness that make each moment and click of the shutter so UNIQUE!

PS. I have my passport for travel! :)
