Jake Chessum’s naturally spontaneous and exuberant approach to photography has led to a long and varied career. His timeless and engaging celebrity portraits have appeared in many prestigious publications. The range of celebrities he has been commissioned to shoot span the worlds of film, politics, sports and music and includes: Robert De Niro, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Douglas, Jennifer Connelly, 50 Cent, Shaun White, Alec Baldwin, Spike Lee, Kofi Annan, Sir Ian McKellen, Bill Gates…the list goes on and on. Chessum studied graphic design at St. Martin’s School of Art and after graduating began his photography career in London, where his first commission was for The Face magazine. This led to an enduring relationship with the title. The Face sent him to the USA and in 1999 Chessum moved permanently to NYC. With writer Amy Larocca, Chessum created “The Look Book” column for New York Magazine. This body of work resulted in the best selling book “The New York Look Book – a gallery of street fashion” published by Melcher media in 2007.
