If I give you my number, Signal app always gets the quickest response.

I’m based in both Northern California and Southern Arizona, but can most often be found in my truck going on photo adventures, chasing storms or filming protests.

I shoot stills, video, some 360° spherical panoramas. My favorite place to be is on the front line of a protest or deep in the wilderness, preferably both. 

Image licensing: commercial media or other for-profit businesses: my rates are reasonable. Please contact me. Please don’t ask me to work for “credit” or “exposure.”

Nonprofit organizations/activists: I’m very open to progressive, grassroots activist organizations using my work for free with permission and a Creative Commons license. Please contact me first, thanks.

Interested in prints? Email me [email protected] I’ll be offering them online shortly!

I’m mostly posting day to day on Mastodon, the noncommercial, add-free, non-surveillance-based, user-run, federated social network. 

You can also find me on Instagram @mikaljakubal where I hardly post at all because everything Facebook touches becomes awful and I don’t have the energy for clout chasing before the almighty algorithm.

Starting in 2023 I’ll be doing much more blogging here, posts that are longer than Mastodon microblog posts, but less formal and involved than the longform photojournal stories I’ve created here. The cool thing is that now anyone on any Fediverse account can follow my blog posts and updates here by searching for @Mikal on your Fediverse server (Mastodon, Pixelfed, etc.) and clicking “follow”. How cool is that?
