Amazing, unsolicited Testimonial. Many told me how much I taught and inspired them through years of teaching and informally sharing info. I literally cried with joy reading this. All shook up! I am so grateful people ‘get’ what I am offering:
From “Mark Heck: Jenny’s photo class has been a fun and easy way to introduce myself further into the world of photography and get some amazing insight from one of the real talents.
From her amazing shots of punks greatest, to real world aptitude, I felt honored to catch some insider tips to apply to my day to day photos and try to go further than I thought before.
Jenny has a great knack to make you look around And capture the mood either through manipulating manual settings or making the best of what you have at hand. I would recommend checking out these courses to anyone who wants to dream big and get inspired !
After taking the first course I am considering taking things a step further through editing and she offers introductions and more to the most popular editing suites.
I would rate my course a 10/10 for inspiration alone! Thank you Jenny!”

I’m the most internationally published punk photographer, west coast, first gen, 1976-80. My photos of Blondie, The Clash, Patti Smith, Germs, X, Screamers and many more are (in)famous. Met Museum in NYC, Smithsonian, Rock Hall of Fame, Grammy Museum, etc. Art degrees (BA and MFA) before photographing rock ‘n’ roll.
BUT I WAS CLUELESS about Digital. I wasted thousands of dollars buying wrong gear. I read books and magazines and scoured the net. Yet took thousands of average photographs. THEN I finally taught myself HOW to create Stunning, Memorable, Unique Images.

Gourds and Candles, Holidays, Embellishment and Photo by Jenny Lens, MFA, October 2013 I created this lovely photo at a local restaurant event, as I was leaving, October 2013. The image is SOOC: "straight out of the camera." No adjustments, no presets, no filters....

WHY is this here? Once, when I questioned someone about lack of formatting on documents, I was told the leader is “authentic.” She’s “punk.” I kept my mouth shut, cos I wanted to remain on good terms with the person leading the group.
People say SHOW YOUR FACE. Ok, this is who I am. Divine passed and my hair grayer. I still have that dress. Can fit into my punk clothes. I have one of my cameras and flash. But that was then and this is now.
You can take me outta punk, but never the punk outta me. I was a FAMOUS early punk photographer. WILD. OH the stories I could tell you. The stories my pals share. My photos. You don’t know the half of it. AND I earned college degrees by then. Yeah, the college teacher turned punk. Early on. Always a pioneer!
Beloved photos in shows and museums. Involved in computer graphics, programs and more for over 30 years. Yikes. I taught computer stuff at colleges, universities, vocational centers and computer training centers. I continue to learn. Online. Books, DIY. Teaching online. I’ve been around. I’m still here.
Gotta continually update skills and expand possibilities. Or not. But your competition is following this sage advice.
IF I can do all this, so can YOU! IF you clap your hands three times and BELIEVE in Yourself, Your Dream and this Growth Empowering Process. Ok, you don’t have to clap. Just believe. “Watch. Create. Shine.”
