Teaching Experience

Praise for Jenny Lens as Teacher and Photographer

“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 greats, 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. ~ Mark Heck

“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. I would rate my course 10/10 for inspiration alone. Thank you Jenny!” ~ Mark Heck

“I consider you a source of info, if not an expert, on so many topics: art, photography, fancy computer web/tech stuff I know nothing about.” ~ Andrea Stone-French

“You’re remarkable,” ~ Felicia Marie Tomasko, Editor of LA Yoga and Bliss magazines

My Mission

I know what it’s like to walk in darkness and confusion. I am about enlightenment. Lightening your load. So you can light up your life and others. I love seeing the light bulb go off, the a-ha moments.

If you know there’s a better life, and willing to explore, with an adventurer’s POV, then let’s start your journey. Treasures await you, around you and most of all, inside you. Keep dreaming big. Cos when you are dream big, you rock.

Said by a REAL Rockstar Photographer! My early punk rock photos are internationally recognized as great works of art. When punk was more than merely fashion. When punk was a Cultural Revolution. When punk was fun.
