Jensen’s work takes you on an adventure – journeys into emotional states packed with passion and provocation. He never loses his respect for realism and his commitment to fearless exploration, all characteristics that stem from his background in photojournalism (Kate Stanworth, Rangefinder Magazine).
For the past 5 years, the nature of Jensen’s work has had him based in the USA, as part of Getty Images’ Global Assignments team. During this period he has ridden the boundary between commercial work (clients including Toyota Texas Road Trip) and photojournalism (Hurricane Katrina for CNN, the Israel-Lebanon conflict). All Jensen’s work is done with the intention of keeping it like it actually happened in-camera, authentic, even if there’s hours of post-production in the work.
Prior to that he was Assistant to Stewart Cohen for three years (www.stewartcohen.com), working on everything from Nokia jobs taking them through four cities and three countries, to exclusive Anthony Robbins Platinum events in Fiji.
His work with Stewart inspired Jensen’s work philosophy: Always take the work one step beyond what the client wants. Give them what they ask for, but put your own cherry on top. Have fun scouting, traveling, discussing the shots you are going to make, trying the latest equipment. Clients sense the enthusiasm and love being a part of it.
Jensen recently relocated with his family to Tokyo and has returned his focus to commercial photography, relishing the opportunities that the Asian region brings.
Jensen holds a Bachelor of Journalism degree from Indiana University.
