Mike Jensen's Photography Workshops

Photography Programs & Lectures

A GREAT way to learn and keep growing during these restricting times.   Since the COVID breakout, Mike has been conducting classes and lectures via Zoom and other online tools.  He is very comfortable presenting online.
Mike Jensen is an experienced camera club lecturer and presenter. Here are a few of his programs!

Photography Tips and Tutorials

This is a new section on my website. I'll be adding more as they are developed. Check back. Also, I have plenty of tutorials on my YouTube channel.

COVID Cautions for Photography Workshops

First, I hope each of you is healthy and well.  Many of you as my students and colleagues are also good friends so I have a sincere concern for each of you.

Next, as of March 15, 2021 I am fully vaccinated!  Yay!

During the COVID 19 Pandemic, I've been super obsessed at keeping things safe.  I've been working on new workshops for you for over a year and I've got some great ones!  Given President Biden's goal of getting everyone who wants a vaccination taken care of by early Summer 2021, that is when I'll target to resume some in person workshops.  Until then, please stay in touch and let me know if you need anything! ~ Mike

Learning Exhibitions

Exhibitions are a great way to measure your progress.  An important thing to remember is that art is not a competition.  Even though "winners" are announced, the true value of art is that communication from creator to viewer.

Challenging The Portfolio Project

The idea here is to choose a specific project.  This is a project you’ll commit to working on for about 10 months.  You can choose something that really intrigues you, or something totally off the wall.  We’ll help you drill down to a perfect project for you.  More info.

Canon Master Photographer Mike Jensen


Mike Jensen is a Lenexa, Kansas based Sony master professional photographer & educator.

For many years Mike has taught Photography and Digital Creation/Editing at the collegiate level, workshops and photo tours.

Mike Jensen Workshops is based in Kansas City and many of his classes and workshops are local and locally based.  He also conducts workshops nationally and soon, internationally.

Mike has learned and been mentored by many of his contemporaries, and as such he has a tremendous desire to give back.

One such "pay it forward" project is called the Portfolio Project. It is detailed on the website Purposeful.Photography. The idea is to create a year long project which sticks to a written artist statement and the end outcome is only 12- 15 images.

Mike also participates in many local and regional art endeavors.  He has acted as juror at many local and state wide art shows.  Mike is a frequent guest lecturer at local camera clubs.
