"I take tremendous pride myself in taking a mentoring approach to my workshops, tours, lectures and classes! I try to offer the BEST VALUE of any photography workshop or class in Kansas City!"
Not only are we extremely blessed to have lived in many beautiful areas of the world to photograph, but within several hours to less than a day’s travel is some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United States.
Mike Jensen is an master level professional photographer.
Mike and Co-Owner Cindy Jensen
reside in Lenexa, Ks where they can be close to family yet close to nature as well.
Mike has been taking photos almost all of his life, starting at age 8 with his mother’s Brownie camera. After spending a number of years in “corporate life” Mike became consumed by digital photography in 2001.
Since 2001 Mike has amassed an amazing collection of award winning landscape & wildlife images as well as provided photography services for Builders, Realtors, High School Seniors, Families, Weddings and Professional Portraits. Recognizable among his clients are Amazon & Apple.
“I am an experienced teacher in Photography, Photoshop & Lightroom. I also write for many local magazines, newspapers, blogs and have authored several books. “
My fine art photography website is at mikejensen.photography. If you’re interested in High School Senior Photos, please visit our senior photo site.
After spending the last 15 years living in both the Northwest (Bend, Or.) and the Southwest (Albuquerque, NM) Mike and his wife Cindy have settled back in the Kansas City area to be close to family. Their fine art photography and senior photo photography business is based out of Lenexa, Ks.
For almost 15 years Mike Jensen has been a master level professional photographer. Along the way many people have taken the time to mentor and teach Mike so he endeavors to give back with his skills.
One of the ways of giving back is through teaching. Since 2009 Mike has taught Photography, Photoshop and Lightroom at the collegiate level as well as by community lectures, presentations, workshops and classes.
Mike also presents programs, lectures and critiques for local Camera and Photo Clubs as well as community competitions.
Of teaching Mike says “The true joy of teaching photography is in the field. This is when you can get your student into the moment and get instant results leading to an image they always wanted to be able to create.”
"If you are a photographer seeking challenges and knowledge, I welcome you. I am ALL ABOUT teaching beginners and knowledge seekers! I believe that we are never too good to learn from others and as such, I am a frequent taker of workshops and classes from my mentors! I am a strong believer that we don't need the newest gear to learn photography. Something in the last 3 years will do. Your best photographs will come after learning how to use every knob, button and dial on your camera! Do that before buying that new camera!"
Also, don't be cheap on editing. LEARN IT! I recommend Lightroom and Photoshop. The deal ($9.95/month) Adobe offers is too good to pass up for the best photo editing software available! On One is a good option also. I have been a Beta tester for all three for years!
I hope you'll find my workshops and classes fun and informative! More than that, I hope to make another friend who is a photographer!
