Alan Jensen Photography
Photographer Alan Jensen wrote me the kindest email today! It is so encouraging to hear from a photographer as most that I share on this site are ones that I spent hours finding -- not the other way around. It feels good to have days when the most wonderful submission arrives -- I didn't have to work for it! :) Alan is an Australian photographer who recently relocated to nearby Amsterdam with his partner, Cath Conroy who is an equally talented photographer. Here is some of Alan's work for Real Living magazine...
I'd love to receive more submissions from talented photographers, especially those who specialize in still life and interiors since highlighting their work is something that I enjoy doing as I don't think photographers receive as much credit as they do for all the beautiful work we see in magazines that we usually credit the magazine itself. Behind the scenes you have so many talented people and I want to highlight them more and more for two reasons: I'm inspired by beautiful photography and learn from it and secondly, I want others to think more about what they see, study images (dissect them even), learn from them and also to acknowledge the person behind the glory shots as so many of those you find in magazines have portfolios online -- just google them and see what you find!
Thank you Alan for writing to me (and Pia too!) and welcome to northern Europe!
