Benefit from Jenny Lens "Dreaming Big" Workshops

Be Inspired by "One of Ten Most Influential Rock Photographers of ALL Time" who uses Tech and Marketing in Fun Ways!

Sharing MY top tips, tricks and secrets just for you! So YOU don't have to spend the many years and thousands of dollars to figure this out.

Grab these ops before I raise the fees.

Adorama, THE most prestigious photo gear supplier and photo lab for decades, said  I am "one of the ten most influential rock photographers of all time."

"Jenny Lens was not just one of the few photographers chronicling the early punk scene in both North America and London, she was also one of the few women working in a very male-dominated field. Her life is pretty fascinating and made up of the three acts usually associated with characters in movies and novels."

Patti Smith called me "the girl with the camera eye," from LA's Roxy Theater.

Iggy Pop told me my photos were as good as his photographer (a top pro, and I was just starting out). He asked me where I'd been. I said, "Earning art degrees." He smiled and nodded. You can see some of my art below.

I learned from artists. Continued with TOP tech and marketing gurus. Now you can do the same and learn from me! SAVE TIME AND MONEY and lots of tears too!

"We were in business 12 years and no large company ever found us. Our previous ecommerce site was a mess, badly designed and hard to find info. 

She organized info, provided search engine strategies, a total facelift and trained me to use it. 

Always a pleasure working with Jenny. Brightest, most energetic person I know. Fun too. She’s thorough, but results worth it!” ~Mark Martinez, graphic artist and designer

Cost Comparison: Colleges and Universities (where I taught comparable programs) and DreamingBig.Academy Workshops

  • UCLA Extension charges from $979 to $1075. I taught Illustrator at UCLA Extension.
  • Santa Monica College charges hundreds, depending if resident or not. I taught Photoshop at SMC. Gave my notes to teacher who replaced me when I left, who gave them to his replacement.
  • Comparable costs at other colleges, universities and computer training centers where I taught (under worse conditions for teachers and students, which is why I’m teaching online!)
  • You can learn more real world situations than what I was forced to teach at colleges, and for a fraction of the cost!
  • Why so affordable? 
  • I don’t want cost to be a barrier to YOUR Empowerment, Growth and Joy. 
  • That’s why.
