"Jenny’s photo class has been a fun and easy way to introduce myself further into the world of photography and get some amazing insight from one of the real talents. From her amazing shots of punks greats, to real world aptitude, I felt honored to catch some insider tips to apply to my day to day photos and try to go further than I thought beforeMark Heck

Do you want to create storytelling, visual branded images with your camera?

  • Do you think cool photos are a result of luck or the right camera? Not. It’s a combo of art and science, which anyone can joyfully learn.

  • You can use any camera. But a DSLR camera with interchangeable lenses, and external buttons and dials, gives you the most options.

  • If you only use Auto settings, and never touch the dials, you are wasting your money on a DSLR Camera. Manual Settings unleash the power within your camera, lenses and you!

  • Do you want to know about various lenses and their uses?

  • Want some tips for creating your own unique style for Branded, Storytelling Images? ON A SMALL BUDGET.

  • If you want clarity on these and other topics, you are in for a treat! Buckle up for a good time!

Which Photo Workshop is Best for You?

"What Camera? What Lens?" is a stand-alone introductory Workshop. 

  • Overview of various lenses
  • Intro to Manual settings (some of the dials, buttons and sliders sitting outside your camera)
  • Using only Automatic with a DSLR camera is a waste of money
  • Unleash the magic of a DSLR camera! 
  • No charts, numbers or diagrams like you see everywhere
  • Just photos with explanations WHY you'd use this lens or that setting
  • Illuminating, fun, liberating


Photography for Branded Storytelling Images is a more comprehensive, detailed, longer Workshop.

  • Longer, with more photos, more in-depth coverage of various lenses, settings, lighting situations
  • Deeper discussion about composition or WHAT story are you telling? What mood are you setting? What do you want viewer to see and feel?
  • Combining basic technical skills with intention are part of creating YOUR Brand, YOUR Art
  • Can be a stand-alone Workshop. But more beneficial when taken with the comprehensive "Watch. Create. Shine" Workshop Series


"Take Photos. Get Famous." is a quickstart guide for aspiring music photographers. 

  • Imagine being a real music photographer, with a real camera, getting up close and personal with performers
  • Start with using the right lens and manual settings to create kick-ass photos
  • Highly recommended you add the Success Survival Kit 
  • A good camera alone won't get you in the door

Wanna be Inspired and Learn from ONE of THE Ten Most Influential Rock Photographers of ALL Time?!

Rock Music or Rock Crystals, Jewelry, Flowers, Food, Yarns, whatever: You can do it all with my cool Tips, Tricks and Techniques

You rarely have an op to actually hear and see secrets from a top rock photographer! Grab this op while it's hot.

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. I'm the most published early punk rock photographer, west coast, first gen. My work seen in major museums, exhibits, docs, books, mags, merch and collector's homes.

 

Iggy Pop told me my photos were as good as his photographer. 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. Now you can follow in my footsteps!

A Few FAMOUS Published Photos

If I were to list all the photos and everywhere they've been used, you'd have to set aside several hours or longer to see all the photos or read the list!

I don't wanna talk about me, but I gotta prove I walk this walk!! I haven't updated my Punk Photo resume in years. You can see more Punk Photos at PunkPioneers.com or larger at my online photo store.

People Are Talking

"Jenny has a great knack to make you look around and capture the mood either through manipulating manual settings or making the best of what you have at hand. I would recommend checking out these courses to anyone who wants to dream big and get inspired. I would rate my course 10/10 for inspiration alone. Thank you Jenny!" ~ Mark Heck


“Thanks for all the advice and support re my site design issues. Very useful and more than my designer discussed or suggested.” ~ Ashley Cherry


"YOU are THE Punk Rock Goddess Photographer!" ~Rodney Bingenheimer, the "Mayor of Sunset Strip."

"You would be a great teacher because you have a plethora of knowledge" ~ Kimra Luna, BTBY, Freedom Hackers Galaxy


"Your work made me realize that every show was an EVENT, a moment outside "real" life that should and could be internalized and immortalized. Making the ugly look good and the good look ugly. And the music didn't suck either." ~Erich Dye, Facebook


"Great pix. Jenny you are more than an artist. You caught the whole passion of those times. You should be world famous with all the financial security and recognition that brings." ~Liz Winchell, an early LA punk rocker


“We were contacted by a large organization with press, radio and other media coverage within first month after Jenny Lens redesigned our ecommerce site. 

Our site rarely displayed by Google til she performed her magic! I couldn’t buy media coverage like that for what I paid Jenny. She organized info, provided search engine strategies, a total facelift and trained me to use it. 

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

Compare cost to the Colleges and Universities where I taught comparable programs:

  • 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.
