Mr. JENS JAKOBSSON
EFIAP, NSMiF/g, ASDF
Jens Jakobsson is a Danish photographer with a great passion for nature and travel photography. He uses natural light to capture his photos, no matter if it is sublime landscapes, people, animals or intimate fauna. His images zoom out, taking the larger landscape in, and then zoom in to show the intricate details of an animal, a flower petal or a leaf.
He enjoys traveling, with a primary focus on Scandinavia, photographing nature and wildlife in Nordic destinations such as Iceland, Sweden, Norway, the Faroe Islands, and his native Denmark. Sometimes bringing his tent to sleep amongst the wilderness, Jens process involves getting as close as possible (always with respect to natural habitats) to nature, both hiking green hills and crawling in the dirt to get the perfect exposure.
Jens Jakobsson’s journey into high quality art photography began a few years ago in 2019. This year he also joined his first competition in photography, the Danish Championship in Photography, with a gold medal in one of the categories and number 10 in the total competition. Every year since he has found himself in top 10 and in 2022 he was the overall winner of the Danish championship.
This has encouraged him to join international photography salons worldwide to get feedback on the works in a fierce competition with great photographers all over the world. This has led to several FIAP and PSA gold medals during the last 3 years.
His works has been on exhibit in both a gallery in New York and on local exhibitions in Denmark. Jens Jakobsson also enjoy making talks about photography around in Denmark and he has been judging in both international competitions and locally in Denmark.
