Em Jensen is a freelance analog + digital photographer + mixed media artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Her photographs are a nostalgic nod to past eras, and her work is heavily influenced by the music, fashion and art of the 1960’s + 70’s. Em creates entire photoshoots where she acts as a photographer, stylist, creative director and set designer. Most days you can find her capturing moments and light on her 79′ Canon AV-1, likely listening to Bowie.

Kind Words:

“I just wanted to thank you again for the work you did on those photos. I’m so so thrilled with them. Everyone I show is giving me such great feedback and I definitely wouldn’t have gotten such great results without you. They’re so professional and exactly what I wanted. My teachers loved them too. Thank you so much!!” ~ Sez Brereton, Fashion Designer

“So in love with these photos! I just love them! I love what you did with the dress- you have made it look so amazing! Everything about this is so perfect! Beautiful photos Em.” ~Bec, Wild at Heart

“I’m so happy with the photos I’ve seen- OBSESSED! Even unedited they’re amazing. It’s like Christmas every time I open the dropbox and there’s more photos- Thankyou, you’re ace!!” ~ Lina, Soho Collection

“From initial conceptualization to final images … Em is simply an outstandingly talented creative. Working with her is such a beautiful and organic experience, she’s just so gentle. With her you really feel like you’re a part of a creative process, like the shot really is you.” ~ Pia Sims, model

“Em gives a a very ‘live and model in the moment’ feel. There’s no pressure in her shoots, it honestly just feels like hanging out with a mate. Her work is just so different. It’s unique to the culture we’re in which I think is something important to showcase. She shows you don’t have to photograph people the same way every time, and that’s really, really rare.” ~ Dominik Shiels, model


 

Keen to work together to create some groovy snaps? Here’s how it works:

  1. Fill out the lil form below with a little about you, your vision, concept, inspiration, goals for the shoot
  2. I’ll do my best to get back to you within a day or two; from here we can have a concept creation + planning session. It’s up to you whether you’d like to do this over email, the phone or coffee. We’ll create a vision board and work out the logistics (where we’ll shoot, when we’ll shoot, how many snaps you’d like)
  3. Now the best bit- shoot day!
