About Us

Random Observations on Art, Photography, and the Creative Process. These talks focus on the creative process in fine art photography. LensWork editor Brooks Jensen side-steps techno-talk and artspeak to offer a stimulating mix of ideas, experience, and observations from his 40 years as a fine art photographer, writer, and publisher. Topics include a wide range of subjects from finding subject matter to presenting your work and building an audience.

Included in this series are the LensWork Podcasts -- typically 10-15 minutes exploring a topic a bit more deeply -- and our almost daily Here's a thought . . . series. Here's a thought . . . is the audio portion from videos with the same title and are snippets, fragments, morsels, and tidbits from Brooks' fertile (and sometimes swiss-cheesy) brain. Usually just a minute or so. Pretty much daily. Always about photography and the art life.

Brooks Jensen is the publisher of LensWork, one of the world's most respected and award-winning photography publications, known for its museum-book quality printing and luxurious design. LensWork has subscribers in over 73 countries. His latest books are "Seeing in SIXES (2016), The Best of the LensWork Interviews (2016), Photography, Art, and Media (2016), Seeing in SIXES (2017), and Seeing in SIXES (2018).

HT0199 - You Can't Go Back

Here's a thought ... If you go back to someplace you photographed before, it may have changed. Of even greater importance, we are not the same. So even though you can't go back, there is every reason to do so.

HT0197 - Gathering Assets

Here's a thought ... A strategy that works far better for me than the classic "previsualization" of Ansel Adams. Learned from Jerry Ueslmann in an early LensWork interview.

HT0197 - Gathering Assets

HT0196 - Depth

Here's a thought ... Watching a movie more than once (even if you know the outcome), re-reading a novel , and looking more deeply at a photograph can help develop a deeper understanding. That's why it worth the time look again.

HT0196 - Depth

HT0195 - Hits and Misses

Here's a thought ... I love Joni Mitchell's work, but don't like her latest album, Shine, at all; Paul Caponigro's Megaliths leaves me cold, but almost all his other book I love. Sometimes people won't like our work. It happens.

HT0193 - The Foot Zoom

Here's a thought ... Longer lenses change the geometry of the subject, increase depth of field, assist in creating a candid moment, and often allow me to crop tighter than I can by walking closer with my "foot zoom."
