ABOUT.


Hi, I am Jens

Let me help you to get to know me. I am Jens, a freelance photographer based in beautiful Hamburg, Germany. I found my enduring passion for photography back in 2006 and run this website since late 2015. Visiting new countries and regions is what I enjoy the most. So far I have been to about 45 countries worldwide. But my bucket list holds many more places that I want to explore within the next years. My day job is as Head of Division at the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce.

 

A Sabbatical to reset my focus

Together with my lovely wife we took a six month sabbatical in 2019 and 2020. We travelled the world for three months (Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Hawai'i) and currently spent two months in South Africa. I was able to photograph lots of stunning places during that time and even had a few photo jobs along the way.

 

My side business

2019 was also the year that I officially set up a side business for photography. Jens Assmann Photography is now a licensed German company and I would like to grow this business.

 

My Photography

Photography is not about one single genre for me. I love the variety of it and switching between them. But if I had to name just one genre it would be Landscape and Travel Photography. I studied Geography and am always up for vast untouched landscapes, volcanoes, glaciers, mountains and dramatic seascapes. Iceland and New Zealand are very high on my alltime favorites list. I love being outdoors and a good hike. Seeing some wildlife when out and about makes my day. The every day life and different cultures with their way of living is what I try to capture with my Street Photography.
