An SLR camera, given to Jens Luebkemann as a present at the age of 15, was the initial ignition for his professional career. Against the wish of the parents, the Bremen-born decided for a Photo Design study in Hamburg. After graduation, he spent years as an assistant in fashion and industrial photography and finally became studio manager of an advertising agency in Mannheim. Since 2002, Jens has been a freelancer in his new hometown of Mannheim, specializing in people, lifestyle & concept photography. According to Jens, his best images are created in the team and through good communication with the models. As a photographer he strives to focus on his credo: be innovative, stay creative, paint with light.
