Kim Jenssen is a professional landscape and travel photographer, based in the beautiful island Senja in northern Norway.
Kim got his first camera back in 2012, not really sure of what to do. But he slowly started learning more about creating photos and photography, and today he is a full time landscape photographer traveling around the world taking the most beautiful photo after the other.
He loves exploring the world with his camera, and living in the northern parts of Norway makes him constantly surrounded by amazing nature. So it's not a surprise that you will most likely find him up in the mountains, next to huge ice bergs or underneath a beautiful sky full of stars and Northern lights, regardless of the weather.
KIM'S TOP 3 SIGMA LENSES
- This is for sure my most used lens for both landscape and the hunt for northern lights. It has an impressive sharpness and build quality.
I work a lot in the Nordic climate, which can range from minus 30 degrees to plus 20, in sun, rain and snow.
That's when I realize how important it is with good products, and the SIGMA 14-24mm F2.8 is a lens that I can easily recommend.
- If I would take only one lens with me on my trip, it would be this one. It is shartp, weatherproof and so useful thanks to its zoom range. This lens was used a lot during my visit to Greenland, where I was dependent on being able to vary the focal length often due to the landscape we were in. It also has an optical stabilizer that allows me to take photos handheld with longer shutter speed, and that's an advantage if you don't have access to a tripod. A unique lens that everyone should have in their backpack.
- This is my main lens for wildlife, but is also used a lot for landscape. The unique variation I have from 60 to 600mm gives me a larger working range, especially when I'm in a photo shed, but also when I work in landscapes.
If you use the zoom actively in landscapes, you will quickly discover how good it is to have this variation. Some of my landscape photos from Finland are shot with this lens, and also all of my wildlife photos.
