June Jacobsen has been creating Gallery Wall Portraits for her clients since the early 1980's. She won the honor of Top Portrait Photographer for four consecutive years in the Professional Photographers of Greater New York. Working towards the Master Photographer Degree, June earned numerous state and national awards in the Professional Photographers of America. Her articles on portraiture have been published worldwide.
June won the 2011 National Geographic Expedition Moments Photo Contest with an image from the High Arctic. The prize was a trip for two to Bhutan in the Himalaya Mountains. She asked for a change and traveled to the Galapagos Islands on the National Geographic Endeavor ship for a week with her daughter.
Currently June teaches photography workshops at the studio, from beginner digital to advanced portraiture as well as private tuition. Information on upcoming classes can be found on the blog.
A fascination with polar regions has taken June to the ends of the earth, but she visits her homeland, Norway, most often. She lives and works on Long Island and her most recent trips were to Kenya, Africa (2013), Iceland and Norway (2014), and Baja Sur, Mexico (2015).
