📸 About Jacob Lund Photography: 
Jacob Lund Photography specialises in the production of premium lifestyle photography. We strive to challenge the way we shoot as well as the themes and environments we create our content in. Our main focus is to capture top of the line content that is relevant in our present world and is adapted to consistently meet online trends and the demand of our buyers. We do most of our productions in-house and license the content for stock libraries. Besides that we do a few bespoke shoots for clients every year.


💭 What is it like working with us?
We are an ambitious bunch of creatives doing this because we can - not because we have to. We strive to do everything a little better every day, and we love pushing our boundaries to get better and explore new opportunities.

We offer a very ‘2024’ style work environment - one where flexibility is key and with the expectation that people are self-motivated and can manage their own time and work output. You will be supported by people who celebrate diversity and a collaborative workplace culture.
