Contributor Limelight: Niels Jensen

Niels Jensen joined SLUG in June of 2015. Since then, he has helped enrich the magazine with his knowledge of and appetite for the local skate scene. He recognizes SLUG’s penchant for coverage of lesser-known artists and musicians locally, and has contributed to this effort by finding local skaters who rip for photos and features. On page 34, Jensen has captured skater Shylio Sweat’s skill and the sense of urgency for him to stick the trick with his accompanying narrative. He also boasts a versatile photography skillset alongside his talent for shooting skate photos for SLUG. Jensen has also been featured in Arkade and recently has been revisiting his roots in photography via personal projects, wherein he has been “working with a variety of cameras and formats to keep things fresh.” With all his talent, we love having Niels on team SLUG!
