Jacobsen is very personable, professional, and has a very creative eye. I’ve also seen him lead new models to be comfortable working in front of the camera! I wish I could give 6 stars because he’s just that good at his craft!

Jacobsen is a fabulous photographer! I met him a couple of years ago. He and his organization, Feed the Masses,(a culinary training, he has for youth) catered my first Visibly Invisible event in 2018. He is also the mastermind behind the Mask photo project I was blessed to be apart over the weekend. He provided all the models and the photography and I provided the masks and clothing it was a win win for the both of us. One thing that I observed with working with him is not only is he a photographer and a chef but he has a genuine passion to help our youth. The majority of the models were youth from the community who were eager to model. This allows them an opportunity to model an build their modeling portfolio, this may not may not be a favored career choice or path for some but at least it is giving the youth an alternative to be put doing negative stuff. The opportunity Jacobsen gives them is exposure, build their confidence and giving them something positive to do. I look forward to many more shoots with him!

I’m a new model to the PDX scene originally from Seattle, WA. Jacobsen Valentine was the first photographer I worked with in the area and boy was he welcoming. He is prompt, professional, creative, and extremely outgoing. I’d recommended working with him if you’re looking for some crisp headshots for your portfolio, creative work, or even family photos. Thanks JV!
