Valerie Jardin is a photographer, educator, podcaster, writer, and official Fujifilm X-Photographer.
Her passion for humankind drives her to shoot mostly street photography. She thrives on searching and waiting for just the right moment when a story unfolds in a single frame. She also looks to shoot the extraordinary in the ordinary—it's in the details. She favors her FujiX100T for almost all her work, and is honored to be an official X-Photographer for Fujifilm USA. Valerie's work has been showcased in galleries in the United States and in Europe. Teaching is her opportunity to share her passion and skills with others while leading photography workshops. She also gives talks and presentations at photo conferences and writes articles on photography for Australian-based dPS magazine and other publications. Born and raised in France, Valerie currently lives in Minnesota.
