In the early 2000s, Jen developed a surprising passion for photography. She decided to pursue a career as a photographer specializing in live music photography. With a foundation in music photography, Jen found she also enjoys taking pictures of many kinds of people, places she has traveled, and action sports (especially water sports).
Viewing the world through a camera lens, Jen has learned that every photo has a story, and the perfect photo does in fact speak a thousand words. However, each photo can be seen through multiple interpretations depending on the individual. Through her experience in photography, Jen created Beyond PhotoJENic, a project chronicling life caught on camera put on display through New Media avenues. With the influence of New Media and traditional media, people have the choice to evaluate deeper and participate on subjects that interest them, and even ones they have yet to discover. As for Jen, she aspires to share her visions and expertise in New Media technology with others through Beyond PhotoJENic’s mission: “Inspiring Your Next Move.”
