Member Spotlight: Jennifer Shin

Hi, I'm Jen, and I work in advertising. I love exploring through new cities and photographing them all along the way.

What drew you to photography?

I love being able to capture life's still moments. Since middle school, I've always been known to have a camera in hand to snap each memory and event with my friends and family. It also allows me to revisit fond memories, from inspiring vacations to even something as simple as a memorable coffee date with a good friend.


What advice do you have for someone trying to build their Instagram presence?

Have fun with it! Don't get wrapped up in getting the perfect shot or the moments will pass you by. Don't do the same things that everyone else is doing; find and follow your own style!

Where are your favorite places to eat in NYC?

Oh god, this is a hard one. I love Italian food—my favorites are Rubirosa, Maialino, and Barbuto. And I can't forget Saigon Shack, my go-to spot when I was a student at NYU. The list goes on and on!


What does a typical day look like for you?

A typical work day: grab coffee at Birch Coffee, work, [the occasional] happy hour or city event, eat, sleep, and repeat!

Thanks Jennifer! You can find her on Instagram at @jennifshin.
