Jen Dainer is a Brisbane based photographer and videographer. While she specialises in taking photos in dangerous places – such as hanging out of helicopters! – she is also great at getting reluctant victims clients to enjoy the whole photography experience. I should know, she has shot me three times.

Jen and I met at a networking event about ten years ago and have been firm friends ever since. This conversation involves a lot of laughter after a delicious meal potato curry cooked by moi.

When not in the potato section of her local greengrocer, you will find Jen at Industrial Photography & Video.

You can connect with Jen on LinkedIn and check out some of her photos and videos on Instagram.
