With a background in cultural anthropology and creative writing, Jody Horton is more than just a great imager-maker; he’s a natural storyteller. In fact, after completing his studies, Horton moved to Costa Rica for two years to work for a travel magazine. Eventually, Jody began to home in on the talents from which he wanted to make a career and decided to focus on photography.
However, Horton never lost his love for telling the deeper story and his photography makes this clear. Based in Austin TX, Horton is always looking to tell the deeper story and his food photography often goes to the source of the food itself, capturing the passion of the people producing it and the more in-depth process that brings the farm to the table. A visual storyteller first and foremost, Horton often opts for diptychs and triptychs in his work, to tell a more well rounded story and create a context for the viewer.
Throughout his career thus far, Jody has had the opportunity to immerse himself with many types of people, such as chefs, hunters, oyster farmers, ranchers, and celebrities. In his own way, he’s living out his passion and inherent curiosity for the way in which people live.
Now a seasoned and well-respected professional photographer, Horton has found a new confidence in the last few years and is beginning to embrace working in motion. Ever becoming more the director, Jody provides clients with a consistent and visually striking aesthetic from stills to motion. He can do it all, soup to nuts, and given how frequently he’s been working as of late, clients clearly appreciate what he’s bringing to the table.
