With a bachelor’s degree and graduate certificate in Art/ Photography, Jodi’s graduate photo project ‘Our Other Homeless’ highlighted the plight of abandoned cats and dogs, euthanised in the thousands by shelters when homes can’t be found. Her photographs were incorporated in books and magazines and exhibited from coast to coast. Jodi has photographically recorded adventures, people, places and animals across Africa, spanning the continent and capturing an array of incredible animals including elephants and cheetahs. For the past 7 years, she has focused on marine species of the Monterey Bay in California, and for the last 15 seasons Jodi has been swimming with and photographing the North Atlantic humpback whales in the warm waters of the Silver Bank Marine Mammal Sanctuary, Dominican Republic, where she also helps gather fluke ID photos for research. This non-invasive data collection helps scientists to discover where whales spend their time. Jodi has also spent time swimming with and photographing humpback whales in Tonga.
