In an ideal world we could all live long enough lives to realize all of the things that interest us fully” –Jody Horton

Show Notes:
This week on CRAFT-ish, Vickie talks with Jody Horton about his journey from struggling documentarian to James Beard Award-winning and internationally recognized Food & Lifestyle photographer, how he applies his degree in Anthropology to his work, and his views on infusing creativity into his young sons’ lives.
Originally from Charleston, SC, Jody has called Austin, TX home for more than 10 years.  Prior to refocusing on photography a few years ago he worked as a writer and editor and as a one-man documentary film production company that had no financial future whatsoever.  He studied English (BA) and Ethnology (MA) and would go back to school to study architecture if the human lifespan was longer. His interest in culture led him to travel extensively and to live in Southeast Asia and Costa Rica, but he is glad now to live in the middle of the most badass state in the country.

For his lifelong love of them, and to honor his SC roots, Jody aspires to be the world’s premier oyster photographer.
