Hi, I’m Jody Daunton.

A freelance creative director & photographer, specialising in environmental portraiture, travel & lifestyle photography.

My photographic practice focuses on environmental portraiture and visual storytelling for both editorial and commercial clients. I am inspired by those who look to live closer to nature, and my approach to image making looks to capture authentic moments, of real people and their interesting lives.

When I’m not creating content for clients, I am most often found out on assignment exploring and documenting local and foreign lands and cultures for Another Escape.

In 2012, I teamed up with my partner, Rachel Taylor (Co-founder and editor), to create Another Escape, an outdoor lifestyle, creative culture and sustainable living journal that celebrates the stories of passionate people inspired by nature. We look to capture window’s into the worlds of those who share in our values and whom live close to nature and look to protect it.

My role at Another Escape is creative director, where I work alongside Rachel, and our network of international creatives to create and commission immersive stories with an emphasis on strong visual storytelling.
