Jerod Foster is a Texas-based magazine/editorial and travel photographer. His photographic efforts focus on editorial environmental portraiture and natural history, where he is able to devote visual resources to telling individual stories through the photographic medium and multimedia concerted projects. His background growing up in rural ranch country partially inspires him to seek these stories out among his surrounding cultural environment.
Jerod is also a photography instructor at Texas Tech University, as well as a doctoral student in media sociology. His emphasis on visual and cultural storytelling has resulted in the formation of both professional and academic relationships worldwide. He is a regular contributor to the Manfrotto School of Xcellence, and continues to provide educational resource to photographers through various other in-person and online outlets.
Jerod is also a partner with Sylinda Meinzer in Badlands Design and Production, a specialty book design and publishing firm and high-definition video production entity. The most current project he is working on with Badlands includes a conservation video effort in the Carmen mountain range in Coahuila, Mexico. Badlands recently published Inspiration, Texas Style, as well as Working Dogs of Texas, books comprised of photographs created by long-time mentor and friend, Wyman Meinzer, State Photographer of Texas.
