Depth of Field: Jerod Foster

Jerod Foster is an editorial and natural history photographer based out of Lubbock, Texas, as well as a photography instructor at Texas Tech University. His work focuses on features and environmental portraits for magazines, books, and commercial purposes. Jerod contributes to the Manfrotto School of Xcellence, an educational resource for amateurs and professionals alike. He is also a partner and editor for Badlands Design and Production, a publishing house that focuses on high-end coffee table photography books. I met Jerod online like so many of my friends these days. Then one day I get an email from him that he wants to interview me. Wait ! – That is my line. I am the one who does the interviewing. Well, it turned out he was writing a book for our good friends at Peachpit/New Riders entitled “Storyteller: A photographer’s Guide to Developing Themes and Creating Stories with Pictures“. After the interview, which ended up in the book, by the way, I realized we had a lot to talk about. So we decided to continue with our conversation here.
