From paragliding over the Himalayas to train hopping across Canada with a professional thief and sailing around the world on a catamaran — twice — Jody MacDonald has chased her passion for adventure to over 100 countries. The Ottawa–born photographer spent her childhood traveling across the globe from her adopted home in Saudi Arabia, quickly discovering the magic of different cultures and sparking her sense of wanderlust. Named one of the ‘25 Most Adventurous Women in the Past 25 Years’ by Men’s Journal in 2017, her award-winning work has seen her shoot campaigns for Disney, HP, Leica, and Red Bull, and published in theNational Geographic, BBC, Business Insider, and Outside Magazine.
