BIO

Jodi Champagne has had a passion for the arts from a very young age. Even as a child, Jodi’s artistic interest centered on the eyes and character of a person. That interest has not wavered in several decades, although instead of a pencil, she uses a camera.

Jodi’s photography career began as a portrait, wedding and sports photographer. She quickly discovered her true passion in documentary and street photography, where her goal is to tell a story, raise awareness and make a difference. She has traveled world wide to capture humanity with compassion and heart.

Jodi’s award-winning work has been featured in exhibitions in the U.S., Europe and Latin America. Her photographs have been widely published in books, magazines, and used for editorial and commercial work. Jodi’s most recent accomplishments include publishing three books, which are the first of it’s kind called “Diminishing Generations” and a nationally recognized documentary book in called “Courage Under Wraps”. As well as being published in Sports Illustrated and became a member of Getty Images. She now lives and works from Palmdale, California.
