Jody is no stranger to adventure. As an award-winning photographer, she’s explored the wildest frontiers of our planet. Over the span of a decade, she twice sailed around the world on kiteboarding, sailing and surfing expeditions. She has traveled to over ninety countries in search of the unknown.

Why Jody switched to Z by HP

What can you now do on a Z that you couldn't do before?
JM: I’m always trying to find new ways to improve my workflow. For a long time, I struggled with having the confidence in a computer that’s durable and versatile enough for me to take into the field. When I met with the HP team and they explained to me the rigorous testing they put their products through, I became really excited to test them out. I finally feel like I’ve found a computer that I can rely on, whether I’m way off the beaten path or in my home office.

What helps push your work further?
JM: Stepping off the beaten path in pursuit of documenting stories that inspire people to push the boundaries of their comfort zones and fight for positive change in the world. That’s what inspires me and keeps motivating me to do better work.

What is your favorite Z feature?
JM: My favorite feature or tool is the pen on the ZBook X2. Honestly, it feels a lot like when I used to take art classes in school. The pen is like a paintbrush that allows me to see and edit details like I never have before. Now, editing my images has become this interactive experience that inspires me to create and share with the world.

Who is someone that inspires you and why?
JM: There are so many people that inspire me. Anyone who has the courage to follow their passion or curiosity in life inspires me, but if I had to name just one, it would be my brother. He lives life on his own terms. A very simple, rewarding life. He doesn’t give in to societal pressures. He is the most interesting, confident, hardworking, giving, self-fulfilled person that I have ever met and it’s hard not to be incredibly inspired by that.

GMUNK is a visionary, whose creativity and innovation spans multiple platforms. He has established himself as one of the top visual and design directors in the world. Utilizing a fusion of science-fiction themes, psychedelic palettes, and practical in-camera effects, his signature style is enigmatic, atmospheric, and metaphysical – much like Munky himself.

WHY GMUNK SWITCHED TO Z BY HP:

What can you do on Z that you couldn’t do before?
I’m using the Z to create very computationally intensive dynamics simulations that I wasn’t able to do before – it’s very liberating.

What is the next thing you want to learn or experiment with Z?
Large Format Printing, 3D Printing, and continuing to experiment with Simulation Art.

What helps push your work further?
Having no fear to be uncomfortable and embracing the desire to be constantly learning, constantly growing as a creative.
