A father and his sons caked head to toe in mud. A mother and daughter, hands clasped, strolling through the park. A man riding his motorcycle into the sunset.

Combining posed and candid images, Todd photographs everyone from families and couples to fashion models and rock musicians. To preserve each client’s favorite pictures, he offers prints with glossy or metallic finishes, as well as canvas prints up to 32”x48” in size.
