I’m an experienced photographer having done a wide variety of photography over the span of my 20 year career. As both a photojournalist and commercial photographer I have captured assignments including portraits of state dignitaries and top business executives and have worked in extreme situations ranging from shooting portraits while flying upside down in an open cockpit bi-plane to capturing a 48hr (non-stop) African tribal circumcision.
I strongly believe a key to my success has much to do with my unusual childhood. I grew up sailing through the South Pacific and Caribbean, living in Mexico, and traveling Europe. Along the way I befriended people from all walks of life and circumstances. I have been a long time member of the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Mountain Search and Rescue team which has also taught me how to manage stressful situations calmly and still get the job done.
The wide variety of opportunities I've been provided throughout my life have enabled me to develop a keen sense of people and their personalities. I strongly believe this has been key to putting my subjects at ease and allowing them to enjoy the photography experience.
I welcome the opportunity to work with you!

Here are some quotes from a few folks I have worked with:
"I worked closely with Todd over the past several years on a variety of projects. Most specifically, Todd is the lead photographer I always seek out to capture images of the Law Firm Leaders Forum I host every year. His performance is consistently outstanding in this often challenging role."
Ralph Baxter Chairman & CEO Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliff, LLP
“I have worked with Todd both professionally and in search and rescue for the past several years. Todd’s strong people skills combined with his artistic sense set the stage for high quality portrait photography. His ability to make people feel at ease works well in both these environments and makes his work exceptional. ”
