Software engineer by profession and avid photographer for hobby and fun. I really love being inspired by the great and widely versatile works here on flickr. It gives me so many ideas of what to try next. I love portraiture and taking photos of others, so you'll likely see a lot of that in my photostream.

todd* is one of the reasons Flickr is much more than a website and more like a community. Not only are his photographs consistently excellent, but he also has taken the time to share his knowledge of photography with others like me who are considerably less experienced. My photography in general and my Flickr photostream specifically has improved as a result of him generously taking the time to explain some of his techniques. I thank him for having a generous spirit, the patience to respond to my queries, and his insightful constructive criticism.

Watching Todd's photography develop has been a true thrill. He has mastered the technical elements to produce elegant and beautiful images. But what makes them special is the manner in which he has brought his kind spirit and warmth to the way he looks at his subjects. Very special indeed.

Todd has some of the most amazing photographs. His portraits are incredible. He somehow manages to capture something very intimate about all his subjects. Although I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting him in person, I still feel I know him well enough that I can tell he's a wonderful man with a great heart.

Even though I hardly know Todd, I already know he has a big heart and is an amazing portrait photographer. I am constanty amazed by his composition and his ability to capture the spirit of his sitter. Truly outstanding.

It's almost impossible for anyone to use language to describe what occurs when the work of a truly skillful photographer is seen, since photography is a medium that works its magic without words and exists in a realm of visual "immediacy." There is a compact between the image and the viewer's eye that is made; a circuit is "closed" and a pictorial "electricity" flows between generative image and receptive viewer and sparks feeling that goes quite beyond language. Todd is an immensely gifted photographer and his photos never fail to spark that moment of sudden, immediate excitement, that wordless "ahhh" that triggers both "recognition" and wonder. I know of no one who evidences greater clarity of vision or better "truthfulness" in observation than he. In all his photos, but especially in his portraiture, Todd reaches for an absolute honesty that combines both compositional excellence and artistic integrity. That he manages -- again and again -- to succeed in grasping that honesty, is nothing short of astounding. There's depth and complexity to his work, and an unflinching (but sympathetic) eye he brings to each image. That's a rare gift to find in a world that often seems to prize illusion above reality, "spin" above substance; we may all be grateful that Todd is able to "reach" through the layers of personality and find that essential "true" emotion, capture it, and bring it to his photostream to share with the rest of us. I realize that I'm getting prolix here, but I cannot fail to note, in passing, how generous this man is in assisting other photographers with his technical knowledge and sharing his expertise in this medium with those of us (and here, I'm speaking of myself!) who are just beginning our explorations in photography. Thank you, Todd -- for being a wonderful friend, a wonderful photographer, and -- most especially -- a wonderful man!

I have to say this for everyone to see. It was a great experience working with Todd. He is an awsome photographer, and a wonderful individual. I hope to work with him again in the future.
