I didn't have much experience with photo shoots. Todd saw this as an opportunity rather than a problem. He set up a safe and comfortable environment to explore my own inner life. He is professional, kind and playful. A joy to work with! I highly recommend "discovering your own portrait" with Todd! - Olivier Renaud

Todd truly knew how to speak to me as an actor and human when we worked.

Taking headshots, in my opinion, tends to be a daunting, arduous, albeit necessary task. I was dreading this photo shoot, but with in the first few minutes of meeting Todd, he put me at ease. During the shoot, Todd helped me to relax more by assuring me that he wanted to capture ME, and not some idea of what I'm supposed to look. This was an invaluable part of my photo session with Todd; he never attempted to impose a particular 'look'. He worked with me and created images that genuinely reflected me... This photo shoot was a joy, and I feel that Todd truly honored and captured the authentic me. - Kristin Anderson

Todd was amazing! He made me feel really comfortable and helped me feel natural in front of the camera. It wasn't about posing or getting the right looks, but about getting to the heart of who I am. Also, his dog is the greatest. - Sarah Robotham

Todd made me feel like I was at home. I enjoyed every second I was with him. We sat and had ourselves a conversation beforehand and I didn't feel nervous at all. In fact, I'd never felt so comfortable making extended eye contact with somebody I had just met. I almost didn't want to leave. I fell so deeply in love with my photos, I felt like Narcissus. Todd created such a cozy environment for me, and his dog is such a sweetheart. I kind of miss it. - Dev Young
