Hello and welcome to my site! My name is John Todd and I am an amateur photographer and over enthusiastic Photoshop and Lightroom user. While I’m not a full-time professional photographer I did major in commercial photography but after school the idea of being a ski bum sounded better than knocking around a studio. Instead of pursuing a career in photography I have been in the winter sports industry for the past 30 + years where I am a product manager at Wintersteiger were among other responsibilities I teach ski and snowboard tuning across North America. Even though photography was not my chosen profession I am still an internationally published and award-winning photographer that pushes my abilities every time I go out to shoot. Because of my love of photography I always continued my education by attending countless seminars on technique and post processing. I am a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (now KelbyOne) and teach Photoshop and Lightroom classes locally to groups and individuals. I am the organizer of the Gateway Digital Photography Group and started a smaller group that likes to sit around and drink margaritas and talk Photoshop. I pride myself on continually pushing my processing techniques and trying to define a style that is my own. Please have a look around my site, I hope you enjoy it, and I appreciate you being here!
