Todd Glaser: Capturing Life Through the Lens

In this episode of the podcast, I had the privilege of chatting with the talented photographer Todd Glaser. Todd has built a career capturing some of the most iconic moments in surf photography, but in this conversation, we touched on much more than just that.

We talked about how Todd approaches his portrait photography, the importance of treating people around you kindly, and the impact that people like Kelly Slater have had on his life. We also dove into photo licensing, oversaturation of particular images, and what it was like to photograph the first-ever session at Kelly’s Wave Pool.

One of the most interesting parts of our conversation was when Todd shared his crazy travel journeys he’s had in the past. He’s been to some of the most remote places on earth, and hearing his stories was truly eye-opening.

Throughout the conversation, it was clear that Todd is a photographer who truly loves his craft. His passion for capturing life through the lens was palpable, and it was inspiring to hear him talk about the creative process.

We also discussed Todd’s career and how he has managed to build a successful business as a photographer. He shared his thoughts on the importance of networking, the value of building relationships with clients, and how to navigate the ever-changing landscape of the photography industry.

One topic we spent some time on was photo pricing, and Todd offered some valuable insights on how to price photography prints. He stressed the importance of understanding the value of your work and knowing what the market will bear. He also talked about the importance of having a solid business plan and being willing to adapt as the market changes.

Overall, this was an incredible conversation with a truly talented photographer. Todd Glaser is someone who has dedicated his life to capturing the beauty of the world around us, and his insights into the creative process and the business of photography were truly invaluable.

If you’re a fan of surf photography, or just photography in general, I highly recommend giving this episode a listen. Todd is a true artist, and his passion and dedication to his craft is truly inspiring.

And if you’re ever in need of some inspiration, just take a look at Todd’s work. His images capture the essence of life in a way that is both beautiful and inspiring.
