One Photographer...one incredible view of the world in which we live.

Todd Shaak utilizes his gift of inner vision to capture and display a view of the world that might otherwise be taken for granted. In so doing, he transmits all of the emotion, eloquence, and nuance of design that make each of his subjects unique. Through his understanding of light and this artistic ability, he is able to capture a beauty and definition that can be found only in the product of one who has mastery of his craft.

"If I can capture an image that makes someone laugh, cry, reflect, imagine - even put their arm around a friend - then I have made a connection on some universal level. That response affords me an ability to share in an expression of emotion.." – Todd Shaak

Todd,
Great job here. You have a unique eye for artistically capturing what other people would see as ugly, junky, or trashed. You have turned it into beautiful art work. Keep up the vision!
Scott
