ToddStar Photography

ToddStar Photography ToddStar - that's me... just a rocking accountant who had dreams of being a rockstar. Thanks to a few online outlets, I get to do the next best thing to rocking the globe - I get to take pictures of the lucky ones that do.

I get to shoot and hang with not only some of my friends and idols, but some of the coolest people around today. You will find them on my website in the Music Gallery, listed alphabetically. To see a random sampling of the most popular recently viewed photos, check the slideshow on my website. If you like what you see, please let me know - [email protected] See ya in The 'Pit!!!

Mission: To lift and amend a saying a friend had in his business establishment: "Good Photography isn't cheap and cheap photography isn't good."
