Born and bred on the East Coast of Aus­tralia at Coffs Har­bour in New South Wales, Todd grew up with pho­tog­ra­phy all around him. His fa­ther, famed surf pho­tog­ra­pher Bob Weeks, ded­i­cated nearly a decade to cap­tur­ing the coun­try’s surf cul­ture in the ’60s. For Todd, who’s now based in Ar­row­town, New Zealand’s south­ern land­scapes are his love and pas­sion. From the re­gion’s spec­tac­u­lar South­ern Lakes to its snow-capped peaks, Todd ap­proaches each set­ting with his unique pho­to­graphic style. “I like to cap­ture photos that are not ‘post­card’ shots but photos that make peo­ple think about the com­po­si­tion more than the lo­ca­tion,” he ex­plains. To cap­ture this im­age of Lake Gunn, Todd left home at dawn to ar­rive in the early morn­ing while there were still no tourists around. Fol­low­ing a track that went down to the edge of Lake Gunn fac­ing to the south, he cap­tured 12 ver­ti­cal im­ages hand­held, which he stitched to­gether in Lightroom to pro­duce the spec­tac­u­lar shot.
