My name is Todd Sharp, and I am a camera junkie. There, I said it. There's no taking it back now. I've been this way for the better part of my life. Mostly, I'm in love with the cheaper cameras that many have forgotten.Read More

A little more than a month ago I had the opportunity to visit the Pina Zangaro design and warehouse facility in San Francisco. Michelle gave me a tour of their warehouse and manufacturing facility, as well as their design space and gallery. I even got a sneak peek at the new Mullen Brothers Imaging facilities that they're in the midst of launching. I cannot wait to have them print some large-format images for me!
In any case, I just got back in town and look what was waiting for me. I'm loving it.
The only negative of the visit was that they wouldn't let me move in. Seriously, go check out their warehouse. It's a dream space. I'm still a little bummed by that.
I got up at 5:30am yesterday morning and drove out to the desert with a friend. I think I need to spend more time photographing out there; exploring.
Walked down the peninsula tonight with a couple friends. A quick photo walk.
I was fortunate to be part of a great short film that was released last year called SHOW ME. It stars Michelle Gardner and Karl Herlinger, and was directed and edited by David Schneider. The screenplay was also by Karl Herlinger. It’s a very unique short film. It incorporates the essence of Karl’s ventriloquism, but he doesn’t do that Jeff Dunham over-the-top caricature crap. I’m talking real characters with real emotions — and way creepy. Michelle Gardner gives a great turn as Karl’s wife and partner, and well, a bit of the a turn of the knife, as you’ll see. She also made for a pretty great producing partner on the project. It was shot by Jon Aguirresarobe, with the support of Pawel Pogorzelski. They do incredible work together and I’d trust them on anything I shot. All in all, we were able to pull together an incredible group of people and I couldn’t be more proud of our results.
I’d worked with most of these people prior, through a film collective I was a part of, called Fewdio. But more on that later.
Take a look at SHOW ME and let me know your thoughts.
I’ve been working on processing more of the shoots I’ve been doing. This is a set from the past weekend. I met up with a group of skaters in one of the warehouse districts in Long Beach.
I saw this video a year ago and immediately sent it to several friends. It’s such a simple concept, executed so incredibly well. The music so perfectly matches the movements and the light. Jacob Sutton directed this piece. Yep, the photographer. His work is fairly amazing. Check it out.
This site is focused, first and foremost, on my photography – both my ever-expanding business, and my personal artistic pursuits – and after that, the creative endeavors that grow out of it.Read More
