Todd’s love of photography started as a young child when he began using his first instamatic to take pictures of his family’s many pets. He went on to contribute for his high school newspaper and yearbook. Technical study consists of 2 years of schooling at Hennepin Technical College. Todd’s keen eye for lighting, colors, and subject matter perspective are the driving forces behind his natural ability to capture these great photographs.
Todd’s primary focus in the area of photography revolves around landscapes and nature. His fascination with colors, shadows, and shapes empowers him to communicate an emotional connection through his photographs. He has traveled throughout the United States and the Caribbean. He also spent two weeks capturing Africa’s breathtaking sights in 2008 (Kenya and Egypt). His collection includes images that reflect his love of, and concern for the earth and its relationship to our environment.
Todd’s dream is to focus solely on photography as a career. While his resume most recently reflects work at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage since 2001, he is now at a point in his life where he can devote more time to his true passion. Todd and his family enjoy camping and spending time outdoors. His wife, Julie, their three sons, as well as other family members/friends, have been his greatest sources of encouragement and support.
“I have always loved photography because it gives me the chance to show others what I am truly seeing. I love to capture the emotion of the moment and then communicate that emotion in a photograph.” – Todd Jacobs

The inspiration for me to do photography comes from the love of art. It is the interdependence of wildlife, humanity, and the environment I try to show in my work.” – Todd Jacobs
