During the interview, Todd ( discusses exactly what it takes to capture gorgeous sports photographs.

For example, Todd has two words when it comes to creating the perfect image: simple and clean. "I am always looking for these two things," he says. "This is how I get the essence of my image to come out right away, and make my subject pop right out of the frame."
