Todd Spoth is a Houston based music and entertainment photographer who is specialized covering Hip Hop music. Most of the interviews so far covered the Rock and Heavy Metal genre and therefore I thought why not interview a Hip Hop photographer.
Todds client list includes brands such as Canon, Elle Magazine, Forbes, Fox Sports, NFL, Red Bull, The New York Times and he serves on the board of directors for the American Society of Media Photographers. So, this guy knows what he is talking about when it comes down to photography.
