A Little Something
About Todd L Church
I have gravitated toward photography my entire life. My Grandfather was a hobbyist photographer and my older brother build a darkroom in grandpa's basement.
My goal was to become an artist, however, so I took several drawing, painting, cartooning, and graphic design courses through Lansing Community College, as well as local arts programs but photography always worked it's way into my life somehow. My first job after high school was at Meijer where I worked in the photo department where I met local photo enthusiasts and l loved chatting with them about photography. I bought my first camera in the early 1990's and traveled to the polar bear capital of the world (Churchill, Manitoba) where I daydreamed of becoming a National Geographic photographer. I later met a real Nat. Geo. photographer named Bruce Dale who wrote a nice article in Digital Photography magazine where he mentioned me by name.
I took a photojournalism class at Michigan State University in 2006 where I was inspired to become a full-time photographer. Since then I have photographed weddings, models, real-estate, senior photos, families, presidential campaign events and volunteered for several years at the Traverse City Film Festival.
Photography has consumed my life for several years. Capturing precious moments of life that will live forever is a goal that drives me. Each session is as unique because the moments are unique. Let me capture the unique moments in your life as we go through life together.
