At the heart of landscape photographer Todd McPhetridge’s art lies his appreciation and love for the simple, pure beauty of the natural world around us. Born in Marion, Virginia, he discovered the pleasure of trout fishing at an early age, and spent many hours absorbing the timeless beauty of the mountain streams he fished. At the age of twelve his family moved away from rural Virginia, and settled in the fast-paced urban milieu of Atlanta, Georgia. Here, it was not long before Todd felt a deep homesickness for the daily bond with nature that he had left behind.
At the age of sixteen he received his first camera, a gift from his mother, and that single act of a mother’s love led to the path of his life’s passion. Since that fateful day, Todd has been capturing nature and landscapes for over twenty years, always with his unique personal touch as a master artist with a gifted eye.
His many satisfied commercial customers include the Macromedia Studio MX Bible and Integrating Flash, Fireworks and Freehand f/x & Design, published by Coriolis and authored by Joyce H. Evans, and the periodicals Log Home Design Ideas, Manufacturing Engineering, Purchasing Today, Design News, Desktop Engineering, and MacWorld.
Todd resides today in Canton, Georgia. You will often find him in hiking boots, shouldering about thirty pounds of camera gear, as he explores the rivers, mountains, and woods of North Georgia, capturing for us and future generations, the stunning beauty that Mother Nature provides for all to enjoy.
