Todd Hido: Wish You Were Here

by

Just because you didn’t get to go to that awesome photography conference doesn’t mean that you can’t learn something from the pros! Occasionally, we’ll be featuring a recommended photography lecture on Phototuts+.

This week you'll get a look into the career path of Todd Hido, a San Francisco Bay Area-based artist. While Hido does portraiture and architecture photography, his most recent work typically focuses on the America landscape: photographing streets and subdivisions, especially at night.

Visit Todd Hido's website here to see more of his images, and find a list of his photography books on his Wikipedia page here.
