Todd Glaser is a San Diego-born photographer, surfer, and waterman. A SURFER Magazine Staff Photographer since 2008, Glaser is prolific for his young age, earning more than a dozen covers during his tenure at the magazine. Equally talented shooting land, water, and lifestyle photography, his work has also appeared in The New York Times, Outside, Rolling Stone, Men’s Health, GQ and the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, in Washington DC. He recently released his first book titled Proximity: a 296 page hardbound color book documenting the 8 of the worlds best surfers traveling to new waves and capturing their relationships. When he isn’t chasing swells, treading water shooting in the heat of the tropics or cold of the arctic, or capturing images of the first wave ever ridden at Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch, Glaser can be found riding waves around town and enjoying the company of his wife, Jenna.
