“One thing that struck me early is that you don’t put into a photograph what’s going to come out. Or, vice versa, what comes out is not what you put in.”
Todd Parnell is an Erotic Art Photographer from Northern Ohio who specializes in Fetish, Erotica and Portraiture. His images often inspire - above the neck and below the belt, a rare combination in the art world today. Traveling extensively and often between Northern Ohio and Metro Detroit, Mr. Parnell's experience and reputation as a professional with a unique perspective on the world who brings light and energy into every shoot is without question; many of the models he shoots being returning models.
Mr. Parnell is a member of both DEAC (Detroit Erotic Arts Collaborative) and Collingwood Art Center, whose group shoots provide new and upcoming models and photographers the rare opportunity to meet in one place for a day or two, shooting together, offering everyone a chance to spread their wings in a safe and supportive environment. This ideology is one Mr. Parnell holds dear to his heart, as community has always been a focus in his life, whether at work, at home, and as an ordained Minister and Wedding Officiant.
