Through the Lens

Follow the swell with Todd Glaser



Published:

Of the few hundred surf photographers in the world, only a handful are published regularly—and San Diegan Todd Glaser, 27, is one of them. As a staff photographer at Surfer, he’ll swim as many as 11 hours in a day, wearing fins and up to $10,000 worth of camera equipment on a leash around his wrist. He’s traveled to more than a dozen countries just this year, chasing swells with some of the world’s best surfers. As for glory? Glaser points the focus away. He’s just super stoked to be here.
