Chris Todd
Chris hales from the great state of Wisconsin, where he graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Business Administration in both Accounting and Finance.

After spending a number of years working as an Internal Auditor for a large manufacturing company, Chris decided to change careers to something more personally satisfying. He enrolled in photography school for the lone reason of pursuing something that he enjoyed doing, while also performing accounting and consulting work for a handful of small businesses.

To Chris, Phlearn represents an opportunity to merge his two worlds while providing an amazing resource to the photographic community. Chris first met Aaron a couple years back through one of Aaron's live online classes, and it was that class that got Chris so excited about photography that he decided to enroll in school for it.
Zach Spinner
I'm a photographer residing in Chicago, IL. Born and raised in Wisconsin, I became interested in art at an early age and enrolled in a photography class during my sophomore year in high school. Photography stuck with me and has continued to do so for the past five years.

When not taking pictures and working at Phlearn, I can be found enjoying hip hop, tennis, mexican food, and warm weather (three months out of the year). I hope to share the humble amount of knowledge I've learned along the way in hopes that it will inspire a few young photographers like myself.
