     Todd Selby is a portrait, interiors, and fashion photographer and illustrator. His project The Selby offers an insider’s view of creative individuals in their personal spaces with an artist's eye for detail.

    The Selby began in June 2008 as a website,  www.theselby.com, where Todd posted photo shoots he did of his friends in their homes. Requests quickly began coming in daily from viewers all over the world who wanted their homes to be featured on the site. The Selby’s website became so influencial —with up to 95,000 unique visitors daily—that within months, top companies from around the world began asking to collaborate.

    These joint projects have included collaborations with Louis Vuitton, Hennessy, FENDI, a large ad campaign and web project with Nike 6.0,  a solo show at colette, an international ad campaign for Habitat, work for the New York Times T Magazine, and frequent contributions to Vogue Paris and Architectural Digest France.

    Todd’s first book, The Selby is In Your Place , was released in May 2010 by Abrams followed by his 2nd book The Edible Selby released in 2012, in collaboration with NYTimes T Magazine in which he photographs the most creative and interesting people in food around the world. The third book in the ‘Selby’ series, Fashionable Selby, will be released in March 2014 and will explore the kaleidoscopic world of fashion, featuring profiles of today’s most interesting designers, stylists, haberdashers, models, shoemakers, and more.

    Before working on this project full time Todd worked as a translator and Tijuana tour guide to the International Brotherhood of Machinists, a researcher into the California strawberry industry, a Costa Rican cartographer, a consultant on political corruption to a Mexican Senator, an art director at a venture capital firm, an exotic flower wholesaler, a Japanese clothing designer, and a vermicomposting entrepreneur.

    Todd currently lives in New York City. His pastimes include eating four square meals a day, tying his shoes, planning vacations, breaking his computers, and working on his tan.

    • Today is my 40th birthday. It's pretty strange because I can still clearly remember being a kid and thinking that 20 was basically it. Anyways I was just putting baby Ella to sleep and I asked her what she got me for my birthday. She looked up at me and said "Happy". Just wanted to share that story and send love out to all of you.

    • Back when I was a wee Selby I wanted two things. 1) to go to outer space and 2) a gold DeLorean . Now that I’m an older Selby I am too scared of that thing that spins you around really fast so space is out of the question. 🚀☀️☄️🏎🚀
    • Ella got a new castle! Complete with dada's art gallery wallpaper inside and a mini jungle mural on the outside. 🤗🤗🤗

    • I hand painted some sexy Selby Star Maps and hit the strip to make a little 💰 . It didn’t really work out that way, but sometimes you just got to roll the dice. There was some interest from one gentleman in a purchase, but I think he was just pretending to be interested so I would buy his fire 🔥 mix cd. Maybe next time I will get my own fire mix cds and cruise your hood. Check out the bts video on the last slide of the gallery if u got the time.
