STUFF (NEW ZEALAND) -- But photography is not the only award-winning aspect of his life, as Bulgarian-born Todorov is also a lauded concert violinist and teaches Music at the San Francisco State University in the U.S.

He said his love for photography came from yet another passion of his — flying planes.

“Music has a lot to do with structure and composition, colours and patterns, moods and characters — when I am looking at a photo, I am thinking about the same things,” Todorov says. “The aesthetics of an image is particularly important to me.”
