Back in June Rocks Off brought you Houston's ten best music photographers, as selected by a small panel of insiders and professionals. Now we'd like you readers to choose the best. Before voting opens, though, here's a little more about our finalists, in alphabetical order -- and a lot more of their spectacular photography. Best of luck to all ten.
Rocks Off: Tell us a little more about yourself.

Todd Spoth: I am a full-time commercial and editorial photographer based here in Houston. I was born in Galveston and grew up in Paris, France, before settling back in the Clear Lake area. I graduated from the University of Houston in 2006 with degrees in both Political Science and Psychology before ditching the idea of law school for something a little more creative.
I started out with internships with the Houston Astros, Colorado Springs Gazette, and Patuxent Publishing in Baltimore, Md. before moving back in Houston as an independent freelancer. Although I shoot for several great editorial clients such as ESPN the Magazine, Billboard and Complex, my focus in recent years has been on commercial and advertising work.
I am currently working on an on-going photo essay of hip-hop in Houston and beyond. High school photography was the only class I ever failed. @toddspoth on Twitter and IG and Ello and everything else.More »
