I can sum Terry up in one word...integrity. Integrity for his art, in how he applies his technical skills and knowledge, in his file delivery... and in his exuberance! In over twenty-five years, Terry has never disappointed, most likely due to how high he sets his own standards, and also in his commitment to surpass our expectations.

Terry was the very first photographer I had ever worked with when I hired him for a photo shoot in 1991. I was right out of school. The project was an annual report for a very high-profile client. The shoot went great. The annual report turned out really well. And, the very high-profile client LOST Terry’s entire hand-printed portfolio. I was the one who had to call Terry and break the news that somehow his entire book had simply vanished. He took the news surprising well. At least he was calm while I had him on the phone. Anyway, for some reason, he agreed to work with me again. And again. And again.
During our 26 years of advertising and design projects, we have chased sunlight around my living room, captured students, patients, hockey pucks and dust. No matter what he was shooting, never once was I ever worried that he wouldn’t generate an amazing array of imagery.
Terry is detailed, focused, caring, funny, fast, and has the best eye I have ever encountered. I swear, he sees in slow motion the way he finds a split second and saves it for all time. He always over-delivers. He’s amazing with people, but he can shoot anything.
And, he didn’t kill me back in 1991.
