Terry started his professional career as an accomplished hair stylist and platform artist with Salon Systems, the distributor for Aveda products in Wisconsin and Illinois.
After relocating to the Seattle, Washington area, Terry also studied oil painting under Ilona Rittler in Bellevue, and pursued his floral interests as he became a certified Master Gardenerthrough the Washington State University Extension Program in Snohomish County. This led Terry to become a Board Member of Edmonds in Bloom, a 501(c)3 organization active in community beautification in Edmonds, Washington from 2007 to 2010.
At Shoreline Community College, Terry studied photography under Mateo Zachai and Howard Hsu, who both lit his fire for a new craft and showed him a new way of conveying his artistic vision. His drawing instructor at SCC was Elizabeth Halfacre. Terry received his Associate of Arts & Sciences degree from Shoreline.
Starting with a (borrowed) Sony DSLR, Terry quickly discovered the joy of full frame digital photography with his first Canon product – the amazing Canon 5D Mark II. Using all the digital tools available today, Terry uses an Apple iMac, Aperture, Photoshop, and Canon imaging products to bring you the images you see on his website: www.thvisions.com
