Terry Thompson

"I always aim to reveal something beyond the obvious. Each photo emerges as an original work of art that catches the viewer by surprise. "

Thompson is an award-winning photographer whose continuing fascination with fine art panoramic landscapes stems from always seeking the heart of a scene as expressed in shape, color, and movement.

Capturing panoramas has become more sophisticated with digital technology, allowing Thompson to assemble multiple frames of moving subjects, such as breaking waves, into images six-feet long or more. For Thompson, hand-holding a camera and then painstakingly stitching the images together is a rewarding process.

Thompson worked with Al Giddings in the 1980s, producing underwater films and learning to create powerful artistic imagery. Today, Thompson brings this trained eye to his still photography, specializing in the panoramic format. He is self-taught and maintains control of his work from capture to print in a never-ending quest to push creative boundaries.
