Terry Mercer

Photography has been a "hobby," interest, and passion to me since I was big enough to hold a camera (well over 40 years now). I learned how to develop film & print my own photos (both B&W and Color) when I was in junior high... and bought the first digital by Casio (a womping .5 megapixels) back in 1988, and I've gone through about 50 bodies since then. They've sure come a long way, and once I have all the glass I want, I hope to have a Mark IV one of these days. I've been shooting Sports Action for publications & print for the last decade, but Nature is my passion. I love motion, moments, and memories... and capture them when ever the opportunity presents itself.

Photography is a continuing education - as there are always unique challenges, new subjects that present different difficulties. Butterflies IN FLIGHT, Fish JUMPING OUT OF THE WATER, Birds Catching stuff to eat, dragon flies IN FLIGHT... and then there's the underwater stuff. Always interesting and challenging, I spend a lot of "clicks" playing - learning - experimenting and trying to capture those 'impossible shots' with what ever camera, lens, and circumstances are at hand.

Please don't copy my photos without my prior approval. I do not want to see or hear of my work being used on a web site, blog, or in any other means without my prior approval. Commercial use without my permission is STRICTLY PROHIBITED!
