Terry Schmidbauer

T.L. Schmidbauer graduated from an Art School in Wisconsin in 1986. He married his art school sweetheart and has been a professional, working artist ever since. He’s been an art director at a toy company, a Commercial Illustrator on Michigan Ave in Chicago, and for the last twenty years has worked in the software entertainment industry as a 3D Artist.

As a Photographer, his current direction leans toward street photography. The timeless quality of street photography has always been a perfect platform from which his concepts begin. He composes with an abstract sensibility that focus on gesture and light. Looking for visual intrigue, he captures what instinctively catches his eye while letting the personality of the subject come out naturally. In the editing phase, he tends to let the image come together on its own with little intention to change the initial character of the concept. He enjoys the process of watching something unfold with what seems like a life of its own.

T.L. Schmidbauer is currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife of twenty years and two small dogs.
