Food Photography – has always been one of my passions. I love the whole concept of making someone hungry though the use of photography.
Townsend Photographics has been photographing for many industrial clients for well over 20 years. Construction is in Terry’s blood, his father was a construction worker and brought Terry to many job sites all over the country throughout his childhood. Impressed with the BIG in construction. This picture was shot for Florida Power and Light for their annual report.
Nature is reason Terry started photography. Being in nature makes my senses come alive. Beauty is everywhere, we just have to open our eyes. This photograph was taken in the mountains of South Carolina.
Business is what makes the world go around. Money and making it seem to go hand in hand. We never have too much of it and it keeps us on our toes. Terry majored in business in college and he knows how to get the best out of people who work it. This picture was taken for IPC, the food distributor for Subway.
I live a block from the ocean, and rarely do you see waves as big as these on the Atlantic coast. I shot this before Hurricane Sandy. Pompano Beach, FL.
Townsend Photographics taking pictures for Corporate Burger King for over 30 years. During that time Terry photographed, POP’s, training, events, menu displays, publications, portraits. Terry’s other company TPI Multimedia produced a interactive DVD, ” The Perfect Fries,” utilizing stills, video and animation into a interactive training for their potato vendors. Recently I shot for FutureStep, and we photographed recruitment posters and business operations for Tim Horton, sister company to BK in Canada. We also photographed business operations at the corporate headquarters in Miami.
This photograph was taken at High Noon Resort in Lauderdale-by- Sea, FL. My client wanted to show off his location and how beautiful it was during a full moon.
Food can be fun. Bold colors make the image pop. Working with my client to create a image for his packaging. Working with a great food stylist is always a must. We act as a team to make your product look great.
Another Ryder shot concentration is now on the mechanic’s. Making a mechanic look good in a not so great looking environment. Terry knows how to get your shot done and move on to the next project.
Working with Ryder since 1984. Photographing the whole fleet in a white studio was not a easy task. To make it even harder was that the fleet was all white with chrome and of course windshields. Terry shot the fleet in Atlanta at the same studio that the Walking Dead is shot in. That in itself, was fun to do.

Living in South Florida is so much fun. If you want to see me smile, take me to the beach.

Trendsetting, is what all products want to do. The more there product is out there, the better. Social media is a way to promote your product. It’s almost a necessity. Bring your product to Terry, he’ll show you some new tricks.

Business is Business. You just have to love the people you surround yourself with.
Photographing Ryder’s fleet of trucks. This image is a composite of all the trucks photographed individually then put together in Photoshop. I used a Hasselblad 50mp multi-shot camera in a studio in Georgia (where Walking Dead is filmed). I wrapped the whole studio in white plastic including the ceiling, this made retouching easier. I photographed each truck in 3 angles, like the single shot on this page.
