Resort Photography

If you travel a lot you want to be comfortable.  If you are a hotel owner, you want pictures of your images to be great and to be true to what the place truly looks like.  These pictures were taken at the resort, High Noon, Lauderdale-by-Sea.

It’s Not All About Driving

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.

Ryder 5 Truck Line-Up

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.
