About Me

Old photo of myself

Hi, I am Terry Breedlove I live in the beautiful and remote farthest west reaches in the united states here on the Olympic peninsula. This place I call home is a remote rain forest land full of Old growth Cedars and lots of free space to explore. I grew up here graduated high school here in 1982 and worked as most of our local young men did as a logger for years. I was never happy working in the woods I was tired of tearing things up and I really wanted to create something beautiful that would last. So I broke from tradition and started to explore photography instantly falling in love with the craft. In 1996 I attended the Art Institute of Seattle and for the fist time this young rural man found a passion beyond his control. For the first time I learned of fine art nudes and black and white photography.
I learned about the masters from the past and my fellow students in the present. I lived in the city but would return on my weekends to fish and to be with family. More and more I found myself fishing pole in hand just sitting on the river banks listening and watching nature. It felt so natural and easy to be back here the place I knew so well as a child that I decided I had to move back. The land was calling me. I knew I had to capture these magical places and moments with my camera it was my reason to be alive. The land is my muse. I feel my nudes are an expression of how I feel towards this place. Man in nature restful, peaceful beautifully symbiotic.

Here is a great video interview with Stephen Johnson talking about photography. His views mirror mine exactly.


Fine art photography refers to photographs that are created to fulfill the creative vision of the artist. Fine art photography stands in contrast to photojournalism and commercial photography. Photojournalism provides visual support for stories, mainly in the print media. Commercial photography's main focus is to sell a product or service. wikipedia
