• Welcome To Brian Terry Photography | BT Bio

    I remember a camera my parents had. A 'Kodak Instamatic 25'. At home we'd play around with it, taking snaps of each other. Occasionally there was even some film in it. Afterwards, we'd drop it up to the Chemist and a couple of days later collect the results. Some of the prints had heads chopped off, hilarious, but they were photos, our own photos.

    In my early teens I got a small camera from an Uncle, it was part of a promotion at a business he owned. This was tiny and took really blurry shots - it was the first camera I actually owned. Sometime later a family friend called. Working for a newspaper he had all the gear. He offered me the camera to play around with. I remember going outside and putting the full-size professional camera to my eye, focusing the lens, pressing the shutter, I was addicted. Soon after that I bought my first SLR camera.

    We'd walk around Cork for days with our cameras, me and a friend, just taking pictures of anything. We would develop and print the photos in a tiny darkroom I had at home. I particularly liked people shots. Folks said I seemed to be able to catch nice moments. Shortly after my sixteenth birthday a friend of my sisters asked me to photograph her wedding. Initially, I said no, but she talked me into it. It was my first wedding to even attend - not to mind photograph. It lashed rain all day, but the pictures worked and she was delighted.

    From there I finished school, dabbled in college and, most importantly, spent four years working in a professional photographic studio before establishing my own business fourteen years ago. I still have that 'Kodak Instamatic 25' at home and I'm still walking around taking pictures of people. So, that's my story, what's yours?
