Thank You for Stopping By!


Terry's Design & Photography began its journey in publishing in 1995. Working for publishers such as CTB/McGraw-Hill, Wadsworth Publishing, Brooks-Cole Publishing, Jones & Bartlett Learning, and many more. Roles within the publishing community included Photo Researcher, Copyright and Permissions Editor, Photo Editor and Photographer. My first book that was published in 1998 was by Ed Neukrug, The World of the Counselor (1st ed), with hundreds more that followed.

As I continued my life's journey, I also worked as the Director of Photography for Top Quark Productions and The Photographer's Window. We continued working with publishing agencies and began working on a documentary. Exciting times! My experience includes designing ads, creating dummies, or designing a website for magazines and newspapers -  creating a newspaper, and then moving into the world of education.

The past 11 years includes teaching undergraduate and graduate studies for online universities such as the Art Institute, the International Academy of Design & Technology, Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, and Sanford Brown College. Not only do I teach for these entities, I also design curriculum and was recently added to Western Governor's University as a contractor designing curriculum. Most recently, I have been contracted through Cohesion to design curriculum. I have successfully designed curriculum for universities such as Indiana Wesleyan University, North Central University, The Institutes, and for Pearson Publishing. As you can see - I love what I do!

My education includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communication, Masters of Business degree in Marketing, Post-Master's College Teaching Certificate, and a Ph.D. in Education/Philosophy.
