BIO: Dynamic, quintessential landscapes, wildlife, and intimate details of Earth's most awe-inspiring natural, historical, and cultural places, captured with planning and patience.
No set-ups. No models. Just photography, pure and natural.
Terry McDonald is an artist, author and educator, working in fine art landscape, nature, and travel photography. He approaches photography as both an art and a craft: a solid grounding in technique frees him to explore a variety of visual styles to capture the essentials of place and
the art inherent in nature.
Although Terry grew up and has lived most his life in Canada, he has also lived and worked overseas in Tanzania, Germany, and England. Additional travel destinations have included East Africa, South Africa, and northern Ethiopia;  the Galápagos Islands; Southeast Asia; Europe, the UK, and Iceland; then back home to Canada's provinces and National Parks from east to west.
However, projects closer to home are equally captivating: the familiar contours of the Bruce Trail along the Niagara Escarpment, as well as the subtle and dramatic beauty of Ontario's cottage country and wilderness provincial parks.
Terry lives with his family in Guelph, Ontario, his home base for hiking, backcountry canoeing, Nordic skiing, and hosting photo workshops.
Terry’s work has been featured in Photo Life, Light & Landscape, and Luminous Landscape and is held in private collections on four continents.​​​​​​​
