About Terry Barnes Fine Art Photography

I always try and capture nature's scenes with realism and at the same time want to bring out the best that the image has to offer . I think of myself not just as a photographer documenting a scene but also as an artist, always attempting to excite the viewer and to draw them into my images. 

Being self taught and a photographer for over thirty years has led me to my own style of shooting which sometimes isn't by the book. I love to shoot landscapes more than any other type of photography. Nature scenes just speak to me in a way that soothes my soul.   

My images have appeared in the following puclications: The Laurel of Asheville, The Laurel of Highlands/Cashiers, The Georgia Mountain Laurel, WNC Magazine.

I have shown or currently show at the following galleries:  Tsartistry Gallery in Franklin, NC., Uptown Gallery in Franklin, NC., The Blue Ridge Art Center in Blue Ridge, GA.,  Great Smokies Creations Gallery in Waynesville, NC.,Cedar Hill Studio in Waynesville, NC.,CatchLight Gallery in West Jefferson, NC.,and The Bascom Art Center in Highlands, NC.
