    Andrei Z says:

    "Terry is an indefatigable and boundless source of knowledge about photography, equipment, and software. He has his opinions and he can defend them. He's also a great photographer because he knows his tools, techniques, and how to achieve the shot he is envisioning. I learned a lot from Terry and I always look forward to seeing his new creations."

    RBerteig says:

    "Terry spent four years of his youth in California, Institutionalized amidst an abundance of Technology. Although he hasn't quite escaped the state, he did manage to flee Pasadena. He clearly came away from that period of Demanding Extenuating Introspection with the skills needed to create and display Fine Exposures Inside Flickr, a great appreciation of learning, and a highly honed sense of when it is important to one's well being to just flick it in and relax.

    I and many other Flickr-addicts have benefited from Terry's willingness to share his extensive knowledge of technique, composition, and the gear that makes it all possible."

    "Flickr would be less enjoyable for me if it weren’t for people like Terry. He contributes a lot to the enjoyment and the social aspect of Flickr.
    His photos are fun and adventures and his pragmatic approach has thought me more about my own photography."
