About this pro

In the entire world there is only one YOU! Wouldn't it be nice if that amazing uniqueness was THE important issue up for discussion here because it really is! All photographers have cameras and geeky gear and speak about weird stuff like ISO and f-stops. That should be taken for granted. What should NOT be take for granted is YOU! Working with me is an experience that draws out the beauty of your truth not a "photo shoot" which sounds more like a hunting trip!

I have 20 years of experience as a visual storyteller in multiple niches including event photography, portaiture, performance, nature/landscape.

i enjoy capturing the beautiful stories of people, places and events.

    Terry knows how to set you at ease so you look great in his pictures. Some of my best poses are from him, taking shots quietly while I was leading network meetings. Terry is great to work with, never pushy or overwhelming; he blends in and takes fabulous shots. Mostly, you can tell he's passionate about his behind the scenes camera shots, by looking at the results! I highly recommend Terry for all your video and pictures.

    My late husband and I met Terry when we first moved to MD. He was introduced to us as a photographer but it wasn’t until we saw his work that made our jaws drop. He really captures the essence of everything he targets through the lenses of his cameras. He’s professional, polite, friendly, and passionate about his photography, and has a strong work ethic. My husband got to work with him as his assistant and he got to see the behind the cameras scenes; from setting up a photo shoot to editing. His work is incredibly valuable!

    Terry is an amazingly kind gentleman who has a unique way of capturing precious moments like no other. I am very grateful to him for his many times being the white knight in shining armor to support events I either organized or attended. A true loyal professional who deserves favor, blessings and appropriate compensation for his many years of dedication to his craft of photography. Such a low key meek man who others might take advantage because he is so kind but let tell you he is every bit savvy, talented and experienced. Anyone would be lucky to have him as their photographer. After a special event that’s all you have is the pictures for your memories. Thank you so much Terry 2020 is the year your business will soar.

    Terry Brennan at Life Scenes Photography is an outstanding photographer, with an artistic talent and excellent eye for composition and color. He did a wonderful job as the photographer at my mother-in-law's 90th birthday party. He took the best picture of her that we've ever seen, and we display a framed print of that photo in our home. I also have a beautiful large photo, also framed, of a sculpture silhouetted against the sunset outside the Strathmore Mansion in Rockville, MD.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Each customer is unique so I don't use a cookie cutter, one-size-fts all approach. Ideally, I like to meet customers face-to-face beforehand to get to know them a little, their personality, special needs, etc... which helps maintain a professional and cordial atmosphere during their session.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I trained for event photography with Clay Blackmore of Rockville, Maryland.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I have an hourly fee for my time during a photography session but it would be counter productive to lump the wonderful variety of customers and their individual needs into a single "pot."

How did you get started in this business?

I have been taking photographs all my life. I started with an old boxy Brownie and then Polaroid as a child, moving up to an SLR then DSLR around 18-20 years ago.
