I have been a member of Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) for almost ten years and am accredited in Fine Art/Photo Décor. I am also a Certified Professional Photographer with the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). I’m a graduate of the Journalism program at Carleton University and hold a Master’s degree in Canadian Studies, also from Carleton. I have been teaching photography courses at St. Lawrence College since 2007.
I operate my business, Terry Tinkess Photography, from my studio in our full-scribe White Pine log home in Ingleside, Ontario. I have taught Journalism, Marketing, Communications, photography and entrepreneurship courses at St. Lawrence College in Cornwall, Ontario since 2007.
The photographers who have influenced me the most are Jay Maisel and Joe McNally, both of whom I have had the honour of meeting on numerous occasions.
