After years floating between jobs in a search for fulfillment, Terry Scroggins discovered his passion for photography in 1984 while shooting football games with a loaned professional camera and a single flash. As he expanded his skills to include subtly lit indoor portraits, he began traveling throughout the region and later the country to snap subjects from ball teams to bands, prom-goers, and beauty queens. A skilled communicator, Terry could deftly organize teams of athletes into position for group portraits, even when he and they had no languages in common—an issue that almost caused difficulties during the fast-pitch softball Women's World Championship, in which 27 countries were represented.
After years on the road, Terry eventually settled down to restructure his business to accommodate emerging digital methods. Today his portrait studio hosts carefully posed photo shoots and classes in everything from lighting strategies to photoshopping a unicorn horn onto the family dog.
