Terry Moore

Nationality: Australian

Residence: Houston, Texas

Terry Moore started diving back in 1983 and cut his teeth exploring Port Philip Bay in Victoria Australia. As the years passed he moved up to be a PADI Divemaster in 1988 while living in Perth Western Australia and after a 8 year stint in the Australian Army as a combat medic Terry got certified as PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer with Mike Ball Dive Expeditions in Townsville in 1998. He was soon employed by Mike Ball to be the resident Photo Video Pro on board TSMV Watersport (now sold) and occasionally on MV Spoilsport.

In 2000 Terry left Australia for the United States; soon after arriving worked a short gig with Peter Hughes Diving in Belize Central America as a relief Photo Video Pro. Back in the United States Terry sought and secured a position as the Manager of a underwater photo operation on the island of Tortola, British Virgin Islands. He remained there till he became a US Resident in 2002. Terry returned to the medical field after completing his Paramedic program and was sought after by Houston's leading 911 agency upon certification. Terry remained in Houston doing 911, teaching at a local college before heading off to the Iraq war as a Bodyguard/Paramedic for a security company. This gave Terry the necessary cash injection to upgrade his Canon G1 and ikelite system to his Canon 20D in a Aquatica housing with twin DS-125 strobes and to travel the worlds best dive locations.

In the past two years Terry has dived, Palau, Chuuk Lagoon, Papua New Guinea, Australia's Great Barrier Reef & Coral Sea and various locations in the Caribbean. Terry will be returning to Iraq late 2008 and will upgrade his current 20D system to Canons newest 1D Mark III. Terry shoots wide angle with a Canon 10-20mm lens and Macro with a Canon 100mm F2.8 with a variety of extension tubes and at times a 2x converter. Terry's passion for photography allows him to capture images in all disciplines both underwater and above water.

His images are displayed on his website www.liquidmotionproductions.com and on various websites throughout the world. His achievements to date are back to back Houston Underwater Photographic Society "Best of HUPS" images, Scuba Diving Photographer of the week x3 and runner up two years running in underwaterphotography.com annual competitions.
