Terry Mercer Photography

Welcome … and thank you for stopping by. If you haven’t yet done so, PLEASE click here to REGISTER… OR LOGIN NOW. This will allow you to save lists of images you like, purchase downloads or prints, and comment on the images (I can’t see the password you choose, and I don’t sell the list to other companies).

Under ‘Image Gallery’ there is now a detailed ‘HOW TO USE’ option. Basically, IF YOU ARE ON A MOBILE DEVICE, you’ll need to switch to DESKTOP option (on your device) to purchase any images (Buy Button is in the upper right corner). To view: select the ‘general category’ you’re looking for (the yellow high-lighted words below are quick links)… then click on the folder of the ‘set’ you want, then select the ‘group’ of images within you want to see. Event images are inexpensive, thanks to my sponsor www.VetSupplements.com, but unless you work for free… please don’t steal my images!

Once you select a gallery, it will open in a new window. Simply click on the photo to enter that gallery (Titles are under each image folder, naming the contents of that folder – use the back button on your browser to back up).

~ Concerts ~ including artists, Meet & Greets, crowd, and people at show. Each of the artists have their own folder. Images are usually processed (and posted) within 2 to 5 days from the shoot. With notification, and a few images for tagging & sharing, usually posted to: www.facebook.com/KnoxvilleConcerts

~ Contests (over 18) ~ Best Dressed, Swim Suit, Short Shorts, Halloween, etc. at assorted venues exist in this gallery. Images in this section are NOT available for third party commercial license, except for the venue and sponsors, without MY prior written approval. Personal Use ONLY for all others! PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST 1 to 3 days FOR ME TO PROCESS THE IMAGES.

NOTE: Commercial use OF PEOPLE is limited, no specific product endorsements authorized without express written permission by BOTH ‘TerryMercer.com’ AND the Performer/Contestant (or their legal representative).

~ Family Events NOT Contests or Concerts ~ like Ole Smoky Moonshine’s Festival – Jeff & Mark from the Moonshiners participated in the first annual ‘Moonshine Run’ – Parades – Fireworks – etc.

~ Youth Events ~ like Little League, KCYB Orchestra, Friendly Farm, etc.

~ Portraiture ~ individuals, couples, family… studio & outdoors. Everything posted there is G-rated (what could normally be seen in public). if you are interested in a shot – public or private, let me know what you have in mind, and where you’d like to shoot, style & type of outfits you have in mind, and purpose of the images.¬† Discretion is important to me. Most ‘shots’ are private, visible to the client only.

~ List of all the Galleries, Categories, and Top Level Sections ~
(including examples of ‘Sports Action’ and ‘Nature’ images)

Browse to your heart’s content, but please purchase what you like, rather than just taking it.

This slide show contains some of my personal favorites:

If you can’t find what you are looking for easily, and you know I shot it, send me a message – tell me what, where, and when… and I can usually find the correct link for you pretty quickly, especially if you’re contacting me within the first couple weeks of a shoot; months later may take more time. Understand, everything is archived to a completely different hard drive, and off-site, after about two weeks after the shoot. So if you want changes to an image after that, it will take some time to find it… and may incur a small charge, depending on your order (print size, quantity, edits, and reason).

I recommend that you register (it’s just name and your valid email address, no password or other personal information required) so that you can mark your favorites, share, access your favorites list from any computer (work & home, family or friends). Valid email address is required for any orders, and answers to questions you may have. I don’t share your personal information with anyone else… so you can feel safe & secure in registering here.

All of the photos are offered for sale for PERSONAL USE, many have limited availability for COMMERCIAL USE. There are a varieties of choices, from downloads, to prints, calendars, photo books, albums, posters, canvas and other even novelty items like ‘sports cards’ and collages. You can even have a photo¬†put on greeting cards, key chains, books, mugs, blankets, etc..

If you don’t see what you want (or need) ASK! Odds are it can be done…

Once you enter a gallery: Each ‘image’ is a folders (sub-gallery), until you get to the bottom level – where JUST IMAGES are displayed. I’ve purposefully allowed the ‘image name’ to be displayed (at the bottom of the images in gallery view, and on computers it’s easy… on ‘phones’ and tablets, it’s usually an overlay at the top or bottom of the images, or on a side slider… depending on your phone/tablet).

Knowing the image number/name allows you to write down the specific images you want or have questions about.

This site contains over 100,000 images, with more being added monthly. The average concert or event will produce 600 to 1500+ images, so please understand why I don’t usually ‘remember’ who, what, where, or such. It takes a great deal of time to ‘sort,’ ‘rate’ – and tweak (crop, sharpen) each of the images, plus there is the down load to the computer and upload to the web site time… it’s all very time consuming; which is why images usually take 1 to 7 days to process before the are made available.
