While traveling extensively as a journalist, editor and writer, Terry Fiala has captured award-winning photographs. Depicting the specific moment or image that translates to memorable fine art photography or photojournalism is the ultimate in following his passion.

Terry is an image-maker, whose work has been selected for display in galleries and juried exhibits, receiving numerous international and national awards. He believes in stirring the soul through photography and his international, award-winning series, American Homeless, selected by the prestigious, Prix de la Photographie in Paris for outstanding, international documentary series, is an excellent example.

Long regarded for his seductive fine art photography and poignant photojournalism, Terry continues to expand the creative process through crafted and inventive images that have become extremely popular among collectors. Each of these images begins as an original photograph and he then transforms them into another form of art

"Fine Art Photographer and Photojournalist, Terry Fiala, is an artist at the top of his game. His diverse body of work is a powerful hybrid of award-winning photojournalism photographs and beautifully compelling Fine Art images. He seamlessly brings these two disciplines together to create an exceptional body of highly-collectible master works.

The work of Terry Fiala is a wonderful collection of images that reveal the enormous depth of his artistic ability. As a journalist, he continues to constantly strive for visual statements that tell a story. Creating powerful color and striking black and white images are at the heart of his passion for photography."

Terry Fiala grew up near the sometimes beautiful, sometimes mean, but always extremely interesting streets of Chicago. His love of writing began as a high school journalist and locked in while a college student covering the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

His career spanned news and sports journalism, working as a morning news anchor and a play-by-play announcer for football, basketball and baseball. No matter the venue he was covering, Terry always carried a camera.

Whether walking the streets of Chicago or other cities throughout the country, his award-winning images captured homeless people on the streets, architecture, seascapes, mountains, sports and much more -- securing those photos was his passion.

Terry's lived many places on the globe, but Chicago sports has never left his soul. His passion for the Bulls, Blackhawks and Bears has continued strong; however, his obsession with the Cubs is legendary among his family and friends. His dad lived into his 80s and, as a die-hard Cubbie fan, never saw a championship. When the Cubs won it all in 2016, Terry, who had been standing for the entire Game 7, finally sat down and stated, "Now, I can die happy."

When he finally retired as a journalist, Terry became a photojournalist and artist full-time. This website contains a small sampling of his images, both purely photographic and artistic. All are for sale in your choice of material, structure and size. Call me with questions at 303.727.0816. Enjoy.
