Terry Berenson

This is Alfie, my best friend and muse. We moved from New York City to San Diego in 2014, and love the dog-friendly life and beautiful climate of our new home.

I’ve been an avid photographer for over 20 years, perfecting what I call relationship-centered photography, creating images that capture the interaction between my subjects and their environment.  Working with animals is a particular passion, and volunteering at the ASPCA taught me how to quickly make friends with any dog or cat in order to capture their unique expression and personality. 


I’ve studied privately with some of New York’s best photographers, and am proud to be a member of Professional Women Photographers (PWP) and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP.)


My book, ANIMAL WISDOM, is available through the blurb.combookstore. Ten percent of all my photography session fees and book sales are donated to animal rescue organizations.


"Terry Berenson looked through her camera lens straight into my puppy’s heart. She’s got the magic touch, and the proof. . . is in her proofs.”
