Experience:
I've been into photography for over thirty years; my work has appeared on the covers of magazines nationally and internationally
 
Comments:
I have been concentrating on retro, vintage and burlesque images, and in particular in recreating imagery by airbrush artists from the forties and fifties like Elvgren and Petty. To the best of my knowledge the particular ‘airbrush cheesecake’ style of retouching I am using is unique to me in the UK.

More recently my work has encompassed other genres such as fetish, latex, shibari and nude work.

I’m on Facebook where I am Retro Photostudio, where you can find my gallery of several hunded of my images.Recent projects have included Bettie Page bondage and 1920's Louise Brookes recreation. I particularly enjoy working with models who can add their own ideas to the creative process.

Publications include Bella Morte Magazine, Skin Two, Rag Mag, Retro Calendar for www.collectif.com, Milkcow Magazine, Pin-up Perfection magazine, Marquis, The New York Optimist & the Milkcow Pinup Calendar. I've recently shot for Libidex, Playful Promises, Collectif, HotRockinBelle, Bamboo Bettie and for CorsetHeaven, as well a few dozen shoots with burlesque artists and troupes.

My work has featured on the covers of Skin Deep, Tattoo Vixens, Skin Shots International, Milkcow, Skin Art, Vintage Life, Tattoo Revolution Magazine, Tattoo Life, and many more.

Although I mainly accept paid commissions, I am prepared to consider TFCD (if your looks/shoot suggestions will really benefit my portfolio) and you will be required to sign a Model Release and also provide a photo ID as proof of age.


I'm sure you'll enjoy your shoot - feel free to contact anyone I've worked with here to find out more!

Had an amazing shoot with Terry yesterday. Pre-communications was excellent, he even organised a make up artist for the day and had a fully equipped studio. He is a true professional, gentleman and very accommodating.


Terry is creative, had excellent ideas and also allowed me to put in as much input into the shoot as I wanted to. He knows a lot about lighting and how to bring the best out of a model.


Throughout the shoot I was allowed to view the images that was taken which I found to be very helpful. From what I have seen there are a lot of amazing images that I could use for my portfolio and I have found it extremely hard to pic the best ones.


Thank you for an enjoyable shoot. I am excited and looking forward to seeing the final images. I really hope to work with Terry again in the near future. Highly recommended

I had my first shoot today with the wonderful Terry Mendoza and I had been looking forward to this for weeks. He really puts his heart and soul into producing absolutely stunning images and captured me at my best :-)I would definately recommend Mr Mendoza 5* photographer.
Look forward to doing another shoot with cupcakes :-D

Had my 1st shoot with Terry today at his studio. What can I say accept wow! Amazing use of space! So many props! A photographers dream. He certainly knows his lighting and exactly what he is after. He was welcoming and always checking if I was warm enough or needed another drink. We achieved so many super images, working with him was effortless and great fun. Anyone who hasn't shot with him yet is sorely missing out, get down there! I know I'll be booking another shoot soon! Thanks, Stacey xx
