About - Terri Shih

Hello! Thanks for dropping by.


My name is Terri, and I've always enjoyed dabbling in graphics, illustration, and web design. But of all endeavors, portrait photography is my favorite. Each shoot is an adventure, an opportunity to connect and immortalize beautiful and genuine moments on camera. Over the years, I've met so many incredible people with the privilege of learning their stories-- and I hope to hear yours!

Outside of photography, I am a second year medical student at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. I also completed my undergraduate degree at UCLA where I studied Psychobiology and Public Health! My family is from Burma and Taiwan, where I spent my childhood, before we moved to the Bay Area.

Any questions about photography, illustration, or the freelance / pre-med / medical student life? I'd love to chat with you-- hit me up!

I also want to thank my talented friends-- Chang Liu, Stanley Wu, Morris Lam-- for taking these photos and always inspiring me with their work!
