About - Terri Shih

Hello! Thanks for dropping by.


My name is Terri, and I enjoy dabbling in graphics, illustration, and web design. But of all artistic endeavors, portrait photography is my favorite. To me, each shoot is an adventure-- each encounter an opportunity to connect with my client, get to know them and their loved ones, and immortalize beautiful and genuine moments on camera. Over the years, I've met so many incredible people with the privilege of learning about their stories-- and I hope to hear yours!

Outside of photography, I am currently a first year medical student at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. I also did my undergrad 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!

Shout out to Stanley Wu, Calvin Ha, Morris Lam, and Chang Liu for inspiring me with their amazing work!
