Nikon Ambassador Joey Terrill’s presentation, Souvenirs of Light, is a blend of images and carefully crafted words designed to connect with photographers of all levels. Combining portraits of Derek Jeter, Jimmy Kimmel, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and many others with subjects as diverse as architecture, macro, and abstract photography, Joey takes the audience on a journey that encourages photographers to follow their own unique path behind the camera. Souvenirs of Light is inspiring, visually diverse, and has been called a “game-changer” by Brad Smith, the former Director of Photography of Sports Illustrated.
During the presentation, Joey will share the three simple rules of light that you can immediately apply to your own style of photography and how it can set you apart as a photographer. During the live session with a model, he’ll also discuss how to shape light to achieve the look and feel you want using simple modifiers, colors, and exposure strategies.
Using clear language and visual examples, Joey will share many techniques that will push your photography to a new creative space using effective lighting.

JOEY TERRILL began his career as a photographer for the Los Angeles Times before moving on to magazine and advertising photography for clients that include American Express, Coca-Cola, Disney, Golf Digest, Major League Baseball, Red Bull and Sports Illustrated. His career has spanned many specialties including architecture and interior design, corporate photography and annual reports, editorial and corporate portraiture, golf course design, large and small products, and aerial photography from helicopter platforms.
On his learning website, The Penumbra Project, Joey writes about photography, the use of light, and his experiences behind the camera. The Penumbra Project grew out of Joey’s love for teaching and sharing about photography. Accompanying the features are example images, lighting diagrams, and behind-the-scenes videos, still pictures as well as sections on camera and lighting gear, computers and software, and other valuable photography resources.
Joey teaches workshops and speaks at seminars including the Summit Series Workshops, Popular Photography Mentor Series, WPPI, Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar, UPAA Symposium, and Sports Shooter Academy.
A very proud Nikon Ambassador, Joey genuinely enjoys sharing about a camera company that has done so much for so many. “My relationship with Nikon is long-standing and goes back to my first days as a photographer. Being a Nikon Ambassador has brought Joey closer to the company, involved him in the marketing of it’s products, and formalizes a relationship that has existed since his first days as a photographer.
