Touring with several musicians first, Thomas fell in love with capturing their energy and character in images. To master all of the technical skills he started out to work as a fulltime photographer’s assistant for Alex Rank and Uwe Duettmann for serval years. Continuing working with Paolo Roversi, Glen Luchford and Ellen von Unwerth.
Today the Berlin and Hamburg based photographer is an editorial and commercial photographer, specializing in portraits, people and corporate photography with a unique style consisting of urban and energetic imagery. He appreciates the raw reality of everyday life and the fleeting beauty; his experience and the desire to creatively tell stories is what motivates him.

„I believe in a good vibe on set. It is very necassary to get the best results of the images. Therefore I create a perfect and individual atmosphere for my complete team. My daily challenge is to combine the technical options with the human perspectives. And I love it“

Since 2010 Thomas Ternes is a lecturer at the Universitaet der Kuenste Berlin (University of art Berlin)
