About Us

Linda Thompson is a writer and editor in Taos, New Mexico. She has written 20 children’s books on American history, as well as magazine and newspaper articles on a wide range of subjects. She also has many years of experience as managing editor and writer for company newsletters and other publications. For more than seven years, Linda taught two copyediting classes online for the University of California, Berkeley. These courses are requirements for students wishing to earn a professional certificate in editing.

Linda holds BA and MA degrees in English and a California secondary teaching credential with minors in Spanish and French. She takes photographs mainly as a hobby, although some of her photos have appeared in New Mexico Magazine and similar publications. In 2001, she won first prize in the Taos "Lighting of Ledoux Street" Christmas photo competition. "Photography often needs descriptive words and written stories are perfectly supplemented by photography," she says. "The breathtaking beauty of Northern New Mexico calls for both."

Terry Thompson is an award-winning photographer, specializing in the panoramic (6 x17 cm) format since the early 90's. He shoots both stock and fine art images, as well as assignment work, and art consultants throughout the Southwest represent his award-winning panoramic photos. Through these consultants, he sells to the healthcare industry, corporations and individuals, frequently in sizes of nine feet wide and longer. He also sells his images for use as stock through Panoramic Images, a stock agency in Chicago, as well as via his web site, TerryThompsonPhoto.com.

Terry enjoys seeking out beautiful landscapes and composing them in a way that creates a piece of art. "My work continues to emphasize the stunning natural beauty of the Southwest especially in Taos," he says. "Stemming from my former career in nature cinematography, I never tire of seeking out the heart of subjects that result in images that reveal the subject’s emotion."

Terry started taking photographs underwater in the early 80's. Ten years later he dried off and discovered the panoramic format and hasn’t looked back. He enjoys the wider view because it more closely resembles our vision of the landscape. Reviewer Virginia Clark wrote in a Taos News feature article: "Thompson’s work is unsurpassed. Art lovers will be amazed by the painterly effects his soul pulls from such mundane events as a blue moon rising over White Sands..."

Thompson has done editorial and commercial assignment work for New Mexico Magazine, Charles Krug Vineyards, various architects and builders, and the National Park Service. His images have been published in magazines, retail calendars, greeting cards, and National Geographic publications, and have been made into puzzles for Barnes and Noble. Locally, Thompson’s photography can be seen in locations such as the Edelweiss Lodge and Spa (Taos Ski Valley) and the Quail Ridge Resort. His images have sold numerous times through New Mexico’s "Art in Public Places" program. He is a member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) having served as past secretary of the New Mexico board of directors.
