Caught you looking! 🙂

Welcome to my page and by the way, the T in Images by TDashfield stands for Teri.  I’ve loved photography and art for as long as I can remember.  Now whatever shall I say about me?

I’m a born and raised Midwestern (Missouri) girl who in 2010 left the home sod to live elsewhere (Ohio) for the first time ever in my life!  Talk about a shock to the system.   I have been traveling , and loving it, ever since I was thrown into the back seat of my parents Ford Fairlane and driven off into the sunset.  I love meeting new people, making friends, the ocean and mountains, music and dancing, art and now hiking and visiting national parks.  I may have to give up my city girl card if I keep this up.

And of course, I love photography.  I was once a Canon user but now I’ve gone mirrorless. Sony to be exact, specifically the A7RIII and A9.  My favorite and most used lenses are the GM 16-35 2.8 and the GM 100-400 4.5-5.6 beauties.  Ask me about them if you want to know more about the system.  If you like the images I post, feel free to comment or contact me about purchasing or using an image.  Don’t be a pirate and make off with any without permission.

View my portfolio at www.imagesbytdashfield.com and purchase my images at my Etsy shop.  I now have a new site where I write about the interesting people, places and events here in Ohio.  Stop on by at What’s Happening Ohio.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. Love your photography. You have a great eye. As a Mom who has pushed two out of the nest to start their life’s adventures, I know how excited you must be. All the best with your life and your new blog. Cheers! Eleanor T.

    I followed you back from my blog and really like what I’ve seen so far. Oh, how I remember when I moved away from home. What an empowering experience! I can’t wait to read of your adventures.

  3. Great stuff! I’ve been enjoying your witty comments on various friends’ blogs, and your photography is delightful, so it’s time I followed you on your own blog! Glad to “meet” you. Cheers.

    Nice pictures. I liked your big pelican a lot. Good luck with your career choices. Sorry about your Mom. My uncle is deeply in dementia now. His daughter, my cousin, was an official photographer for the Alzheimer’s Walk in NY recently.

    • Thank you and welcome, Victor. Mom is free now and for that I am sad but happy. I once worked for the Alzheimer’s Association and recall all of the hub bub when we were getting ready for the walks.

    Hi Teri. In an effort to improve my art, I am trying to put together a small group of people who would be willing to critique some of my images. I have followed your blog for some time now, and I respect your work and creative vision. If you would be willing to assist me in this way, please send me an e-mail to ted@gazellefinancial.com and I will let you know the specifics of what I have in mind. Thank you so much for considering this. Sincerely, Ted.

  31. brittanyc895 says:

    Hi 🙂 I love your photos! 🙂 You do great work! I had a quick question. I was hoping that I could use one of your photos for an analysis for a class I am taking. I wanted to use the photo of the Cathedral Windows. I just have to write my observations of the composition and basically, where the light is coming from and such. I am not claiming it as my own, the photo kinda needs to go with the paper, if that is possible. With your permission of course. 🙂

  32. earthstills says:

    Love your images!!

  33. Brett says:

    I think your subject matter and sense of composition are great! Look forward to seeing more.

I sense so many of us who wake to meet the challenge of capturing great shots, whether color or B & W, or writing something brilliant, is on the rise. I love your B & W’s and wish you the best of success. Perhaps my day will come but for now I will appreciate those who have met with their success. Thank you for sharing and stay creative. Best wishes.

I bet you are quivering in excitement… or perhaps you might be hitting your head against a wall repeating the phrase “Not another award, not another award!” You don’t have to accept this award, but I would love for you to pop over to my blog and come celebrate! There will be imaginary champagne, disco balls and a drumming cat! What more could one want? Hehe.

    Lovely photos. I’m always jealous of those who can take great shots. I don’t have an eye for it so I’ve decided to love my cell phone images. Still appreciating professional photographers in Missouri.
