Hi there, I'm Terence Bridge and the Proprietor of TJB Photography. I hope you are enjoying the website as this is my first outing with the superb CMS software Concrete5.
Following a Grammar School education and a short dalliance with Art School, I have spent most of my career in the Construction industry in and around London.
Following retirement, my wife Jacky and myself have up sticks in the UK and taken ourselves to this beautiful Greek island of Crete. We live in the Apokoronas, an area below the White Mountains and on the north west coast of the island.
We glory in three fabulous grandsons although two reside in Australia and the most recent in the UK. As well as sport my main hobbies are photography and website designing. Crete is a marvelous place to enjoy these.
I have a passion for photography, not just capturing my own images, but looking through other peoples on Flikr, Deviantart, etc etc. I am the same about websites. I'm continually browsing the web looking at graphics, new websites, new ideas in technology, etc etc.
This is the way we learn after all.
I built my first website with Microsoft Frontpage in 1989. It was for the local boys football team. I've since used several platforms, Dreamweaver, Wordpress, Xara, Photoshop and now for the first time Concrete5.
I've found that using a theme template is the best way to learn but will in future design my own theme.
I've also found that the website is a great way to showcase my photography. I sell my images on Alamy.com, a company started up by some old friends of mine that used to sell school furniture. It's now become one of the biggest online image sales company.
My other passion is music, in particular, live music. I get very interested in local bands here on Crete, some quite good, some not so good. I have a very catholic taste in music and I go along to listen to everything. I love building online music stations. Look out for APOKORONAS365.COM
Why Choose Me
Not just because I'm cheaper than the competition I hope. I care about my work, and I care about my customers. My support will be second to none.
I have been working with computers since the mid 1980s and designing and publishing websites since the late 1980s. I like to think I keep attuned to all the latest techniques and technology.
Photography has been my main hobby for over forty years and I switched the darkroom for Adobe's marvelous suite of Photoshop and Illustrator as soon as the digital age was upon us.
Photography, graphics and web design are still a hobby to be enjoyed.
