Meet Hide Terada and Dr Richard Zakia Tuesday Aug 5th 7:30PM

Both of our jurists will be available, Tuesday night,for questions and hopefully a pep talk before you go out over the next few weeks to shoot images for this project.

Here is some biographical information about Hide Terada and Dr. Richard Zakia.

Hide Terada

My name is Hide (he-day). I was born in Tokyo, Japan, and came to the United States by myself when I was 14 years old. I grew up shooting pictures, but my real exposure to photojournalism developed during my college days at North Carolina State University. My career as a photojournalist started with a small newspaper. But under the guidance of Dave LaBelle, formerly of the Ventura County Star, I worked my way to a larger daily circulation newspaper which included a local section of the Los Angeles Times. My images have been published through wire services like The Associated Press and Scripps Howard News Service. Now my focuses are journalistic wedding coverage, short term and long term editorial projects, portraiture and fine art photography.


Former staff photographer of local edition for the Los Angeles Times/TCN. Former full-time correspondent for the Ventura County Star. Nation wide publication provided by AP, Scrips Howard News Service, Corbis, and other media agencies.

"The most important photography tool you have is your brain"
