|High Mesa Productions (HMP) combines Terry
Thompson’s panoramic photography with Linda Thompson’s copywriting,
copyediting, and other production services.
The High Mesa in Taos, New Mexico, has mountains and river canyons, sage and pine, a history that recedes endlessly into time, and dramatic skies that are constantly changing. Describing this part of New Mexico, Willa Cather wrote, “Elsewhere the sky is the roof of the world; but here the earth was the floor of the sky.” This especially applies to Taos County. Panoramic photographic images are most appropriate here.
Photographer Terry Thompson sells fine art prints for commercial and residential décor applications, shoots and licenses stock photography via two stock agencies and his own website for print and the web, and does architectural photography for architects and developers.
High Mesa Productions’ recent fine art photography sales have included client uses such as hospitals, corporate boardrooms, municipal buildings, business interiors, hotels, spas, restaurants, homes, ski lodges, country clubs, and wineries. In addition, we have licensed stock photos for publication all over the world. Such uses include billboards, brochures and other publications, product labels, web sites, magazine and newspaper stories, calendars and posters, building interiors and exteriors, developers' print advertising, architects’ portfolios, and visitors’ and vacation guides.
Terry Thompson is an award-winning photographer who also has a background in film and video production. A panoramic photographer since the early nineties, he prefers the wide view panoramic format for photographing nature, landscapes, agricultural crops such as vineyards and orchards, wheat and barley fields in the Palouse region of Washington state, the large vistas in the Southwest, water, trees, and other fine art subjects.
Linda Thompson writes books, magazine and newspaper articles, website copy, advertisements, newsletters, and brochures. Until April 2013, she taught online courses as part of the University of California, Berkeley’s, professional editing certificate program: the intermediate editorial workshop and a grammar course for editors (which she developed for UCBXO in 2007). Linda often combines her skills with Terry’s photography to produce articles for print and the web. In fact, Linda has had her own photography published.
