Steampunk Shredder

By Terry Ratner

Shooting pictures has been a part of my life for years, beginning as a component for most of my writing.

Over the course of my life, I’ve experienced both the democratizing and the addictive natures of photography.

I practice it like any discipline one loves—obsessively, many times creating havoc in my personal life.

“OK, that’s enough. Put the camera down.”

Great shots, Terry! You capture some very interesting individuals and make us see all sides.

OB is just loaded with twisted characters. I love that you capture them in all of their glory!

Hey Terry. The steampunk shredder is “Felix The FireCat” I’m a local OB fire entertainer that spins during our epic subsets 3-5 nights a week. Do you want to do an actual story on me? I’d be happy to be featured in the OB Rag and I have TONS of amazing pictures in mice an beach.
