Terence Ford (born April 21, 1945) is an American actor and photographer.


Life and career

Ford was born in Chicago, Illinois, of one quarter Irish, one quarter German and half Belarusian Jewish descent. He became interested in photography at an early age. However, like his father, grandfather, and older brother, he became an actor. Unlike his brother Harrison, he never became a household name. He later said "I didn't enjoy acting, it was just 'the family hardware store' if you will, so there weren't any roles I enjoyed. It was just a job! My father was an actor, my brother, Harrison, is an actor, my grandfather was in Vaudeville, I ended up having some roles in films and soap operas. In my 40s, I returned to acting, performing in 'every single soap opera ever shot in L.A.' including The Young and the Restless and General Hospital, some episodes of Falcon Crest, Hotel, and Santa Barbara. I was also assistant director to Ridley Scott on the movie Blade Runner."


He entered his career in photography at age 21 by attending the London Film School in 1969. He helped to produce more than 400 television commercials.

Dropping out of acting in his 40s, he eventually became a full-time professional photographer. In 2007, he exhibited some of his photographs in a show entitled "1/8 sec. Slow Speed in the Fast Lane". In this exhibition, his work featured Native Americans, horses, cowboys, and children caught by the camera while they are in movement, creating a beautiful and haunting image, where colors repeat themselves in the action of a mysterious aura.
