     Terence Edgar Fincher was born on 8 July 1931 in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, his mothers maiden name was Walker.1 Len, his father, was a caretaker at Putney library and his mother Ruth was a nurse. Terry was educated at Clark's college, Putney, which he left in in 1945 to become an electrician's mate in a clothing company near St Paul's Cathedral.

At lunchtimes he would wander down Ludgate Hill and stare at the national newspaper offices then clustered along Fleet Street. One day he saw a photographer carrying a large plate camera with flashlight attached, and off to an assignment. He told his mother about his aspirations, got an interview at the Keystone Press Agency - and was hired as a messenger boy. He recalled running miles every day in all weathers delivering photographs to newspaper offices. He had one pair of shoes and kept out the wet by stuffing cardboard in the soles. "Nothing," he said, "could dampen my enthusiasm for Fleet Street."

As a reward his mother bought Terry an old folding camera for 18s 6d (92p). One day in 1947, travelling to work, he spotted a policeman holding up the traffic, and shepherding a swan across Putney Bridge. He leapt off the No 14 bus, photographed the scene, and developed the plate at work. The picture was published in all three London evening papers - the Star, the Evening News and the Evening Standard.2 He married June Smith in 1955 in Wandsworth, London, England.3 Terry was an award-winning British photojournalist. His career took off in 1956 when he accompanied British forces that invaded Egypt during the Suez Crisis. He later did five tours of Vietnam covering the war there for the Daily Express, as well as reporting extensively from trouble spots in the Middle East and Africa. He was British press photographer of the year for 1957, 1959, 1964, and 1967, and runner-up in 1968.4 After Terry left the Express, he freelanced for three months on the Sun. Then, in 1970, with his wife June and their daughters, he set up the Photographers International agency. It was based in the former railway station at Chilworth, Surrey, and supplied Fleet Street with news and features with high-quality material from worldwide assignments. Later, they specialised in the royal family, in particular Princess Diana, with whom both Terry and his daughter Jayne built up close personal relationships. Earlier this year, a retrospective exhibition of his work was held at the Getty Images gallery in London.2 His wife June died on 19 September 2008 in Sandilands, Blackheath Lane, Blackheath, Surrey, England.5,6 He died on 6 October 2008 in Sandilands, Blackheath Lane, Blackheath, Surrey, England, at age 77 from a liver tumour.7 His body and that of June Fincher were cremated and their ashes buried in Wonersh and Blackheath Cemetery in plot Z67 on 15 October 2008 in Guildford Crematorium, Godalming, Surrey, England.6
