Meet Your Seattle Tour Guide

Terry Divyak - Owner

I have been fascinated by the idea of travel for as long as I can remember, and this interest was sparked at an early age when my family moved to the United Kingdom and I took my first trip to Europe at the age of four. Since then, my love of exploration has taken me on many adventures and led me to where I am today.

My passion for travel and photography inspired me to create Shutter Tours, a premier tour company in Seattle. I have been fortunate to visit many beautiful places around the world and have come to appreciate the unique cultures and people of each destination. As a fourth generation Seattleite, I am especially proud to call this city my home and to share its beauty and history with others. Through Shutter Tours, I hope to inspire others to explore, learn, and capture the magic of travel through their own lens.

My personal photography has taken me into many directions including Photo District News Magazine as a winner in the Pro Division of PDN's World in Focus Travel Contest in 2008. Grand Prize winner in 2009 Wells Fargo/Wachovia photo contest. I have also written for Pilot Guides, a travel site better known for their Globetrekker TV series. I was a featured photographer on MyFox networks, 1-hour special produced by Bennett Productions and Ujena TV. Numerous interviews include the Seattle Times, Puget Sound Business Journal, Washington Examiner and television appearances on QFOX13 and Seattle's premier local show, "Evening Magazine." Additionally, I have been a judge for the Seattle University International Photography competition and the National Scholastic Photography competition.

As a family-owned business, we take pride in offering the best tours in Seattle. I personally enjoy interacting with our guests and serving as a tour guide on many of our trips. When you call us, you may even have the pleasure of speaking with me directly. We are dedicated to providing a warm and personalized experience for every visitor to our beautiful city.
