Troy was raised in his family’s photography studio in Iowa. He didn’t call on photography – it called on him. After being kicked off his high school yearbook staff, he began shooting for the local newspaper and freelancing for the Associated Press. He majored in architecture at Iowa State University, and then eventually moved to Los Angeles to pursue his photography career. He shoots all forms of lifestyle, luxury, and travel. In addition to his love for photography, Troy has a soft-spot for technology and culture which resonates throughout his work. He currently resides in Brooklyn with his wife and son Rogan. And if he’s not off jet setting to some foreign land, you’ll most certainly find him at a cool new restaurant preaching about amazing food and art.
