ABOUT ME

Telling stories is something humans have done since the beginning of time and I make my contributions through the view of a lens. 

My name is Trent, which you know after finding this portfolio, and I’m a photographer and videographer based in Dubuque, IA. 

My goal? To craft visuals creating moments that viewers want to watch over and over again. 

I first found my love for visual storytelling back in high school and have spent the last eight years seeking every opportunity to shoot places, people, and events to develop my craft and enhance my skill.

My professional career began at Eastern Michigan University with a graduate assistantship where I entered the fast-paced life of athletic content creation. I successfully promoted fifteen athletic teams at the national level and found where my experience as a student athlete informed my creative direction. 

From there, I took the steps to become an Assistant Director of Marketing for Digital Media at Loras College where I market the student experience by acting as an all-in-one photographer, videographer, editor, and producer.

Who knows what stories I’ll get to tell next, but a few of the best have been… 

  • NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships – Detroit, MI
  • Loras College: The Musical – Official Selection of the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival
  • 2020 Biden Presidential Campaign
  • ‘Shoot from the Pit’ Workshop with David Bergman Covering Luke Combs

Is there a story I can help you tell?
