#WhyCV Photographer Spotlight: Troy Wright
“I love our wild horses here in Nevada and hope that my photography may help with public awareness toward preventing their plight of being removed from our ranges.”
Each month in 2020 we shine a spotlight on a local photographer, and explore the intricacies of the world through their lens. In September, we highlight US Air Force veteran Troy Wright. After 27 years as a deputy sheriff at Lake Tahoe, Troy celebrated retirement by buying a camera allowing us all to reap the benefits of his new hobby.
As you scroll through the images below, you can see he has a love for the wild horses of Nevada. “I grew up on a large ranch in Ione California with horses. My high school sports teams were called the Mustangs. I was an extra in the movie, The Mustang. I love our wild horses here in Nevada and hope that my photography may help with public awareness toward their plight, preventing their removal from our ranges.”
