Artist Statement: Troy Wayrynen, Photographer

Sharing my talent and vision of the world through photography is my passion. The camera is like a painter’s brush and canvas for me, a tool to create compelling imagery that connects to my viewers who have often asked, “How did you do that?” I always take great enjoyment in answering that question and helping others reach their visual potential. Most of all I love working with people who want to share their stories, and bring them to life through the magic of the camera.
