Trent Nelson: Royalty

Far too many photographers I’ve met have egos the size of city buses. Not our Trent Nelson. When you meet him, he won’t tell you that he’s the Chief Photographer for the Salt Lake Tribune. Or that he’s shot 3 Olympics. 2 NBA Finals and an NCAA Final Four. Least of all that he won the Utah press Photographer of the Year. Three times.

Reading his blog won’t tell much of that either. What you will find out is:

  • He eats far too much junk food
  • He frequents thrift shops and Walmart between assignments
  • He encounters weird characters on Utah’s streets
  • He sees stuff most people miss. And he gets the shot.

For Snappola’s second release, we are thrilled to offer Royalty by Trent Nelson. Printed in an edition of 100, they won’t last long, so snap ‘em up.

Trent says, "I photographed these two members of royalty just before a parade in the small town of Magna, Utah. It’s one of my favorite places to photograph. In fact, all the small towns of Utah are. Large hearts are found in small places."
