Meet the Juror: Trent Foltz is a commercial, editorial and fine art photographer. Foltz started his career 28 years ago after receiving his Bachelor of Arts in Photography and a Bachelor of Science in Forestry from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. He worked for the National Park Service and National Forest Service as a photographer and audio visual specialist before opening a commercial photography business in St. Louis, Missouri. Clients included the St. Louis Zoo, Missouri Botanical Center, and Cracker Barrel Restaurants. After 10 years in St. Louis, Foltz returned to his hometown of Geneseo, Illinois, and continues to work with commercial clients. His fine art reflects the Midwest landscape he grew up with and believes is overlooked in today’s art world. Foltz has had many national and regional shows, and his work is in galleries and private collections nationally. Foltz is also an adjunct professor and teaches photography.
