Hi, I'm Trina. Thanks for checking out my website. I keep a website because I love photography and I want to share my work. It's that simple.
I started creating images when my dad brought me an Olympus OM-1 in 1985. One of my first jobs out of high school was in a T.V. studio in Vancouver, BC, Canada, but the casting couch was alive and well back then, and I really didn't like unions, so I decided to get the hell out of dodge. I chose a career in photography instead and did that for the next 10 years.
I worked as a cruise ship photographer, a land-based events photographer, did some commercial studio work, some fashion photography, some stock photography, and was a stock agent for a while. Eventually though, it was time for a change.
I returned to school. Eight years later, I emerged with a master's degree in research psychology. After eight years as a student of psychology, I needed therapy. After recovering from that and knocking around for a while, I decided to make a living doing what I'd been doing since high school: boating.
I worked as a deck hand, a steward with the Canadian Coast Guard, I lived on my sailboat for 7 years, and finally managed marinas. I loved managing marinas. I married a Navy man--I I love my Navy man--got posted, and had to give up managing marinas. So, I started writing professionally. I love writing professionally. So now, I do that. I write. And hang around marinas. I also do photography. These things make me happy.
All the images on the site have been taken by me (even if they're OF me), and are copyrighted. I'd appreciate it if you ask before taking anything off the site. I suppose if you wanted a print of anything, we could talk, although this isn't really a commercial site.
I hope you enjoy yourself in these images. I know you can't have as much fun looking at these as I did making them, but I hope that for a few moments you get a chance to step out of your shoes and immerse yourself in my world.
