This issue’s featured photographer is Erik Trent.

“I’m a Dallas-based art director, photographer as well as content creator. I was first introduced to graphic design in high school and continued my education with a degree in fine aInstagram-Icon-2017rts. This gave me a solid understanding of composition and color theory. Moreover, it gave me an understanding of the basic framework of putting a picture together,” says Trent. “Photography has given me the opportunity to explore, be inspired and also share my perspective of the world around me.

“This photo is of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park in California. It was taken after a 9.5-mile hike into a pending snowstorm, just as the sun was setting. We were unprepared and excited at the same time. The result was something I will never forget.”
