He’s Troyt like a toiger
Troyt Coburn is a great photographer. This may not be evident in all of the thumbnails below, as in my opinion they aren’t the greatest pictures ever, but the samples on his site tell a completely different story. Why then, you may wonder, did I post not-so-great pictures when there is a plethora of others a thousand times more pleasing to the eye? Because, dear friends, I have no idea how to save the pictures from his website and so I was limited in my quest to shove Troyt Coburn’s greatness in your face.
The Lee ads are a bit base, not so appealing to me; but I really like his editorial work and his work on various other advertisements, like the one pictured above. There’s virtually no info on the photographer out there, and the only things that I’m pretty sure of are that he is Australian and male. As far as his first name goes, it certainly is an interesting one, but I tried to find the origins of his name and came up blank. Maybe his parents are into Greek mythology and wanted to put a spin on Troy? No idea…but the name Troyt doesn’t exist in any of the baby names databases I abused.
That’s about all I have to say on that subject. Troyt, your photography is awesome but your name is even awesomer.
