Critiques are for people that want to email me images. I critique them and give written feedback. I talk about image selection (as best I can), cropping and framing, post production and overall impact of image. I have been very fortunate to have my work critiqued by some of the best in the business. Sometimes it hurts sometimes not, but always constructive. This can be done as often as you want.


This is a program, which I also have worked with mentors, and it changed my work. It is a one on one over the phone or it you live close we meet if the person wants to. This is what is covered

Goals - Why are you shooting and do you hope to accomplish?

Images - much more in depth than a general critique. Getting you and your images to where you want them.

Photoshop - We talk about the post processing end of it, along with image selection.

Upcoming Workshops

Photography and Climate Change

Comm University

February 2019 at St Ambrose.

Class 27 Fine art photography to understand climate change

Trent Foltz, Trent Foltz Photography
Dr. Stephen Hager, Augustana College

As artists and environmentalists, we care deeply about our planet and what is happening to it. In this workshop we will study the art of photography and use the environment, more specifically climate change, to learn about the creative process, what makes great images, and exploring the differences of making vs taking photographs. Context for environmental inspiration will be derived from studying the basics of climate change and how to document such change in the field using photography. Learning about F-Stops, shutter speed and ISO, and how those camera setting will help us with our vision. The goal is to produce amazing images of the environment while making a statement about what is really happening to it.
