About Troy


Hi, my name is Troy Ward and I’m the owner and photographer at Photos by GI. I am a thirteen year veteran of the United States Army and still on active duty. I began taking pictures several years ago when my wife wanted me

I am a portrait photographer who focuses primarily on fashion and glamour type shots but I also love working with couples and seniors. I generally prefer to shoot on location but have no problem working in the studio as well. I do all photo retouching myself using Adobe Photoshop CS5, but normally like to leave my photos looking as close to real life as I can to show the true you. to find a hobby. I quickly fell in love with photography and haven’t looked back.

A few other random facts about myself: I’ve been married to my wife for 9 great years. We have a 6 year old little girl and 2 year old boy. We moved here to the Barstow area in March 2012 from Colorado Springs, CO. I miss Colorado a ton but am glad to be here in California. I’m from San Diego, CA originally and a huge Chargers fan. Aside from photography, I am a huge computer nerd and love to read.

I hope you take the time to look through my work. If you like what you see and are interested in discussing your next photo session feel free to give me a call at 254-423-1181 or email me at photosbygi@gmail.com.
