THE VIBE: Phenix City native, Trey Walker, captures the world

Trey Walker talks photography career

PHENIX CITY, Ala (WRBL) - Trey Walker is snapping his way into the hearts of many across the Valley and the world. He is hosting his first art gallery on July 21 from 5 p.m.- 9 p.m. at Second Story (located across the street from Iron Bank). The event will focus on promoting travel, adventure and the great outdoors. 

For the first time ever, he's a Phenix City native we're exploring the world of photography on The Vibe. Walker has traveled all over the world to take these captivating pictures. He's been to Korea, Iceland, all over the Southeast, Pacific Northwest, Bahamas, and more. 

Walker says photography is something he truly loves. 

"I strive to show the beauty of the world and inspire more people to enjoy it. Its great seeing things in Instagram, but seeing them in person is so much better," said Walker.

He began his photography journey about 5 years ago, and it's been his driving force ever since.

"I shoot everything, weddings, brand work, travel work, and anything in between. Travel and adventure style work is my favorite," said Walker.

He says he still works a 9-5 job to help fund his travels. 

One picture, in particular, went viral across Columbus. He says snapping this beautiful picture of the lightning strike happened by being at the right place during the right time. It paid off big time -- he received over 10,000 retweets. 

Walker is a graduate of Troy University. You can follow Walker's journey via social media: Facebook is Trey Walker Photo and via Instagram @treywlker and @treywalkerphoto. 

WRBL's LaPorsche Thomas and 103.7 Lite FM's Morgan Taylor will be covering all things local arts-related such as music, plays, comedy, dance, poetry, and etc. These two ladies will keep you up to date on all of the local stars you need to know about.
