Troy Solomon for SKORCH by Liz Estrada

Troy is a perfect example of why social media is so great. He is an interesting, fun, happy, endearing man that I got to meet and photograph thanks to Instagram.

Troy invited me to his birthday party via Direct Message over a year ago. I couldn’t make it because I was leaving for Australia the following day but we kept in touch (liking each others recent posts) and so on. After seeing one of his infamous live “Wine Wednesday’s” which all of you should watch, you can thank me later; I knew I had to hangout with him. I was staying at a hotel in Silverlake/ Hollywood area shooting my friend @Curvysam and he joined us. To keep it brief he is a beacon of light, positivity and love. He’s great! Check out an interview I did with him coming up  the next issue. Here’s just a taste of what there is to look forward to!

Oh and if you haven’t already, go follow Troy’s insta! @abearnamedtroy
