Troy Shay is a Diné (Navajo) photographer who is based in Las Vegas. His last name is derived from Canyon de Chelly, which is a national monument next to the town of Chinle on the Navajo Nation. Shay has an associate’s degree in business from the College of Southern Nevada and a bachelor’s in photography from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. For nearly 10 years, he was an accounting controller, but decided to return to school to develop his art and pursue photography. For several years now, Troy has combined his profession with his passion for being behind the camera and runs Troy Shay Photography. He is an expert in shooting natural landscapes, social events, headshots, family and group photos, and he has photographed over 600 weddings and engagements. Troy is ready to take appointments and also donates his time in the community by shooting activities for the people. In addition to being involved in the Indigenous community, Troy also cares about the land and loves to capture pictures of the beauty found within the natural environment. He always has his camera ready when spending time with his family outdoors enjoying nature. Troy is a loving husband and father, and teaches his son to give rather than take.
