Trina Olson

by Brian Clarey

This is how Trina Olson sees herself. This week’s Page Three model is a seasoned photographer, with a 10-year career that includes hundreds of weddings, a like amount of portraiture and a gallery of rock shows – she’s shot Bruce Springsteen, KISS, Jessica Simpson, Velvet Revolver, Dave Matthews and Phish, among others – that would make a groupie squirm with envy. She’s no stranger to the music scene; Trina has two children with local rocker Evan Olson, Irish twins Ava Moon, 5, and Griffin, 4. And, she says, “I was a big punk rocker in the eighties. I had a black Mohawk in eighty-five. I had that Robert Smith hair; [I had] that bleached-blonde, you know, eighties hair; Siouxsie and the Banshees, all that. And now I look so’… you’d think I used to be a cheerleader. I was not a cheerleader.”
