Born in Philadelphia in 1827, Trotter worked for a machinist company and a dry goods company in Philadelphia and served in the Germantown Home Guards during the Civil War. It was not until he was 40 that Trotter turned to painting as a full time occupation.

Trotter is known primarily as a painter of landscapes and animals. Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman purchased his painting, Wounded Buffaloes Pursued by Prairie Wolves. He exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1858 to 1887, at the National Academy of Design and the Boston Athenaeum as well.

Trotter traveled and painted scenes in the western plains, California, and North Africa.
