Thanks Again Denver

That was a great workshop we had in Denver – thanks again everyone. We’re working on getting all the Screen Recordings ready for you now! :)

Daily Photo – Moody Canals at Night

Here's one of those bridges that I would cross almost every night when walking back and forth from St. Mark's Square to Accademia. Many bridges, like this one, have restaurants nearby so there's often a nice little cluster of activity around each one.

Fields from Above

Preparing for Battle

I notice most of the time when I go out to take photos, it’s not a hotel-room 72 degrees F! So I am either bundling up or preparing for a sweat-lodge. There’s no in between… like here in Bali, for example, I just prepared for a whole day of sweating. It’s good to bring an extra towel, as Douglas Adams warned us.

Daily Photo – Fields from Above

My whole life I've seen photos of rice fields and always wanted to see them in this terraced formation. I did see a few in China, but they were not even impressive enough for a photo. They were a bit dull, and not terraced, you know? But then I got to Bali and was able to see many of them… just as amazing as I have imagined. I understand the ones in the Philipines are even better, so I hope to see those some day too.

Happy Penguins!

Trey’s List

I’ve recently been updating Trey’s Favorite Things on Amazon. I’ve got all kinds of goodies on there, including some of my yoga shirts you guys see me where on the air and ask where to get them! That sentence was shit; please accept my grammar-apologies.

Daily Photo – Happy Penguins!

Are these penguins happy? I actually don't know. They LOOK happy based on my innate ability to project human behaviors on top of penguins. They waddle back and forth and make silly noises, which sounds like what my kids do while they are happy. They also have projectile poop. “They” is interchangeable there.

Happy Penguins!

Hobbiton From Above

Trey’s Bag

I’ve recently updated and basically replaced my Camera Bag page here on the site. It lists my three most used bags for different situations!

Daily Photo – Hobbiton From Above

Another perspective on the flour mill in Hobbiton. Everything works on this mill on the outside, but I think the inside is fake. That's okay, eh? I can suspend belief for a bit! But it is nice to watch that little water wheel spin around and around and around. It makes me think I want a mill someday, which is a bizarre thing to want since I don't really like making my own bread.

Crazy Lenticular Clouds over Queenstown

The drive to Glenorchy

It really is one of the most beautiful roads in the world. If you visit, try to plan to drive it twice, in different parts of the day. The light, clouds and weather will all be different… and you can stop and re-shoot the same magical spots over and over with differing results.

Daily Photo – Crazy Lenticular Clouds over Queenstown

One day I went out on a little photo reccy with my friend Mark. We drove down to Glenorchy, but on the way there, we were treated with this extra-terrestrial treat! We get these clouds from time to time in Queenstown, but rarely do we see them swirl into this kind of a vortex. This was a long day for me, as I had just woken up at 5 AM to climb that same mountain you see there for some sunrise shots!

A Study

More Abstract Work

I’ll start posting more of my abstract work in our Facebook Group at Becoming an Artist Facebook Group. Be sure to join that group and share your art too! :)

Daily Photo – A Study

Here's a photo I almost didn't publish. I actually take a ton of photos like this. Little studies in light and texture with some surprises here and there. It's quite abstract, and I don't publish a lot of that. This is part of a unique winery on Waiheke Island.

Bondi Beach in Australia

Australia

I love Australia, but I also feel like there are a lot of things there that can kill you. I don’t like that part about Australia.

Daily Photo – Bondi Bay in Australia

Here's a place I've always wanted to visit! I only was able to spend one afternoon here, but I'm keen to go back and get more photos. I actually got quite a few photos with the Quadcopter but haven't had time to go out and get them processed yet. Here's a fun fact… out there in the ocean is a “shark net” to make sure the sharks don't come eat humans. So, my word of advice is to stay on the beach-side of the shark net. Also, you should hope that sharks don't know how to jump nets.

Over the pond in Hobbiton

Trey’s Creative Survival Kit

For those of you coming to our various workshops around the world, I hope you’re enjoying Trey’s Creative Survival Kit. It’s one of the goodies that are included. Be sure to check out our Workshop page to see if we’re coming to a city near you :)

Daily Photo – Over the pond in Hobbiton

Here's another drone photo I got while in Hobbiton. I arrived early in the morning and had to get special clearance so I could do some flying. It was worth every second. I've been to Hobbiton about five times and was looking for a new perspective.

Morning in the Ice Folds in Antarctica

Antarctica Photo Walk

Be sure to click on the “Antarctica” category and scroll from page to page to see photos from our midnight photo walk. It was surreal… like being on Neptune or something.

Daily Photo – Morning in the Ice Folds in Antarctica

Of all the crazy things I did for the month I was in Antarctica, probably one of my favorite nightly rituals was a hike out on the ice fields. Sometimes those nights would go all the way into the morning. It's hard to tell since it's bright all the time and my watch was often under layers of coats! But it's a good place to let time drift away and take photos forever.
