People of Papua New Guinea Part 4

Any Good Receipt Trackers?

I’m an Android kinda guy… any of you know about a good receipt tracker? I asked these guys in Papua New Guinea, but they were absolutely no help at all.

This is another inventive tribe when it comes to personal decoration. They paint one half of their bodies in a stark white. It gives a very striking visage when the sun is out and pounding down because the white pops against the black skin. What makes it even more intense is everyone was really sweaty, so it gave for an extra shine soul-glo.

Daily Photo – Oh Venice!

It's really getting close now for arrival in Venice for our photo adventure! I already have my plane tickets and everythang… it's gonna be so epic. I never get tired of taking photos here. I have to remember to stop even more when crossing bridges to try to find more scenes like this.

Oh Venice!

Happy little girls in China

My silly Chinese Photo Editor

I think I can safely say this since my blog is banned in China after I flew a quadcopter over the Forbidden City. But while I was there, I was taking photos as part of a team. There was some SUPER LAME photo editor that demanded I send him RAW photos. I told him no. He then asked again, and I stopped talking to him since I already gave him the answer. And then he said he didn’t want me to take photos of people, but, you see, I had stopped talking to him quite a long time ago.

This group that invited me had always been super-cool before. But they had some self-important guy there that didn’t know jack… once I figured that out, I just ignored him. Ignoring people is one of my greatest skills.

Daily Photo – Happy little girls in China

When I was here it made me realize that little girls are the same all around the world. They like to wear pretty dresses that are kinda fancy and strut around in them. It’s totally a girl thing… super cute. Since I have two girls, I completely understand. It’s one of those little gentle threads that ties the whole human race together.

Tony Horton P90x3

Anyone else do Tony? I’m a big fan actually… I end up doing one of these a day. I did all the previous P90 stuff the best, but I like these because they are all just 30 minutes long. Plus I like that Tony is such a nut haha… he cracks me up.

It's hard to believe that all the paints that the tribes use to adorn themselves come from the local plant products. If I was in the middle of a jungle, I think all I could do is maybe the color green if I smashed some leaves into my face. I could probably do brown too if I rubbed mud all over myself. I'd pretty much have the lamest tribe ever.

White Sands at Sunset

Interview on CBS in Miami

Here’s an interview I did on CBS… These news people always crack me up… I like how they call me “Trey RAPEcliff” haha — and then a little later when they show “my” photos they are actually pictures that I never took! Except for the last one of Miami! Anyway, here it is :)

Daily Photo – White Sands at Sunset

How incredible is this spot? I had always wanted to go to White Sands in New Mexico, but it was never that easy to get there. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere! Well, our bus tour was passing through El Paso and we decided to park for a while and rent a car to get out here for a spell. The sand was so white and soft… like warm gentle snow that never melts.

A Brand New Book from Trey!

Now Available!

Here’s yet ANOTHER secret new thing I’ve been working on over the past two years, my new eBook entitled “Light Falls Like Bits“! I’m VERY excited to have worked with our publishers at Goff Books to make this happen.

This eBook is particularly unique because it has four articles about me that were not written BY me. Strange, eh? Haha yeah I know it’s not what you’ve come known to expect, so this is a curve-ball for ya. There are texts by Maura Reilly, Michelle Bogre, and Erik Davis. There’s also an interview by Jordan Crandall in there that you will enjoy.

For all the images in the book (100!), I did write special captions for each one. That was a lot of fun to go back and re-visit each of these images in that way. I also did a bunch of “audio captions” that you can listen to if you get the iPad or iPhone version. People seem to enjoy those quite a bit!

The whole book is 246 pages and is currently available for iOS (iPhone/iPad), for Android, and for the Kindle Fire.

One other rather unique thing is that when you get an eBook, you also get to pick from one of 20 downloadable prints. If you like, you can even buy a few eBooks and with each one, you get to download another print! :)

Pop over to our ebook page to buy it now! :)

Spellcheck

I have no idea how I got through school without the red squigglies. BTW, squigglies has a red squiggly under it. But I just saw that squiggly does not. I bring this up because Icemaw has one of them, but I saw that coming.

Daily Photo – People of New Guinea Part 2

These are some rather mysterious (and somewhat creepy, if I can be so bold) pygmy people that came down out of the mountain jungles one day to have a dance-off with the other tribes. I was kind of hoping they'd do Thriller or something that I knew… or maybe re-enact a classic scene from Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. But they didn't! They did a very special kind of dance that was both threatening and used absolutely none of Trubo's marquee moves.

New Presets today!

New Presets today!

I’ve got someCrazy Named Lightroom Presets for ya this month… Oh yeah, I didn’t hold back. Maybe it’s because I just spent a week at a yoga retreat and it did strange things to my mind… or made my mind even stranger! Don’t miss trying, “Latin Oil Slick.”

Daily Photo – The Gaping Icemaw

I spent the day near Shackleton’s Hut in Antarctica. It was bitter cold, but I decided to take a little hike to the edge of the volcanic cliff. Just over the edge, I saw this. Amazing! On occasion, I’d see little penguins come jump up through the deep blue onto the ice. I was hoping to see an Orca takedown, but I was not lucky, but the penguins were.

Digging In for the Winter

More on Video

I really can’t wait for you to see the video from here… the making-of shots like this! Also, the making-of the structure itself haha!

Daily Photo – Digging In for the Winter

Do you know how hard it was to build this? It was extremely hard! One of the hardest bits is just moving around inside of your suit. It’s very bulky and makes for any kind of manual labor 4x as hard as it normally is. And, normally it’s not easy to cut out giant ice blocks and carry them around!
