Burano, Italy

New Under 60s video!

Newly released over at The Arcanum now you can sign up in under 60 seconds and also use Facebook login – cool! What is The Arcanum? It’s an amazing new way to learn Photography (other skills coming soon) with the tried & true Master & Apprentice system, but with a modern twist… think of it like Uber for creative brains! :)

Burano and Murano

These are two different places! I didn’t know this before I went. Murano is the place to go for all the glass blowing and that sort of thing. Burano is quite a bit further away, but as you can see, it’s more than worth it!

Daily Photo – Burano, Italy

I took SO many photos here. I was already completely overloaded while in Venice, but then I got here and started lighting it up even more. It was about 10x as colorful as Venice, which was already pretty insane!

Rainbow over Bryce Canyon

Back to Utah

Okay after three days of this, I’ve decided I gotta get back to Utah! :)

Daily Photo – Rainbow over Bryce Canyon

And then after the storm I was treated with this. How lucky! Whenever I see a rainbow I still get excited like a little girl. I know they just don’t last too long so I snap away while the magic is happening!

The Storm’s a-comin’

Day 2!

And for Day 3 of Utah, you’ll see what happened after I took this photo! Or, at least, what the storm caused…

Daily Photo – The Storm’s a-comin'

These seem to slam into the US during hot summers with quite a bit of authority! It was both exciting and a little worrying. I was wondering if I had time to get back to the car before everything completely unraveled. I did…but just barely.

Utah in Mixed Light

Three Days of Utah?

Is it okay if I post three photos in a row of Utah? It’s been a while since I’ve done any Utah photos, so let’s have a little party here! :)

Daily Photo – Utah in Mixed Light

I found the quality of light in Utah to be absolutely amazing. It’s usually my favorite time to shoot around the mornings or evenings, and the light gets even better there then. I think it’s because this is one of the few places where there are red rocks, and then when a warm light hits them, they absolutely go on fire.

London in the Last Light

The Phantom 5

Don’t forget to check out the amazing Phantom 5 speaker. It’s really just off-the-wall awesome!

Daily Photo – London in the Last Light

Here’s a photo I took from atop The Shard one night. I noticed that they shut down one side of the bar/restaurant just for the restaurant. And that’s the side where’ sunset is! So I had to do a bit of fancy-British-talkin’ to get myself over there in a position to take this photo!

Craziest drinks ever

This Skybar has absolutely the craziest drinks ever… Here’s the crazy menu so you can kind of get the idea!

Daily Photo – Entering the Bar Atop the Burj Al Arab

What an amazing place this is! I never expected the entrance way to look like this. I thought maybe it would be more elegant… not like I’m walking into TRON or something. I didn’t know what to expect. In fact, it was so strange that I almost forgot to take a photo. Almost.

Quadcopter Racing

Have you ever seen this? Definitely worth a gander!

Daily Photo – Looking down on Hong Kong

Aren’t these all great shapes? Even though I was standing on the ground down there, I didn’t think it would look this cool. I was too busy trying to avoid those wires that are over the intersection that the electric buses use. I can’t imagine it would be a good move for the DJI to touch one of them!

Classic Flights

Be sure to check out Classic Flights if you ever go to Wanaka. Anyone can go up… it’s so fun and the scenery is, of course, second to none.

Daily Photo – Wings over Wanaka

When I went to Wanaka for the Instameet day, Stu and I arrived early to go fly around in some of these awesome old planes. These are called Tiger Moths and they are just as much fun as they look. Well, I mean it’s more fun if you’re not in the middle of a war with the Germans and stuff.

The Massive Burj Khalifa

Vertical Symmetry

The little lines inside the Sony viewfinder are pretty good for centering stuff, but they could be better. Vertically, there’s always a bit of a question mark for me too. I’m never totally sure till I get it back home. If you don’t get it close to right, then it’s almost unrecoverable.

Daily Photo – The Massive Burj Khalifa

Right after I took this photo, I started my love affair with the Ritz Carlton. You see, I was inside shooting the Armani hotel, and they didn’t like it too much. Well, not at all. I came outside and did a live Periscope about how I was just kicked out… and the Ritz Carlton sent me a great tweet that said, “You can come over here anytime to take photos Trey!” What an awesome thing to hear… And now we’re besties! :)
