Three new videos to show off the three new bags!

The New Backpack Video

I had a blast working with the team at Peak Design on this project! Here’s one of three new quick videos that show off our new bags on Kickstarter at http://pkdsn.com/trey — Here’s some fun facts we just got. This is the most funded active Kickstarter project. These are not only the most funded bags in Kickstarter history but the most funded photo gear ever! Thanks again to all the backers for making this such a huge success – you guys rock!

Check out our new Sling video! I know it appears the guy using this bag is engaged in semi-illegal activities, but just note you can use this bag for completely legal purposes. See more at http://pkdsn.com/trey

Here’s a nice quote from Peta Pixel:

– “So how popular is the Everyday line of bags? Well, in the first day of being on Kickstarter, the new campaign has already blown past the $500,000 campaign goal and is rapidly approaching the $1 million mark, meaning it’s doing even better than the wildly popular initial campaign.”

and here’s another nice one from The Manual:

– “We have to hand it to the team at Peak Design. They know the Devil is in the details. From careful consideration of space and storage, to materials, to the craftsmanship of the straps and closures, every aspect of their products are on point. As Peak Design says themselves, ‘This ain’t just a camera bag’ “

and one more from Popular Photography:

– “We love camera bags, but it’s not often you see one generate genuine excitement outside the photography nerd set. The Peak Design Everyday Messenger bag was a runaway hit, however, and now the company is using Kickstarter to expand the line with a Backpack, Tote, and Sling bag option.”

Here are the other two videos…

Moody Canals at Night

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!
