Strange Things Grow in Vegas

How about this place?

This was shot at a really slick bar called Club Mix at the top of THE Hotel in Las Vegas. A lot of people ask how I end up getting shots when no one is around… Sometimes it is a camera trick, and sometimes I am lucky enough to get into places when no one is around. In this case, the people from MGM/Mirage, who own many of the most beautiful hotels-casinos in Vegas knew I was coming to Vegas and they gave me carte blanche to move around freely. I wore those poor people out because I didn’t get tired… I was like Homer in that episode where he went to hell and was forced to eat donuts nonstop. He kept saying “more” until the devil got frustrated.

Anyway, a big thanks to David and his crew there at MGM/Mirage. I have a ton more shots coming in the future… so, as with other threads, stay tuned!

Last, I have updated my “Things That I have Found That Inspire Me” page. That page may take a while to load… my apologies… but once it is done, I hope you see a few cool things as well.

    Hi Trey,

    Fantastic photo, and an excellent piece of design work.

    Looks like a Heart that feeds the building.

    I think i’m going to put your name on my business cards, that way maybe i’ll get the same type of access to places that mere mortals like me never get the chance to go. lol.!!!!!! 😉

    All the best


  • I love the curved lines on the right. My eye went straight to the red thing, but quickly to those lines and stayed there. Don’t know why, but them are cool, especially in HDR!
