The Snow Monkey

New Books En Route to Flatbooks

Thanks so much for enjoying all the eBook offerings over at ! I appreciate it, and so do all the other authors there… πŸ™‚

We have a great new eBook on the way… and it is being written by the very same Jaime Ibarra that I mention below. It will be an amazing one…

Also, don’t forget to check out the new printing eBook from Ron Martinsen that was released a few weeks ago.

Daily Photo – The Snow Monkey

I found this guy right outside of Nagano, Japan.

I’ve had this photo for a while, and I decided to process it today while hanging out with Jaime Ibarra from (nudity warning. nudity opportunity.) We spent all day and night processing photos. He’s a great guy. His techniques are so unique! I was able to convince him to write an ebook for — I can’t wait to see it. We hope to get it out before Thanksgiving! πŸ™‚

    Oh wow! What a pose he has – and what an expression! Priceless! I love thes snow monkeys and the way you have captured them – they seem so self content!

  • I think this is one of your best none-HDR images Trey. The sharpness and contrast are amazing. The icing on the cake is the ‘wondering’ look of the monkey. Really great image.

  • Vicki Wilson

    A beautiful image, the snow monkeys have such soulful eyes, they are so cute! Your friend Jaime does beautiful work, thanks for sharing this with us.

  • Lloyd

    What a wonderful picture…his eyes and forearms show a contentment; and the halo is magnificent. Kudos my friend!

    Wow, you caught the snow monkey in just the right moment. Excellent job, Trey. Have a Friday. πŸ™‚

  • Gail Moshier

    oops, make that a wonderful Friday, lol πŸ˜‰

  • Andy Bird

    Haha I love the snow monkey series – they are so photogenic – I’m always fascinated how close they let you get, a lot of trust involved on their part!

    I look forward to the new ebook – wonder what it’s about – hopefully it will make me a photographer!

    Finally got some pics on HDR Spotting – no idea where they are on the site. I only found out when I wwent into my stats but here are two of them anyway……

  • Big Matty

    Hey, that monkey is wearing my beard!

  • Steven

    Jaime was one of the first people I circled on G+. Count me in on an ebook.

  • Fantastic, looking forward to read it! Another monkey shot?? πŸ™‚ They must be really photogenic. Nice one Trey!

  • What a fantastic little capture you have here. Love the processing. I would love to see these guys one day. I love Ibarra’s work. Awesome stuff. Thanks for introducing me to his stuff!

  • The picture looks great. I can see you learned a lot from Jaime- this monkey doesn’t have a stitch of clothing on!

  • Jeff Peterson

    I really like monkeys but there’s something about that photo that looks a little creepy to me.

  • hehe thx )

  • Justin

    So great. Purchased and watched your HDR Tutorial recently. Not only has it helped my photos a ton…but a lot of the techniques carried over to so many things I now do with photoshop at work. Also thanks for the introduction to Jaime. Would love to know more about his workflow and processing. I’ll be on the lookout for the ebook.
    Thanks again for being so open and honest about your work.

    monkey is really photogenic….”magnificent eye”…also snapshot timing was perfect…..

    I learnt the basic photography rules from Mr. Kishore Mamillapalli who is one of the leading wildlife photographers from South Africa. He used to say that β€œBeauty truly is in the eye of the beholder”. If you like what you see on your camera screen, or through the viewfinder, you will like the photograph.

    There are some basic photography rules for composition. Once you know these rules, you can use them, ignore them, or break them. Follow your gut, and you will end up with spectacular, sometimes breathtaking results. Kishore is really an astonishing wild life photographer and has a great eye for details..
