NEW! Plotagraph Pro now available with a Monthly Subscription

Plotagraph Pro is now offering a monthly subscription service. It's just $29.97 USD per month with no contract and you can cancel anytime. This monthly plan opens up the door to many of you who might have been hesitant before.

What is Plotagraph Pro? It's online software that allows you to easily make animated photos from your existing images! See that image of the temple below? It was made from a single still image. It works on any computer, using any photo and is available at the Plotagraph Pro website. It's incredibly fun and simple. You upload one of your existing photos and specify which parts you want to stay static and the areas you want to organically move. You draw some basic paths of how you want the motion to look, then voila, you're done! You can then export it as a GIF, MOV, or MP4 file.


My Crazy Trip Around The World - Naples and Ft Lauderdale

After Part 1 of our around-the-world trip, it was time to visit Naples and Fort Lauderdale, Florida

We had a great time in Naples! In each of these videos, I try to add a few photo tips and tricks as well as show you behind-the-scenes stuff of our family trip around the world for this year. Lots of fun and funny things happen... trying to keep everything in balance!

The next stop was in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Lots of photo tips as well a model shoot that I typically don't do. Thanks again to The Ritz-Carlton Resorts for hosting us at these amazing locations!

Facebook LIVE with Anthony Bourdain!

A few days ago we did a Facebook LIVE show while at The Ritz-Carlton's Cayman Cookout in the Cayman Islands (highlight video in the making), with one of my biggest creative inspirations - Chef Anthony Bourdain. We talked about a lot of different things including creativity and teaching. is a personal blog where Trey puts up a new unique photo every day and writes about the art, the technology, and the story of the adventures. Actually, this is Trey writing about this in third person. Both Trey and I appreciate your support very much!

Some photos from Naples and Fort Lauderdale :)

Sunset yoga with the family on the beach at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples
We got to see a few dramatic sunrises in Fort Lauderdale!
The Japanese restaurant where we went for dinner one night in Naples. I got the hot tip from my friends Pasha and Katie when they joined us at our beach cabana!
A panorama I took from our room before leaving Naples to drive to Ft Lauderdale!
The amazing Gumbo Limbo restaurant where we headed to dinner on one of our final nights in Naples. It’s out on the beach and the perfect place to watch the sunset and make some bad food decisions!
We had some massive unexpected (but colorful) sunset storms hit us while we were in Ft. Lauderdale. It was beautiful to watch from our balcony.
Here's the famous Rum Room at Burlock Coast. The night before they cleared out those tables in the middle and we had an amazing private family dinner in here. Next day we came back down here for a fun cooking class. This is across the street from the beach in Fort Lauderdale just off the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton.
Another beautiful day as the sun dipped into the sea in Naples. This is the view from our room. I took this at about 240mm with the Sony A7r mark 2. It was cloudy most of the sunset but I had high hopes the sun would make a little appearance before leaving us!
