We’ve been working on this for a while, and we’re happy to announce a series of Photo Walks across the USA!

The New Screen Savers Show!

I was recently a guest on Leo Laporte's show The New Screen Savers. This was a fun show for sure... all kinds of stuff actually happened... this is kinda the “highlight reel” with just my stuff on there. I talk about the new Sony a7RII and the RX100 Mark 4 — plus a little Catherine Hall action!

Introducing the Trey Mega Pack

In celebration of the new USA Photo Walk Tour, we are releasing the Trey MEGA Pack, which is everything I’ve ever done, all in one pack. There is a special discount code “TREYUSA” to save another $100 — for a total of $300 off the full normal price. So, it’s a great deal!

This package has been our most common request, but it took me years to put it together! Now you can get everything I’ve done here, all at once. It’s a super-convenient way to download everything, all at once. From Tutorials to Presets to eBooks, it comes with an absolute boatload of goodies. Everything is self-paced and perfect for every skill level from Beginners to Intermediate to Advanced. As you’d assume with a package this epic, everything is covered. 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!

I keep a completely FREE HDR Tutorial on my website. It is a living document that continues to evolve over the years. It goes over everything you need to get started and is a great introduction to the basics of HDR photography and post processing.

A collection of Favorites from the last 30 Days at

My Studio in Fresh Snow
Here’s the studio I walk to every day from the main house. Every now and then in the autumn and winter there is a wonderful snow that falls and gives everything a parallel-universe feeling. I find I have to take these photos early in the morning because in late afternoon, all the white snow starts to melt off the trees and you lose that nice reverse-contrast feeling.
Young Ninja at Mt. Fuji
How cool is this kid? I was exploring this small town around Fujisan and all of the sudden, this kid jumped out of the shadows and started doing all kinds of crazy moves! I pulled out my camera, then he really started going nuts, performing all kinds of wild maneuvers at me. It was so awesome!
Another Gem found with the Stuck on Earth app
This little place right by Bang Saray, Thailand was a real surprise. I always pull up Stuck on Earth when I’m in a new spot and constantly finding cool things here and there. This was one of my greatest finds!
The rails to Casablanca
Technically, I suppose, these are the rails between Casablanca and Rabat in Morocco. I shot this out of the back of the train, looking towards Casablanca where I had just left. That’s where the main airport is, and I was disappointed that Casablanca was not a more awesome town! I had just watched “Casablanca” for a second time on the plane on the way there, and I had high expectations, but I’d say it was by far the most disappointing of the places I visited in Morocco. I’d rank it last among the 7-8 cities I stayed in during my three weeks there!
A Sunset After The Bullfight In Nimes
Who would have thought some of the best Roman ruins were in Nimes, France? Not me! But they are. I find them generally better preserved than the ruins in Rome itself! I’ve always been a fan of Roman history, so I geek out when I see this stuff. In this same arena, the following night, I saw Sting perform, which was a most wonderful anachronism.
Outside The Robot Restaurant In Tokyo
This is a must-visit place if you go to Tokyo. It’s completely insane. They have robots all over the place and tons of scantily-clad Japanese girls. What could be better? The music and the display they all put on together is completely overwhelming! They serve you food in an old-school TV-Dinner from the 1970’s while you watch the proceedings. I’m still not sure what happened that night, but it was completely INSANE. You gotta go.
Crazy Chinese Opera-Circus-Thing
I was invited to this crazy scene in Beijing. I knew it was gonna be intense before I went, but I did not anticipate the weirdness of it. And it wasn’t a good-kinda weird like Cirque de Soliel. It was the strange-kinda weird where you feel like it was designed by somebody completely insane. Eve
