I got up at 5 AM on this frosty -5 celsius morning to head up to the top of The Remarkables ski area to get some sunrise photos. We took a snowcat all the way up to the top of the Curvy run. The stars were so pretty, I decided to get an early start with the photos. I love the way the lights and the snow machines were making a Hollywood-like scene in an epic tapestry below.

We did a live broadcast from here... up next is the Dog Derby when my dog Blueberry will be racing down the hill with Jô Eridani at his side against 50 other dogs. We'll try to do a FB Live quadcopter shot of the race... don't want to miss that one! See you soon...

Hey, it's Worldwide Social Media Day! Yay SM and stuff :) #QueenstownLive #QTWinterfest #PureNZ

Episode 13 of Season 1 is out! As with every week, we leave up the episode for one week for free before taking it down. If you wanna get all 15 episodes, my RAW files, bonus videos, and more, see below.

To get the series, go to http://www.stuckincustoms.com/becoming-an-artist/

And now...

As for Episode 13, join me in "Through Their Rich Tracery One Sees the Sky Beyond" In this episode, I talk about how I was influenced by Mark Twain’s writings and how I failed at trying to make the photography equivalent of his writing. I finish by creating a “Painting” of elephants by combining a photo with textures.

Share your photos and discuss this Episode in Trey's Funky Lounge on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/BecomingAnArtist/

Notes from our amazing production team:

Entirely shot in Africa, Trey wanted to do something totally different, something he had never done before. This series explores the answers to the following questions…

“What is it like to become an artist?”

“What is it like to find that creative self inside of you?”

and for the practitioner: “How does he take and post-process his photos?”

Trey begins each episode with a very personal story. These might be strange stories from his childhood, embarrassing stories as a grown-up, or just weird stories about how he became an artist. You’ll hear how these stories emerged as life lessons which impacted his photography and art. The 15 episodes touch upon topics such as composition, color, light, and inspiration. This series will not only show you lots of photography tips & tricks but will inspire you to take your art in bold, new, and interesting directions.

A gentle reminder that you can get all 15 episodes of Season 1 now, along with all my RAW files and bonus episodes at http://www.stuckincustoms.com/becoming-an-artist/ — This is one of the many places we shot in Africa... Actually, when I took this, I didn't have the latest quads or anything. You don't always have to have the latest cool tech to create.

Here's one of my favorite pictures from our family trip to India a few months ago. We pulled into a station for the night to have dinner and relax. I was in the bar/lounge traincar relaxing and editing photos then I decided to head out onto the platform for a late night shot. That guy in the photo? He was our steward and his name was Aman. My daughter Scarlett could never say his name right and would always call him, "Almond"!

You can see more from our trip to India including a bunch of videos at http://www.stuckincustoms.com/category/travel/india/

This is amazing Mont Saint-Michel towering up into the falling sky in Burgandy, France. It's actually an island when the tide rises. I stayed here overnight and it was totally worth it. You can supposed walk out to it across the mud from a few other angles as well, but I've heard about people getting killed in the rising tide when they get stuck... so, I did not do that! :)

Shopping in Marrakech, Morocco. Another new photo I just finished... I love these old souks and could spend forever shopping and taking photos in them! :)

Our newsletter should go out soon with more information about our photography events coming up in Dallas and Denver. Stay tuned or watch the events on my FB for more.

It's great that you're bringing user friendly teaching and software to the masses but you can't teach artistic intuition. Just saying.

Another beautiful display at Vivid Sydney. If you go there and have on earphones, I recommend listening to Schpongle! :)

What does Queenstown look like from on top of the Remarkables? Like this! Man, this was a hard hike, and we even took a snowmobile most of the way while in the Remarkables Ski Fields. Beyond that, another 70-floor hike through a very deep snow. I was almost too exhausted up there to take a photo... but it was so beautiful, I took a moment to myself then set up the camera.

We're going back up here in a few days to do another live Facebook broadcast at sunrise, so don't miss that one! :) We have another one coming up on Wednesday behind-the-scenes when I am going to be interviewed on the Paul Henry show.

Here's a shot from Vivid Sydney. I could watch that thing all night long... just mesmerizing! I'd love to see something like this at Burning Man... it reminded me a lot of that whole scene, in fact.

About Me
I love photography and staying up late at night in the dark, post-processing my photos! It's all quite artistic, I suppose. I take it Very seriously; I also take it not seriously at all.

Every day, I share my travel photography on StuckInCustoms.com where I tell a little story and sometimes help people find out more about themselves through the creation of art.  The site also has camera reviews, travel guides, and a growing and fun community.  Join us!

If you want to learn more about HDR photography and fun post-processing, visit my free HDR Tutorial -- Have fun!

Want to know even more?  I get all kinds of questions, so I built an ever-growing About Me page.

Bragging rights
I was detailed in a holding facility by the Chinese military and was able to talk my way out of it, and I escaped with both my wits and my memory cards intact.
