Episode 5 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.

As for Episode 5, join me in "What Happens When You Sit Too Close to the TV"! In this episode, I visit one of the most amazing places in the world, the Deadvlei in Namibia. While here taking photos, I share a story from when he was a little boy and got my first Atari 2600. Which taught me something I did not expect about colors.

Share your photos and discuss this Episode in Trey's Funky Lounge at or get the whole series at

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 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.

Microscopic photography is truly extraordinary
Watch how Levon Biss creates 10,000 microscopic photos of single insects and composes them into extremely large and detailed images that can be printed 3 meters high.
This is meticulous work that goes beyond just photography. It is educational in a much broader sense as it gives the general public a microscopic view of creatures they wouldn't normally appreciate.
Enjoy & Share

The Golden Gate bridge. San Francisco
Original taken with a Nikon N75 on Kodak Portra 160 film.
Darkroom print from paper negative through texture (and crazy filtering too) 

Its never easy to photograph landmarks so I usually avoid it. But on this particular day the colors, the sky, the crisp air, just seemed so perfect to photograph the Golden Gate, So I did.
When printing this photo I knew I need a different approach or I'll get stuck with yet another boring image of the Golden Gate. So I decided on taking it to the 70's and make it look just the way I've imagined it back then.
