What People Are Saying

This book is excellent both for novice night photographers and those with experience. Troy reveals many secrets that it has taken him years of trial and error to discover. The book is well worth the price of admission, as it will jumpstart you on the road to successful night photography and provide novel ways of approaching many different subjects. If you already have some experience shooting at night, you will learn techniques that will give your images that extra edge. The book is well written and I highly recommend it."— Dave Evans

Tons of info, great photos, how-tos, walk-throughs etc etc. To all aspiring (and existing) night photographers, how can you NOT afford to buy this? No excuses - it's LESS than ten dollars!!"— John Maher

I really can see this becoming a must read for all photography students, even those not doing night photography–there is a lot of sound knowledge that can transfer across a number of disciplines. Really good."— Ian Shipley

Trey is best known as a pioneer in HDR photography. Chris Anderson from TED called Trey a "pioneer of HDR photography." HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, a technique whereby multiple levels of light are captured for a particular scene and then combined into a single photograph. The resulting images are richly detailed and more closely resemble what you recall of the scene in your mind.

Trey's photo, Fourth on Lake Austin, was the first HDR photograph to hang in the Smithsonian. He has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOXand the BBC, and his photos have accumulated about 1 billion views. His best-selling book, "A World in HDR" sold out on Amazon in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. Using a unique teaching style based on curiosity and discovery, Trey has taught hundreds of thousands of people the secrets to his photography techniques.

Trey grew up blind in one eye, which changed the way he has come to experience and visually map the world. This, combined with his degree in computer science and math, has shaped his unique, algorithm-like, approach to capturing a scene that evokes more palpable memories.

Trey is also a successful entrepreneur. His endeavors include popular iOS and Android apps such as 100CamerasIn1, Stuck On Earth and Photo Voyages. In addition he launched Flatbooks.com, which is a rapidly growing eBook publisher.
