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.

New City Rankings! And Updated City pages on http://tour.treyratcliff.com !

Huge changes this week!  The Awesome Chicago jumped up to #3 from #5, growing a massive 45.83%!  DC slipped, but remains barely ahead of LA at #4.  All this means LA DROPPED to #5 because of Chicago's aggressive move.  Dallas jumped a spot to #7, passing Miami. San Antonio had the BIGGEST growth of 55.94% to jump from LAST (#12) to #10, passing both Phoenix and Nashville!  This is actually very interesting to me, as I expected everything to stay about the same. Obviously, a few of you are doing grassroots efforts with camera clubs and friends to goose the RSVPs. Awesome and cheeky! As usual, San Francisco and New York seem unpassable (even though New York is only 25 peeps ahead of Chicago!).

Again, all of this is based on Facebook Event RSVPs, which usually represents only a percentage of who actually shows up. If a lot of people come, that's fine! We have mobile speaker systems and a whole plan around it.

Also, please come over to http://tour.treyratcliff.com and visit your city page to see where you'll be sharing your photos and the latest info. If you want to know EXACTLY where the photo walk will be held, you may have to stay tuned till the last day, so stay tuned! :)

OMG how awesome is Google? I know I'm a fanboy... but even, completely objectively, this is supa-magic!  

(and yes, I know other fanboys and fangirls have already seen this, but I just now watched it with my family!)

Here's another scene from another beautiful day in Venice... it's pretty rare to see smooth water there since there's a lot of gondolas moving along, so I made sure to get a lot of photos before one came!

All the Philadelphia details are up for the big photo walk! This is ONE of the 13 cities we are hitting on the bus tour.  See the full tour schedule and city details at http://tour.treyratcliff.com

And remember, if you can't make it to any of the 13 cities, you can still enter by joining our worldwide photo contest. The winner gets to spend an all-expenses paid week with me here in New Zealand! See http://www.viewbug.com/contests/trey-ratcliffs-put-your-best-foot-forward-photo-contest for more. 

We also created a brand new Philly Photo Community at https://plus.google.com/communities/115124118304682064496 — that is where we will have people post photos from the event to win prizes and more. Thanks +Erin Riedel for that and so much else with helping to plan this event!

Here's an amazing video about two of my friends here in New Zealand.  And we're also very lucky to have +Jackie Ranken as a Master in www.TheArcanum.com — I think her whole cohort of Apprentices is having a G+ Hangout right now in fact! :) +The Arcanum +Peter Giordano

When I was in Antarctica earlier this year, I got to spend the day inside Captain Shackleton's hut. It's amazing to think that people used to live in here...  It was very inspirational, actually.
