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.

Beautiful Sinking Venice

The sea often starts to flood parts of Venice, and here you can see the start of it.  This was taken the night before our PhotoWalk.  Thanks again everyone for coming last night — what a fun and great group of people!! :)

I thought I'd share this just to Google+... this was a few minutes ago... I decided to get on a boat in Dubai and see where it took me. I have no idea! I didn't understand a single word, but everyone seemed nice so I said YES! Anyway... you may never see me again... and maybe this is the last photo I will ever post of the dockside in a bazaar-souk.  But this is where I am...Hopefully at some point I end up back at the hotel with all my luggage, and then in a few days I'll see you at the photowalk in Venice! :)

Farewell Dubai, Hello Venice for the big Photowalk!  :)

We have actually 10+ photowalks happening this year (all free) — to find out about the Venice one and more see http://www.StuckInCustoms.com/events !

Here's a photo I took last night in Dubai. I was literally kicked out of this place for taking photos (The Armani Hotel in the base of the shaft)... it was quite humiliating, but then I used their wi-fi to do a live broadcast on Periscope. I had the typical argument with security:

Me: "Look at all these people taking iPhone photos!  They're super-high-ISO and grain-city!" 

Him: "Oh, yes sir, mobile photos are allowed."

Me: "Well my photos often come out way better because I have a tripod and can do longer exposures."

Him: "But you are a professional."

Me: "No I'm not — I'm just a dude with a tripod, comon man, be cool.  So low-quality iPhone photos are okay but good photos with my camera are not?"

Him:  "No."

...it's honestly the same conversation I have like 10 times a day... I know these people are powerless, but I'm amazed that I've yet to find a single situation anywhere around the world that thinks differently (the right way)...  What's wrong with people and the way they think?  Am I alone?  All these people look at me like I'm an absolute nut and making an insane argument.

Anyway, 5 seconds into my live broadcast the Ritz Carlton sent me a note and said, "Dear @TreyRatcliff The @RitzCarlton#Dubai #IFC is around the corner and we would be happy to have you take pictures of our property." That was nice!! You guys got it goin' on Ritz Carlton!

The New Passion Meter

Here's a new thing that was just released as part of www.TheArcanum.com - I know we've had a ton of applications (which is awesome), but sometimes Apprentices aren't chosen by Masters... and it is mysterious, yes?  Well now some of that mystery will disappear with the awesome new Passion Meter that we just released.  Check out +Curtis Simmons in the video below talking about how it works.  Good job team of +The Arcanum !!

Last night... walking along the beach here in Dubai.  What a peaceful evening of little waves lapping up on the beach.  This is the beach at the  +Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Dubai.
