We made three videos in Milan. One was the photo walk video, which is below. The others are an inspirational one, and one about the city itself. Those are in the process of being edited together as we package them together for release! Anyway, here is the first:
Daily Photo – The Bvlgari in Milan
Well, it goes without saying that the Bvlgari in Milan is next level. Wow. I absolutely loved this place. Every tiny detail was something out of a small dream of perfection. It wasn’t ostentatious in the least. The people there were extremely accommodating and welcoming, especially to our worn and rugged crew. The pool and spa were amazing also. I can’t wait to get back to this place once again. Also, the location was perfect for exploring the city.
My First Time in Milan
One of my first real solo photo trips was in Italy. I remember REALLY falling in love with HDR photography here in the Duomo. Below is my first photo I took there, which was maybe eight years ago or so…
Daily Photo – Back to the Duomo in Milan
And here’s the new one I took about a month ago. They’re pretty different eh? I’m not too judgmental on my older work… I try not to think better or worse, but just different. But then one part of my brain thinks the newer one is maybe just a litttttle bit better! 🙂
New Interview from the Ritz-Carlton
Here’s a link in the Ritz-Carlton Journeys magazine that talks more about the nature of the tour we just did in Europe. I hope you enjoy the photos, if nothing else! 🙂
Today’s photo of Milan doesn’t really match up with the top article because there is no Ritz-Carlton here, but there is an amazing Bvlgari hotel where we stayed. I’ll have to attach a photo of the pool soon!
Daily Photo – The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan
I took this one on our photo walk. It’s funny because a lot of times on the photo walk, I am too rushed to get a decent shot. But it worked out well in this situation! This is actually two different shots, stacked vertically in a vertirama. I have a new video coming up for Passport Members that shows a new technique for stacking photos! 🙂
I’m doing TEN (count ’em 10) free photo walks across Europe… also a few special day-long workshops. Wanna see the list of places? Come check out the new site at 80stays.treyratcliff.com!
See your city? Tell your friends! 🙂
These photo walks are family friendly events and all are welcome. Bring a friend or two! 🙂 Anything from a mobile phone to a DSLR will do swimmingly. I share lots of tips and tricks, do Q&A, and more… even better, we get to roam part of the city taking photos together. Come on out – I can’t wait to meet you! 🙂
Here is a church in Rome that I grabbed in HDR. The stained glass came out nicely. If you click on the image beneath it, you can see my entire set called Churches of Italy.
Over the weekend we hung pictures up at the gallery. Everything looks pretty sharp and those of you are coming to the gallery opening should see something a bit different, perhaps. I don’t know… impossible to be objective, but I do know it is different than what is usually shown there at Halcyon.
I’ll be showing about 45 pieces. Here is a sampling of the ones at the show. You will notice the first three are exceptionally pointy.

Rush Hour in Seoul:
One Night in Bangkok:
This is a crypt that was buried deep under an old church in Rome. I can assure everyone that this is one spot I was NOT supposed to be, and certainly NOT with a camera, and definitely NOT supposed to be listening on my iPod to 80’s pop tunes.
I have also put this in my Churches of Italy set. The picture below from the Duomo in Milan also links to that set if you have an interest.
