Three Photo Walks left! Vienna and Budapest up next!

Vienna: Saturday, May 27 | Budapest: Wednesday, May 31

We're hitting the home stretch of the 80 Stays Tour! After a brief stop in Prague, we will roll into Vienna for a Saturday evening Photo Walk on May 27. Then it's off to Budapest to close out the month of May at our only mid-week walk of the tour on May 31. This will the first time a few of the team (including myself) have been to both of these cities, so excitement is building to volcanic proportions on the party bus!

In both cities, we will kick things off with a Pre Party at 6 pm followed directly by the Photo Walk. As always, both events are free! We like to keep the Photo Walk party going whenever we can, so plan on hanging out post-walk to see what transpires. It's always a fun time!

Better together! Get Aurora HDR 2017 and 3 months of Plotagraph Pro+ for just $89!

Offer available until June 4, 2017

You may know that I am an avid user of both Aurora HDR 2017 and Plotagraph. I worked with Macphun to develop Aurora and it plays a critical role in my photo creation process. And Plotagraph's novel ability to animate a photo has allowed me to breathe new life into lots of existing photos in my collection. (If you are not familiar with Plotagraph, check out this tutorial I made.)

Some exciting news... Macphun and Plotagraph got together, and for a limited time, they are offering an Aurora/Plotagraph bundle for an incredible price. This bundle includes Aurora HDR 2017 (a $99 value) plus a 3-month Plotagraph Pro+ Membership (an $87 value), all for only $99.

As a newsletter subscriber, you can get another $10 off (for a total of $89) by using this exclusive Macphun order link along with the coupon code STUCKINCUSTOMS.

Bonus: To help you get started with Aurora, for a limited time you can also get my Complete HDR Tutorial 3.0 (for Macs) for 20% off in our Stuck In Customs store.

If you have been waiting for a good time to try out Aurora HDR and Plotagraph, this is a great opportunity to get it for over 50% off!

Tips for Street Fashion Photography from Milan

Milan was stop 3 on our tour of Europe and we had a cool crowd out for the photo walk where we discussed tips on photographing street fashion. What better venue for that than Milan? Enjoy!

Catching up on Amsterdam and Berlin

We did it! Two Photo Walks in 24 hours! It was tiring (and incredible!), and each Photo Walk had such a great turn out! If you missed the Facebook Live coverage, check it out below...

Here we are winding our way through the streets and canals of Amsterdam, where we were treated to an in-the-wild sighting of the ever-cool Peak Design Everyday Backpack/Messenger combo on some well-prepared Photo Walker.

Below, meet the group at the Berlin Pre Party, some of which came all the way from LA! We even had a group within the group, the Drink and Click crowd, which absolutely sounds like something that I would be interested in! is a personal blog where Trey puts up a new unique photo every day and writes about the art, the technology, and the story of the adventures. Actually, this is Trey writing about this in third person. Both Trey and I appreciate your support very much!

I keep a completely FREE HDR Tutorial on my website. It is a living document that continues to evolve over the years. It goes over everything you need to get started and is a great introduction to the basics of HDR photography and post processing.

Here are some of my favorite photos from Amsterdam and Berlin

Burgermeister in Berlin
Last time the team was in Berlin we asked our concierge for a unique restaurant and they recommended we visit this burger place that used to be a public toilet under the train tracks. Sign us up! And that's where we headed, to the famous Burgermeister. It was a TASTY Burger for sure… while waiting on said burger in said former public toilet, I went across the street to take this photo… you can see the train tracks up above to the right.
Our bus drove all night from Amsterdam to get to Berlin. This is a photo of one of the bars here in the Ritz-Carlton here called Fragrances - upon entry you pick your favorite fragrance then they make a special cocktail based on your choice.
Chillin' on the rooftops of Amsterdam
Hanging out at the pool in Amsterdam before we headed to Berlin for the next events. Thanks again everyone that came out to the Amsterdam and Berlin events - I hope you had a good time!
Fragrance Tunnel
Check this out... a fragrance tunnel! Found this in Wolfsburg before touring the Volkswagen delivery robot tower-thing (yeah sounds strange) but this little tunnel was amazing... about a thousand fresh flowers that slowly spin around you while you stroll through the middle. We spent the whole day here in Wolfsburg at the radical The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg. There's a lot to see, especially if you're a car enthusiast, which everyone in Germany seems to be. I notice a lot of Germans just staring at cars and silently nodding, thinking deep thoughts about the engineering.
The view from the Ritz-Carlton, Berlin
This was taken the last time I visited Berlin. I was lucky enough to stay at the Ritz-Carlton for several nights while I was there. The apartment we stayed in was cray-cray...there was this one secret bookcase that slides back into the wall. That's always a big hit! I feel bad that I wasn't really there long enough to enjoy it… it was such a beautiful spot.
The Canals of Amsterdam
What a great Photo Walk we had in Amsterdam! It was a little cool in the morning but turned out just right for the evening :) This was one of the first photos I took as we rolled into town on our big Party-Bus!
Shootin' Hoops
A random shot of some guys tearing up the court taken while we were walking around Berlin.
The Duchess
A photo from Amsterdam... This is a cool place called The Duchess. It was a wild time in Amsterdam; I'm pretty impressed I remember anything.
