Less than 72 hours left to get Peak Design's new Travel Tripod

Only 3 days left to get this NEW Travel Tripod from Peak Design that I've been using all around the world! I've been HARD on this thing. I started with a trip all around New Zealand to learn how to use it in my flow -- there are a bunch of videos on my YouTube channel if you wanna see behind the scenes. Since then, I've started a tour across the USA and come through eight different cities and using it in all sorts of conditions. Day, sunset, rain, night... I've dropped it many times. I've attached a few different cameras and tons of lenses. It's held up perfectly! Anyway, now is the best time to get it because you get a better deal than when it is available to the general public... you know.. the muggles. hehe.

Learn more and buy it now!


Trey Ratcliff Gallery Takeover at Caesars Palace in Vegas

i-9tshZs7.jpg I'm excited to announce that a selection of my artworks will soon be on display, and for sale, exclusively at the Carnevale Gallery located inside of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

We're hosting a huge launch party on Friday, August 16th, and it will be a blast! Come join the fun! The party is free but please let us know you're coming by responding to this Facebook event and we'll get you on the list!

I'll have about ten of my large format prints from both Series 1 and Series 2 on display. You can learn more about them on my site, TreyRatcliff.com. At the launch party, I'll take a few moments to tell you some stories and counter-intuitive thoughts behind the creative process for each of the prints. Hopefully, it will inspire and encourage you to help find your artistic (and maybe true) self.

Along my own path, I figured out a lot about the importance of the dissolution of the ego, being vulnerable, being fearless, and going into every action with love. I know that might sound hokey, but I really mean it. That is perhaps the core theme that runs through all my photos. In the end, I'll do a little Q&A time. Let it rip! Ask me absolutely anything! After the Q&A, we'll have a mix n' mingle. There will be a cash bar if that's your thing. Feel free come up and ask me anything if you were too embarrassed to ask during the public Q&A bit. For those of you that have been to my events in the past, then you know I'm the last one to leave the room in my usual people-pleasing mode!

Check here for more details and to RSVP! See you soon! :)


Triangulation with Leo Laporte

I was recently a guest with Leo Laporte on a fun show they have called Triangulation. We talk all about social media, fraudulent Influencers, and of course how to stay zen on social media. You can get my new book, Under the Influence, that covers these topics in depth over on Amazon.

Reminder: The Text HDR Tutorial is Always Free!

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.


Some recent photos from the blog

Queenstown Gardens in the Autumn
When I look at these photos I took in Queenstown Gardens, it makes me wonder why I don't walk around there every day, especially in the Autumn! It's not actually that far from me... maybe 15 minutes. I guess one problem is parking. Parking in Queenstown is such a huge problem that I barely approach the CBD anymore... If I were in charge of counsel, I would subsidize Uber so that people could Uber around instead of leaving empty cars all over the city. There is nothing more inefficient than an empty car!

Kuala Lumpur from the Traders Hotel Bar
I think the bar on the top of the Traders Hotel has the best view of the Petronas Towers. I tried a few other rooftop bars in the area, but this one is still the best. While I was there, you can see that dark, foreboding Four Seasons hotel on the right. Maybe it wasn't open yet? I can only imagine that because not many lights are on and the sign on top is not lit up.

Tsuruga-jō Castle in Aizuwakamatsu-shi, Fukushima
Believe it or not, I got really good at saying all these super-long Japanese names while I was there! I pretty much had to, since hardly anyone spoke English and I had to navigate the serpentine rail and bus system. I didn't have much time in Aizuwakamatsu-shi, but I wanted to make sure this classic old castle was on the list... It took me down a whole interesting history lesson in one of the many Japanese civil wars.

Walking Along the Glacier
I visited this glacier every day for three days in a row. It was so amazing to be able to walk right up and touch it. I was a little scared, of course, hoping that part of the glacier did not calve off and fall on me! But, it's not melting down here, so there was very little chance of that. Either way, I'll admit, I was definitely on high-alert while being in the middle of awe.

Incredible Moscow
During our New Zealand workshop, I got a request about how I achieved the "streaky" effect you see in this photo. I decided to re-create it with this photo from Moscow! And then, after I was done, I decided I like this photo even more than the original, unstreaky one!
