Heff Swooping in to Bring Supplies

Tonight in Philly!

See everyone for the photowalk tonight in Philly! I hope the whole crew from Sunny in Philadelphia shows up to join the party!!!

Ever in Te Anau, New Zealand

Be sure to look up Heff to take an epic flight around the Fjordlands!

Daily Photo – Heff Swooping in to Bring Supplies

We were So Far Away from civilization out here on the main continent of Antarctica, that it was more than a bit daunting. Every so often, the New Zealand base would send out Heff to bring us supplies, food, and goodies. The worst part about his job is we’d always have to load up his chopper with all of our human waste. So, that’s what you see flying away there with Heff…

Quick video from New York!

Just got to New York and visited a gallery in Soho that has a print hanging in it… see my Robot Daughter Scarlett and more! Haha… Getting ready for the big Photo Walk tomorrow.

Daily Photo – Ouissal in Venice

I was with my friend Simon almost every day in Venice. We had a truly great time all over the city, and we were often on these boats. His girlfriend Ouissal was with us too, and always looking mega awesome… I ended up getting about 100x more photos of her than Simon.

Almost Taking a Midnight Dip

Packing for the USA!

Here’s a silly and random video we made a few hours ago…

Deep Dive Video

Here, you can see me talking a bit more about the bag, the inspiration, and even more! Thanks again to our amazing partners at Peak Design! :) Check the Kickstarter page here.

Dubai Nightwalking

If you do ever make it to one of these very hot places like Dubai or Vegas, I recommend sleeping a lot during the day and staying up a lot at night to take photos. Not only is it cooler, but often everything looks more awesome and the photography comes even easier.

Daily Photo – Almost Taking a Midnight Dip

The water here is not that deep, but it’s very wet, as you’d expect water to be. Sometimes when taking photos I lose track of my surroundings… I almost fell in not once but twice! I had my friend Rene with me and he would have died laughing I’m sure… sometimes I wish I would have just so I could have seen his reaction! :)

From the Autumn Photo Adventure

I took this photo with our group during the amazing photo adventure a few months ago. Be sure to check out our Photo Adventures page to see if there is anything coming up! :)

Daily Photo – Walking Near The Barn at Lake Hayes

This is the little path that runs in front of my friend’s little cottage you can rent along Lake Hayes. It’s about 10 minutes from my house and really awesome… be sure to look up “The Barn at Lake Hayes” and tell them Trey sent ya!

What’s in Trey’s Bag?

Daily Photo – The View From the Top of the Bar

This is the bar atop the Burj Al Arab, which styles itself as the world’s only 7-star hotel. This bar itself is really cool because it juts way out of the hotel and looks like it would be almost impossible, defying physics. When I got inside, I was really shocked at the outrageous and eye-jamming decor! The drink menu was also like 30 pages and totally outrageous… they even had a drink called “The Burning Man,” which of course I had to get!

Walking Around the Glacier

Interview with Scoble

See more about the bag on Kickstarter! This was a quick flash interview I did with Robert Scoble in San Francisco… very fun. Be sure to follow Robert over on Facebook too! :)

We’re editing together video now

Stu and I got a ton of footage down south here… the team is editing it together right now! :)

Daily Photo – Walking Around the Glacier

On another daily hike to the glacier, I came around the bend to see this. Besides the massive nature of the ice wall, I think one of my favorite parts might be those soft-looking giant marshmallows of snow along the bottom. Each one of those is quite massive on its own, often towering over me.

Rainy Colors in Dubai

Thanks again for the Dubai Photowalk

It was great meeting everyone out there… and I’m very excited about our upcoming 13 photowalks in the USA! Be sure to check Tour.TreyRatcliff.com to find out more!

Daily Photo – Rainy Colors in Dubai

As far as I can tell, it doesn’t rain much here in the city. Rene and I happened to be still out after the photowalk when the rain started to fall. We got pretty excited and started taking photos like cray cray. This is a really cool area of town that goes right along the beach. Over to the right is just a 30 second walk out to the ocean.

Aro-Ha from the Trigger Point

Wow!

Thank you all AGAIN for helping us reach such a crazy level of support… holy moly! Here’s the Kickstarter page if you want to join in the fun! :)

Great Workshop Events!

Over on our workshop page, you can see what’s going on now and in the future. I believe this yoga one at Aro-Ha is sold out, but other offerings should be available soon!

Daily Photo – Aro-Ha from the Trigger Point

There are countless hikes around Aro-Ha, and this is one of the easier ones, so I am sure the group that we bring there soon will be doing it. You can see the whole Aro-Ha retreat there on the left and the massiveness of Lake Wakatipu on the right. One of the best things about getting up here is not just the scenery, but it’s knowing you don’t have to go up any more! :)

The Beginning of Lord of The Rings

Set Design

I don’t know how these guys come up with the idea and the know-how to actually build this stuff. It’s very impressive! You can see a little bit of that know-how at work in this video, especially with all the gardeners and everyone working to make things look perfect!

Daily Photo – The Beginning of Lord of The Rings

Remember this little road from the beginning of the first LOTR when Gandalf was on the cart along with Frodo? What a great scene… it brought back all the memories while walking around here. I can’t believe these places are real!

Alone in China

The Last Teaser Video

No need for more teaser videos… since the Kickstarter is less than 48 hours away! Check out http://www.stuckincustoms.com/links/kickstarter

The Chinese Visa System

You have no idea how much trouble I’ve had getting visas into China. Visas are such an antiquated system, and I can’t believe they still exist in today’s world. I know they are ways to get extra money and keep track of you, but there are much more efficient means for doing this nowadays.

Daily Photo – Alone in China

This is absolutely one of my favorite photos from the past year, but I don’t think anyone else likes it as much as I do.
