    I started doing HDR in 2005. I like the way it has evolved.

  • Miami Photos

    Trey…. thanks so much for the textures tutorial. I wish I had more time to find those pictures in my collection that I want to apply this process to. Nonetheless, the basic package is AWESOME and I love how you explain things step-by-step!

  • Rachel Schneiderman

    How do I upgrade my Textures DVD to the full one?
    What is the upgrade cost?

  • HDR Textures

    This is such a useful site, hdr is a blast to do!

  • Stuck In Customs

    THx all… Rachel – you can upgrade any time….pricing is always very fair! :)

  • Glenn Guy

    Hi Trey,

    I ordered your HDR DVD’s. They were apparently dispatch to me on November 3rd, 2010. They arrived while I was away and, as a result, were returned to sender. I wrote to you guys about this several weeks ago. I have yet to receive the disks and am about to leave (Dec 30th) for a 9 week overseas trip. Once again I’II be organising for my mail to be held for me by my local post office. Can you confirm that the disks have been re-sent and, if so, when. If not, we need to either organise for shipment that will ensure they will be held by my local post office (if they arrive after Dec. 30th), or are sent to me after my return on March 7th 2011. I’d appreciate a response ASAP.

    All the best to you and your family over the Christmas and New Year period.

    Kindest Regards,

    Glenn Guy

  • Stuck In Customs

    Hey Glenn – I will forward this to support on your behalf – we’ll get it taken care of! :)

  • Scott

    Hi Trey,

    I found your site tonight and am considering buying your tutorial class. I have a nikon d5000. I downloaded a trial version of photo matrix pro tonight and messed around with it. I have one need with the HDR stuff and only 1 need and wondering if I am going to be able to achieve this by your tutorial package. I am a professional bathroom remodeler. I really would like to take the best quality pictures of bathrooms possible. I don’t want to do HDR crazy stuff and weird stuff (except maybe just messing around for fun)… my real need is to make the bathrooms pop like you are really there with great lighting. If it is of any use to know this- I also have an off camera flash with wireless trigger (sb600) and an umbrella and stand along with a tripod for my d5000. Oh- also… I have the Tokina 11-16 lens for my camera. Does your program provide the necessary information for my needs and is my equipment okay. I really do not have the money to buy any more right now.

    Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you.

  • Robert Berthelot

    Hi Trey, I want to buy your HDR DVD tutorial but I don’t known how to do it ,

    please help me ,thank you very much . Robert Berthelot .

  • Luke Lakatosh

    Hi Robert,

    Head over to and choose the package you want and follow the checkout procedure. You’ll get an email to your PayPal email address (or the one you specify if you don’t have PayPal. Choose “pay as guest” in this case) containing a link to your files.

    The files are quite large (6 x 1 gig) so they’re broken up and may take a bit to download, but if you download the first set of videos along with the first set of homework first, you’ll be able to get started while you wait for the rest to download.

    If you need more help, just email me at

  • John Roberts

    Tell me if I’m wrong, but it seems to me that auto-bracketing (at least with a Canon Rebel Xsi) is the same as taking a properly exposed photo, then adjusting the resulting RAW file’s exposure up or down. Isn’t adjusting the exposure on the camera + or – the same as changing the sensitivity of the sensor in the same way as adjusting the ISO up or down?

    I think changing shutter speed to bracket exposure yields RAW files with new pixel information as opposed to changing the sensitivity of the sensor.

    Any thoughts?

  • Sergey Potalov

    Why When i click on login in app (for iPad IOS 5.1) “Photo Voyages of Trey Ratcliff” I get the error “Login Error – Invalid username”????

  • Luke Lakatosh (SIC Support)

    Sergey – please email me at If you can
    forward over your receipt from when you purchased your upgrade, that
    would be helpful.

  • geraldine whyte

    can you recommend a scanner? I have old family photos I want to scan (1000’s of them). I want fast and high resolution mid price range or is that asking too much?

  • Luke Lakatosh (SIC Support)

    Hi Geraldine,

    Scanners are very inexpensive these days and run pretty good resolution for the price. To be completely honest, your best bet is probably an all-in-one printer/scanner. I like my Kodak Office pro.

  • Geoff Harriman

    I’m a fan of Trey’s work, so I downloaded the “Photo Voyages…” app and made an in-app purchase. Now, however, I can’t figure out how to access the photos that come with said purchase. Nothing about the app itself seems to have changed with my purchase. There are no in-app instructions or, as far as I can tell, instructions on this site. The app contains a link to “subscribe,” but one has to enter a pre-registered subscriber name. Could someone please let me know how to go about redeeming an in-app purchase from the “Photo Voyages…” app? My apologies if there is a more appropriate forum in which to post this request – I did not find one. Many thanks for any help. – Geoff

  • Luke Lakatosh (SIC Support)

    Hi Geoff,
    When you hit the ‘Subscribe’ link, you choose your subscriber name. You can then log-in using that name. The app should have forced you to choose a user name when you were subscribing.

    You can forward along your purchase receipt and details to, and we can get you set up.

  • Amanda

    Hi, I would love a 2013 Calendar of Trey’s work. Does one exist, and if so, how can I order it?

  • Luke Lakatosh (SIC Support)

    Hi Amanda,

    We did not create a 2013 calendar for Stuck in Customs. We may again in the future, but there were too many other projects this year – not enough time in the day!

  • Michael Titera

    Hi Trey! Are you going to come out with a calendar for 2013? I loved your 2012 calendar!

  • Luke Lakatosh (SIC Support)

    Hi Michael,

    There just wasn’t time to put one together this year, unfortunately. The logistics of designing and shipping (all done manually by me) just didn’t fit into this year. Hopefully next!

  • Rick Landry

    Frustrated here. Trying to purchase the 100 Cameras app for my iPad Retina 4G and each time it tells me my bank card info does not match my Bank info. ? Sorry, same card I use for everything. Only have one card. Same card pays for the Verizon service every month. Want that app. What the h___ do I do now?

  • Luke Lakatosh (SIC Support)

    Hi Rick,

    Sorry for the trouble! Unfortunately we can’t help very much with payment on the apps – Apple handles all of that. You might want to check with them to see what’s up –

    It appears the stuck in customs newsletter had died a death. Got one about 4 months ago!!! Nothing since

    Happy New Year Trey ! I just started a new website: with the intent of highlighting both contemporary and past Masters – short biographies and photographer’s website link(s) would be included. No doubt about it, you are my favorite contemporary photographer and I was wondering if I could include a bio of you which would also show viewers your “stuck in customs” link? To get an idea, I also just started another website: and you can view my addition of the “Our Children” charitable organization. I would do something similar with you (please send your own bio if preferred) and if you had any changes I would of course make those changes. Thank for any consideration and have a great 2015! Russ
