About Trey Ratcliff

Trey Ratcliff (born July 7, 1971) is a blogger, author, and photographer from Austin, Texas specializing in HDR photography. He was born blind in his right eye, and he has stated that this fact has likely shaped his interest in photography, specifically HDR. His photography is focused on travel, featuring locations in the United States, Japan, France, Argentina, China, Russia, Iceland and New Zealand. His work has been represented by Getty Images, been featured on the BBC, ABC, FOX, CBS, and NBC. Ratcliff studied computer science and mathematics at Southern Methodist University until he graduated in 1995. Originally a hobbyist photographer, he started exploring HDR because he was disappointed that the landscape photography he had done did not appear to be how he remembered the scene. After exploring and developing numerous techniques in the then relatively obscure HDR method, he started blogging in 2005 on the website Stuck in Customs and featuring his work.
