Watch Hans on Netflix!

Daily Photo – Hans Zimmer in Concert!

I was lucky enough to see my friend Hans perform twice in Europe. Once was in Hungary and the other time was in Germany. Both concerts had a lot of similarities, but I was surprised how much Hans ad-libbed a lot of the stuff he was saying between each song. He was especially popular in his hometown of Germany where the fans went absolutely nuts.

I ended up with about 50 (or so) good photos of the two concerts and made a special book just for him and his crew.

Stuck In Customs: Three Girls Sit in an Impossible Library

China Daily Article

While I was in Shanghai, I was interviewed by the biggest newspaper in China, the China Daily. Here is a link to the article.

There are a few factual errors in there, but that’s okay… I don’t think anyone there will mind too much, nor will they see this, since I am pretty sure my blog is still banned in China. That is too bad because I actually have lots of nice things to say about the place and lots of pretty photos of China! Oh well.

Daily Photo – Three Girls Sit in an Impossible Library

How amazing is this library? I made a special point to go here while in Tianjin, China. It’s almost an hour outside the city, but it’s totally worth it. There are some secrets about this library I won’t tell you, but you would thank me if you actually knew the secrets! Anyway, it was full of lots of young girls who were taking way more selfies than reading books.

Stuck In Customs: Fine Art Prints for Passport Sunday!

The Final Touches

Thanks again to Curtis and the rest of the team for getting the new site finished at www.TreyRatcliff.com! I think it’s looking pretty spiffy. The blog here is very casual… I talk in a very normal, laid back way… hey that’s how I really am! But for our Fine Art site, I wanted to make it a bit classier, you know. I mean, I’m a classy guy and all. Well, kinda.

Anyway, if you’re a Passport Member, you’ll see a video today where I talk all about how we price prints, how we sell to collectors and this sort of thing. Enjoy!

Happy Collectors

Here’s photos of a few of my prints hanging in homes around the world.

Behind the Fine Art

I’ve never really made a video like this. I’m a bit sheepish about this sort of thing, because I don’t like talking about money and this sort of thing. In a lot of ways, I think it can sully things. But, well, business is sort of a way of life. Anyway, in this video you get to hear a lot of details about how we price and sell fine art. Enjoy!
