Trey Ratcliff’s Mesmerizing Burning Man Photos

When photographers lug their equipment into the desert for the week-long annual Burning Man event in Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada, they do so knowing the risks; the alkaline dust is well known to be a camera killer.

However, for those who manage to figure out a way to keep their precious equipment in working order, the results are almost always worth it.

Thankfully for us, Trey Ratcliff, a self-described “warm-hearted, old-school gentleman explorer”, knew just how to protect his “really cool toys”, and captured some of the most-beautiful Burning Shots we’ve seen in a while. Trey is the man behind StuckInCustoms.com, which has become the #1 Travel Photography Blog on the Internet, and is the first man ever to have an HDR photo hanging in the Smithsonian Museum.

His Burning Man shots are a testament to his skill. Filled with light and bursting with color, his images truly capture the spirit of the festivities in stunning contrast. Employing the HDR method that he is most-known for, Trey is able to capture the scenes of the festival with a level of detail that isn’t often seen, mostly because of all that alkaline dust flying around.

Check out Trey’s Burning Man gallery here, and the rest of his portfolio on stuckincustums.com.
