Trey Ratcliff in Portugal
I went there not also to do the photowalk but, above all, to meet him in person because I had no doubt that it would be a defining moment of my life, and not only as a photographer, such is the feeling of inspiration that he projects. And I was not mistaken.
It was well worth having done more than 600 km on that sunday, April 23, and have squeezed his hand and look him in the eyes and feel like a serene shock I will never forget.
We do not meet again (because it's not easy for someone like Trey who is always traveling all over the world), but me and my family always have him in our hearts, and I think he has us too.
I was very inspired by his example that I started at that time to build my new project the Pictury Photo Tour, photo tours and travels in Portugal, idea that I shared with him and to which he gave me all his support, encouragement and affection. What a Guy!
Wish You Well Trey!
José Manuel (and family)
P.S. - One of my photos below, taken at the photowalk in Lisbon was awarded with an Aurora HDR software.
