I just returned from Utah, where I brought a group of clients to participate in a night sky photography workshop. The dark skies of Utah near Moab are perfect for photographing stars and the Milky Way, and we were fortunate enough not to have any issues with clouds. For each of our three evenings, we went do different locations where we could compose interesting star shots with silhouettes of amazing rock formations.
I thought I’d share some of my images here. You can see more of them at my Facebook and Instagram pages, too. My upcoming workshops and safaris are listed here.
I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be conducting a photography workshop and tour to Alaska, July 15-22, 2017 aboard Ruby Princess. This is an all-inclusive, 7-night round trip cruise and photography experience from Seattle, Washington. While aboard, we’ll have private photo seminars and we’ll use the ship for creative photo opportunities. We will then have private photo tours/excursions and photo learning sessions with professional guides and myself as your photo instructor.
I’m pleased to announce a winter birding safari to the Florida Everglades, December 13-17, 2015. During this photo safari, we’ll not only photograph the birds and other wildlife, but we’ll have an opportunity to do some night sky photography of the Geminids meteor shower!
This workshop includes both field and classroom instruction, so bring your laptop so I can teach you how to process your photos!
