“My fear was that I would be way behind everybody else in the class in terms of knowledge about and skill in photography and that I would feel hopelessly stupid… thanks to your ease in both checking in (does everybody know what XYZ is?) and answering questions, I didn’t feel stupid at all. And in the field, you took plenty of time to check in, and so despite my lack of knowledge and skill, I got some fun shots and a grounding in how to get better… You’re into the scientific aspects of stargazing photography, which is really interesting and (no pun intended) enlightening, and that your patient guidance means that everybody will have fun and come away with photos that they’ll enjoy… Go! Do a workshop with Allison! I’ll join you, because I’m really looking forward to another opportunity.”

“For my part I know nothing with any certainty
but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”
– Vincent Van Gogh
Being under the night sky is awe inspiring, and we invite you to let us take you away from the comforts of light and civilization to share with you our knowledge and passion of photographing of the stars. Being out in the dark alone can be daunting, so why not join a group of like-minded photography enthusiasts and make it a night of learning, new experiences, and friendships.
Starscape and night photography workshops are designed to teach you the fundamentals of what you need to know to get started with photographing the night. We will meet in the field and under the sky to go over and practice together techniques for capturing moonlit scenes, pinpoint stars, star trails, light painting, composition, and how to incorporate landscape elements. Our goal is to make the workshop casual, fun, technically informative, and educational by giving you what in-the-field instruction, assistance and technical expertise we can offer. These small group workshops have limited space and require a digital SLR camera and tripod. A shutter release/remote is not required, but highly recommended.
Space is limited, so reserve your spot now! These night sky workshops run on demand as long as there is a minimum of three participants or on pre-scheduled dates. Get a friend to sign up with you and pick your date together for a unique experience! Workshops are usually 3 hours from about 8-11pm depending on the time of year. Registration investments are $120 or $85 for students with a valid student ID.
