The Night Sky

Our Night Sky Workshop is designed to teach anyone how to photograph the night sky like a seasoned professional. We take you to the outskirts of town and teach you how to take spectacular images of the Milky Way and other celestial objects using our cameras and specialty lenses.

Why Don't We Offer Workshops All Month Long? 

The moon plays a HUGE role in what we do. Unfortunately it acts like the sun when we are shooting long exposures of the Milky Way. The workshop dates and times were specifically selected to allow our participants the ability to only shoot in "dark sky" conditions between the hours of 9:30-11:30 PM. 

How Do I Pay and What Happens If There's Bad Weather?

Once you've signed up we recommend that you wait and pay the day of the workshop. You can purchase workshops through our online store or you can pay your instructor directly. We accept cash, checks and all major credit cards. We are at the mercy of the weather and workshops do get canceled. If a workshop is canceled due to bad weather you will be notified 24 hours prior to that workshop cancellation. If the workshop was pre-paid online you will receive a complete refund for the canceled workshop within 7-10 business days.
