Besides my Milky Way book and fine-art prints, I offer a variety of services. I'm based in Seattle, and am happy to call the Puget Sound area and the east-slopes of the Cascades my home! If you're out of that area, I'm available to travel depending on the circumstances. Please contact me and let's discuss!

One-on-one Night Sky Photography Instruction

Learning to take compelling night sky photos is a challenging and long journey, but a great coach can help! I'm available for one-on-one instruction to help you master the basics or take your night sky shots to the next level. From planning and prep, to field technique, to post-processing, there's a lot to learn and I can help you achieve your goals.

The most popular type of session I offer is an in-the-field session. This is an end-to-end session where we do it all, starting with planning and prep, taking new pictures, and post-processing them together. Unless you want to focus on one specific thing, I like to take a split-session approach to one-on-one instruction. When we're in the field together, my focus is completely on you and your success. I'll work with you on your shots, your technique, creative decisions, and more. After we're done for the night, we'll reconvene on Skype or in person at a later date to work on post-processing together so that you get the result you're after! 

If you're comfortable with field work but need some help with post-processing, I can help you with that too. Thanks to the miracles of modern technology (aka Skype), I can serve you anywhere in the world! I'm happy to help with all aspects of night sky post processing, from beginner to expert. We can work on your images together, or if you like I can show you how I've processed mine. I can also help with complex processing topics, like tracking, stacking, exposure blending, and more. 

I have limited availability for one-on-one instruction, so please contact me as soon as possible to start discussing your session!
