Since I was a child, I have had a fascination with the unknown world in the night sky above. When I was young my father worked for NASA and always shared stories with me about his work and the vast emptiness of space.
This stuck with me.
I was consumed by our galaxy and the galaxies that surrounded us.
I was fascinated by the sheer amount of stars you could see on a clear night.
I was perplexed by the amazing world of star and astrophotography.
I was hooked.
From the moment I picked up my camera and started taking photos, I have been chasing after perfecting this art form. Below is my progress, from the beginning, as I attempt to better my skills in an attempt to capture the perfect shot.
Please keep this in mind as the first few star shots are the beginning of my journey.
