This gallery contains a collection of images that represent some of the better examples of my astrophotography which will be broken up into the main compositional genres . My intent is that these will be constantly curated so that the content of these galleries improve as my skills and experience grows. There are no immediate plans to sell my images online, however please don’t hesitate to contact me should you see something you like and would like to purchase a high resolution copy with watermarking removed.
Our local galaxy and probably one of the most popular celestial targets for landscape astrophotographers due to its dominance of the night sky. The great rift splitting the bright hemispheres of the galactic centre creates magnificent contrast and beauty on a scale that is difficult to comprehend with light from the Milky Way being so significant that under a new moon it’ll illuminate the landscape in places with little light pollution.
Usually taken over a period of time ranging anything from a few hours to an entire night, star trails give a unique view of the earth’s rotation. Although the celestial poles are a common target for this style of astrophotography, it does offer tremendous composition flexibility which allows for magnificently unique imagery. The trade off is there is very considerable post processing required to get the best results.
Offering a fascinating view into the turbulent beginnings of our solar system, the moon was formed when a mars sized planet collided with earth some 4.5 billion years ago. The debris of this cosmic collision was ejected into space forming an orbit, eventually going on to form our moon. During the Late Heavy Bombardment period around 4 billion years ago the moons surface was pulverised with thousands of asteriods. These violent beginnings have moulded an amazingly raw environment to photograph.
