About my work
Almost everything you can find here relates to my work as astrophotographer. More specifically, my books, educational material I’ve put out there, and, of course, my astroimages!
When you look at my images, what you see is, unless specifically noted, real images of real stuff. They’re certainly edited to my liking, but again, unless noted, my images are not composited, colors may be pushed but never altered (I don’t capriciously change something from red to blue, for example), and nothing in them is AI generated, nor processed through filters that change the mood, colors or even some elements in the image. I do composites from time to time, and I will likely explore AI solutions that aid in the editing, but if and when I do, again, it will be prominently noted. For every other image (well over 95% of my portfolio), you can rest assured that what you see actually happened, that I was there to capture it with my cameras or telescopes, and you’re seeing it through my personal perspective.
Ariana was more than my companion during countless night adventures chasing the stars. A soulmate, a guide and an angel for 32 years, Ariana tragically passed away on July 27, 2021. She had an incredibly creative mind, and no doubt, her talent and creativity touches many of the images presented in this web site up until her passing, and beyond.
After many, many months of deep grief, I was able to reconstruct my life, find new love and continue photographing the cosmos with a renewed passion.
Speaking Arrangements, Assignment, Workshops
I am available for speaking arrangements and hands-on workshops around the world. Topics I’ve covered in the past are anything related to deep-sky photography and night landscape photography.
I am also currently accepting photo assignments that are related to my craft. Travel is ok.
