When you look up in the night sky, those specks of light you see worked very hard to get to you. You are physically touching a star through its photons with your retina. Those photons were created perhaps even before our planet existed, in a gigantic nuclear furnace. After spending thousands of years churning inside they burst through the stellar surface to begin their journey through the universe. After billions of years dodging planets, black holes, nebulae, and other stars, they end their journey among the rods and cones of your eye.
Those suckers just hit a target the size of a thumbtack spinning at 1,040 miles per hour.
They sure inspired the heck outta me, and now my passion is capturing those bad boys. My photography isn't wholly "astro-photography," it's an amalgam of different styles and influences that have resonated with me to capture unique images that I haven't seen over and over. This, along with a desire to push myself into new photographic realms, has yielded some amazing experiences and images. I hope you enjoy them.
