    “I got my start in photography while I was touring with a band I played in at the time. It was a way for me to document and explore all of the places I had been traveling to. After I stopped touring, I began to take photography more seriously and expand what I was shooting. Living near the ocean, I focused on seascapes for about a year before I really started to experiment with shooting the night sky. More recently I’ve returned to the ocean, but this time at night. Being able to sit out on the beach under a star filled sky and capture that is very exciting for me. There’s something peaceful and beautiful about it that pulled me in and has only grown since.

    I travel pretty light as far as equipment goes. I currently shoot with a Canon 7D and carry two different wide angle lenses and a few filters with me at all times. If I’m trying to capture as much light as possible at night, I’ll use my Tokina 11-16 f/2.8. For any other situation, I’m more than likely to shoot with a Canon 17-40 f/4L. I carry a few different Singh-Ray graduated ND filters and a B&W ND110 for any shooting during the day that I might end up doing. I have a Slik Pro 500dx tripod that I use for both day and night shoots. I’ve found it to be a good middle group between sturdy and light weight, making it a good choice to travel with.

    I try to get out and shoot as often as I possibly can. Shooting the stars is something that requires a good deal of planning, but also flexibility. A clear sky that wasn’t in the forecast often means a lot of last minute changes to your sleeping schedule. In addition to keeping an eye on the weather, the moon phase and air quality for the evening play a huge part as well. Living on the east coast of the United States means dealing with a lot of humid evenings in the summer months that make shooting at night a difficult task. In the end, every sleepless night spent out chasing dark skies is completely worth it and certainly a bit addictive as well.”
