This on-location night photography workshop is dedicated to introducing you to how to capture incredible shots of the Milky Way.
The night workshop will take place during the new moon allowing us to shoot in a completely dark sky.
With no light pollution from the city lights the dark sky offers the perfect opportunity for some awesome Milky Way astrophotography!
Your camera can capture much more detail than what we see with the naked eye – you will be amazed at what is revealed in that first 30-second exposure!
This workshop includes:
a sunset shoot at the Pinnacles during golden hour;
a night shoot at the Pinnacles to capture the Milky Way;
and an optional dawn shoot at the Cervantes Ice Cream Sand Dunes (surcharge applies).
Note: A full gear and accessories checklist will be made available to workshop participants after booking. If you are unsure whether the gear you have is suitable or not, feel free to email me.

Accommodation & Transport
You will need to arrange your own accommodation and transport.
As this is a night workshop (4.30pm -10.00pm), I suggest you organise accommodation in Cervantes for the night. You will also be responsible for getting yourself to the meeting point at the Pinnacles Carpark for a 4.30pm start.
If you are interested in sharing accommodation to save costs, let me know and I will put you in touch with other participants wishing to share.
