I will hold a free (open to the public) short astrophotography workshop at 9:00pm on Friday, January 15, 2016 in Big Bend National Park. It will be at the small parking lot at the north end of the Basin road (aka the cell phone lot).

Please join me for five days in an amazing landscape of dramatic desert features and dark skies. I will teach you photography and guide you through the Big Bend area of remote west Texas.

This photography workshop will have an emphasis on photographing the dark, night sky and Milky Way. We will also engage in traditional daylight landscape photography.

I will share my knowledge of the area and give you an in-depth, multi-day course on night photography. I've been visiting the Big Bend regularly for the past 11 years. And I've been practicing night photography for 7 years.

We will learn in the classroom as well in the field. Everyone will have several hours of free time during the day to nap and catch up on things.

The Milky Way is in a different location and orientation at this time of year as compared to the fall (when I usually hold my workshops). It will rise in the east and span over the horizon, and it will offer new and interesting opportunities.
