If you are interested in photographing the night sky including capturing stars, star trails, the Milky Way, meteors and timelapses please join us on one of our workshops, field expeditions or webinars. Workshops are generally multi-day/night events with classroom instruction to help you get the most out of the photographs you capture. Field Events are partial day or Night events where the goal is to capture compelling images on site at some of the most fascinating places we know.

This event starts the Saturday before Easter Sunday and includes instruction and location shooting of sunrises, sunsets, wildlife, star, star trail, time lapse and Milky Way photography. Also includes oceanfront accommodations, professionally prepared meals AND plenty of instructions on photography, photo processing, and more. You'll have free time, too.
We will visit historic and picturesque locations like Hatteras Lighthouse, the Bodie Lighthouse and it's adjacent wildlife sanctuary. The towering dunes of Jockey's Ridge, as well as Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hils (where the Wright Brothers made their first flights). We'll take a ferry to Ocracroke Island where we can visit truly huge unspoilt stretches of beach, try our hand at the Ocracroke Lighthouse at night and take unusual images from aboard the ferry as it heads back at night.
During your free time you can arrange to hang glide at Jockey's Ridge, race go carts at Rodanthe, take an aerial tour of the Outer Banks, play golf at an area course or opt for a sport fishing excursion. Unwind and let the awesomeness of the place unkink and relax you.
