"This is my favorite from 2015 because it took a lot of planning, travel, permits/insurance, etc. and it came out 99% (could have used more moon light) as I had planned. I was so excited to be at Cliff Palace overlook and see the Milky Way arching over the ruin as I had calculated those months earlier. I feel a sense of accomplishment because I think the image captures the timeless quality that I was trying to convey."

"Aurora Over Boise. It is fun and a challenge chasing auroras at this latitude. Addicting. It all came together 6/22, the alarms went off and KP was 8! The moon, Jupiter & Venus added to the comp. I could see the sky was shimmering, and there was a hint of pink. In RAW it is nearly this bright, I dialed down Vibrance to -15, and Saturation to -10. ISO 1250, f/4, 20 sec, 8mm fisheye, D810."

"Not necessarily my BEST nor most popular image of 2015, but the most special memory without a doubt! This was shot during my Artist in Residency tenure in the Petrified Forest National Park. After the park closed at sunset and all guests were "escorted" out, I had access to the entire park. This is the "Blue Forest" area, accessed from the teepees and ending up on the Blue Mesa. A trecherous hike in the dark, but worth it!


Following an old CCC trail up into the Tepees I found this amazing location. In the morning light, this mesa looked like neopolitan ice cream. The geology and pre-history of this place amazes me!

Following an old CCC trail up into the Tepees I found this amazing location. In the morning light, this mesa looked like neopolitan ice cream. The geology and pre-history of this place amazes me! I crossed 4 million years of geological time to get to this area that represents an old river channel from more than 223 million years ago. "Early" dinosaur bones are scattered throughout these grounds.As I sat up on this sandstone watching the stars with my hubby, we experience a magical night - where the memories are more important than the pictures. I can't describe the quiet, stillness I felt sitting there in as the moonlight illuminated the white landscape and was absorbed by the blacks in the valleys. As the sun sat, the bats came out and swooped right in front of my face; the only movement from wildlife I witnessed. No bugs, coyotes, mosquitoes, or anything else. As if we were alone in the ancient world, yet I felt so small under the big sky.


Just the memory of this night was the best part of my residency. I hope to return again and hang out in the old riverbed again." - Melany___

"I consider this as one of my best pic taken in this year. I like this image as it was challenging to shoot and also think creatively to blend everything into a single image, the moon, setting milky way and the fall colors. First the location was challenging to shoot, i had to sit on a ledge with a 30-40ft drop off on 3 sides and in a 16 degree weather. Getting this shot in one go was never going to happen, had to shoot the foreground at low ISO for 10 minutes and the sky was shot with a normal 30 second exposure."

"Since I attended the Goldpaint Photography workshop in Crater Lake, I have been fascinated by the night sky. I’ve been attempting to capture the northern light with a beautiful scene for long. I found this unique location for very good potential of the aurora scene. With several unsccussful attempts, finally I was fortunate enough to be able to capture this image and very grateful and satisfied." - Taken by Yoshiki Nakamura of Seattle Digital Photography.

"This is my favorite because I took the information, planning and preparation that I learned in the workshop, to go someplace and use the skill set. It still didn’t come out as planned but I think that’s just being flexible and adjusting to nature. Years ago I wondered how to do this. Now I’m excited that I know how to do this and can go out and explore more with others."

This is not necessarily my best shot from this year, but I’m pleased with it mostly due to the planning involved.

As those who were on the alumni trip will recall, the weather was not exactly co-operative. (Nor was my airline, who lost my luggage with my tripod.) I stayed an extra night this time but that wasn’t enough, the weather still stayed miserable until the day I had to leave. I booked another trip with a friend to hit Mono Lake and the Bristlecone pine forest, and this time his flight was cancelled delaying our start by nine hours, then the weather turned nasty again… until the day I had to leave.

That second trip was a great scouting trip, and I liked how this tree forked. By compass bearing I was pretty sure I would be able to compose Polaris just above the treetips,... more »

That second trip was a great scouting trip, and I liked how this tree forked. By compass bearing I was pretty sure I would be able to compose Polaris just above the tree tips, forming a nice triangle. It took me a few months to get back, but I was finally rewarded by three perfect nights of clear skies and relative warmth. I had not realized that there was a flight path low on the horizon, which made for a lot of erasing of star trails, but I did get this shot on the last of the three nights I had there. And as expected, Polaris lined up exactly as I had hoped.

"This is my favorite, for sentimental reasons as much as anything. I try to include one or all three of my dogs in my travels, which quite honestly make night photography in the backcountry quite challenging. For the Perseids I had a permit to go backpacking in the southern Sierras with one of my dogs but when we got over there the smoke from the Rough fire was really bad. So I went to Plan B which entailed going home for my paddle board and heading out on a different adventure. I paddled out to a small island in the middle of a lake in the Sierras, with my dog, camping gear, and camera gear. We had the island to ourselves, and photographically I had the good fortune to have some campfires on the far shore to make the image a little more interesting.

"Enter into the Magic of Night"

My nephew and I had planned a week of night sky adventure in hopes of an aurora in Alberta ~ weather forecasts for the area were disappointingly cloudy, but the skies cleared about an hour north of Edmonton. Our first plan (using various tools to scout with no time to visit) turned out to be in the middle of a reservation and not feeling comfortable with the intrusion, we headed north and noticed a sign for West Cove, which sounded like water, and found a boat launch. The first night was a simple arc of aurora with clouds. Two nights later, it cleared again and we knew just where to head. We were treated to this magic cathedral of light.

The mist over the lake muted some of the shoreline lights and made the island look like a mystical kingdom. The dance went on for hours and the feeling it evoked was profound. The KP index (that often indicates the strength of an aurora) was 4 to 5. I was happy to capture both stars and aurora. As a side note: On my last night, my brother came with me (my nephew had to work) ~ we were just thinking we should bag it and the lights danced at KP 7. It was overhead in every direction like it was swallowing us (unfortunately where my tripod didn't do it justice even with my widest lens ~ it looked way cooler with the lake as foreground)___

'The Road to the Milky Way'

Catching a clear night during the summer at the CA coast can be a challenge. The coast often fogs over at sunset and into the night. I have made many attempts to photograph the famous Bixby Bridge. But last summer, I was lucky and not only was the night sky clear, there was little wind which made being out until almost midnight much more pleasant. A strong flashlight aided in the light painting since the bridge was quite a bit away. I am pleased to offer this image for inclusion into the alumni group image collection.

This year started with a huge change. After 25 years in Western Washington we said good-bye and moved to Hawaii. Sadly, Oahu suffers from awful light pollution, and makes night shooting a constant challenge. A trip to the "Big Island" was a welcome change. This year I was able to see active lava lake bubbling from Kilauea main crater. In this image the lava glow trails into the stars and reminds me just how amazing a place this is.

Ideal weather conditions and the spectacular geology of Arches National Park gave me the opportunity to capture a variety of night sky photos that I really liked. But this photo of Broken Arch was my favourite. The arch itself was impressive, and the Milky Way provided the perfect background. Then it all came together as the moon rose above the horizon out of frame, providing enough natural light to beautifully illuminate the scene.

We spent a lot of time saving and planning. We tried to make a Plan B for what to do if the main plan went wrong. But what if you did everything under your power to achieve success and then go down swinging anyway?

Flash Point

Points of light flashed over me in an interminable stream, as the faint rounds of silent fireworks dropped into the void.

This image is a composite of all the meteors captured on August 13, 2015, during the Perseid Meteor Shower from Mount Shasta, CA. All of the meteors were captured from 12:30am – 4:30am and the composite contains roughly 65 meteors.

Flash Point

Points of light flashed over me in an interminable stream, as the faint rounds of silent fireworks dropped into the void.

This image is a composite of all the meteors captured on August 13, 2015, during the Perseid Meteor Shower from Mount Shasta, CA. All of the meteors were captured from 12:30am – 4:30am and the composite contains roughly 65 meteors. The large mountain in the distance is Mount Shasta and the glow from the base of the mountain is from the city of Mount Shasta.

We constantly receive technical questions via email from our aspiring supporters on the inter-webs. Inquiries generally include a vast spectrum of subjects ranging from ‘How do I find the Milky Way’ to ‘how can I safely hike in the middle of the night’? For the majority of those who cannot actively participate in our workshops, we are beginning a series of simple and basic, informational tutorials that may help answer some of the most asked questions we receive. For our first topic, we’re going to address our most popular question: how do I find the Milky Way in my area? http://bitly.com/findthemilkyway

As usual, +Shawn Reeder continues to inspire. Make sure to take a few minutes to check out his latest film, 'Eternal Spectrum.' 

I'm so excited to share my latest film with you! Eternal Spectrum is a collection of dramatic, beautiful timelapse footage gathered as I traveled to some of the most amazing National Parks and locations throughout the American West & New Zealand. I love being out under the stars, watching the moon light up the sky and landscape, the colors of sunrise and sunset, the energy of storms, the magnificence of the sun as it touches the horizon, hiking the trails, climbing the mountains, playing in the ocean, and just getting to experience the awe inspiring beauty of our National Parks and other amazing locations both here & abroad. I hope you enjoy, and sharing is always appreciated!

This image was taken last year during a workshop at Mono Lake, located in the Eastern Sierra. Due to a fairly dry year, lake levels were pretty low allowing a different perspective of these tufa (pronounced toofah) formations than previous years. During a good snow year, these large tufa structures have water covering the entire base of them and more. Normally I don't even have my camera out while teaching, but since it was an intimate group and each participant was busy exploring the area, I decided to get a few shots in before the sun set behind the Sierra Nevada Range.

Have a great weekend all!

I've been trying to capture an image of the moon rising behind Mount Shasta during sunset for some time. I used The Photographer’s Ephemeris (TPE) to help plan exactly where I needed to be to get this shot. I was hoping for alpenglow, but unfortunately clouds prevented that from happening. Regardless, I love the way the moon is positioned and the way it glows in this single exposure. The time-lapse was a big hit at our opening at the Gallery in Mount Shasta last weekend.

Illusion of Lights introduces you to the concept of movement and time that visually explores our night skies. Beginning with the dazzling chaos of urban light pollution, the film takes you on a magnificent trip across pristine wilderness areas and shares with you the wonders of our night skies. With hundreds of thousands of gorgeous images produced especially for this project, Illusion of Lights gives you scene after scene of unique and detailed views from locations few will ever encounter. Fly over high altitude peaks, soar with the wind, and follow the Milky Way as it dances through the afterhours. From beyond the stars to beneath our feet, each time-lapsed sequence gives the viewer a visual narrative that attempts to communicate what the artist experiences each night in the field; natures expressions of human curiosity and ambition.

Brad Goldpaint spent 3 years of creative exploration crafting visual metaphors which reflect aspects of existence that are often hidden from everyday sight. We interact with these miracles on a daily basis yet we are amazed at the infinite magnitude of our planet. We encourage you to raise your eyes towards the night sky. Explore. Realize you are a part of the illusion and the universe is a part of you.

It still hasn't snowed where we live in Mount Shasta. Instead of waiting for the snow to come to me, I decided to go up and meet the snow. After a brutal climb up 3,500 feet in 3 miles, I was blessed with this beautiful view all to myself. The lake hadn't frozen over yet, put there was a small cluster of ice that stirred in the water. I was lucky enough to have clear skies throughout the evening for some much needed stargazing and then this spectacular light show in the morning. 

It feels good to be home!

2015 Night Sky Photography Workshops

Our 2014 workshop season was a huge success! Students came from all over the world and learned how to capture our disappearing night skies near some of the most spectacular scenic locations in the western US. Many left with an increased sense of awareness about light pollution and the effects it has on our wilderness surroundings. They also forged new friendships with like-minded individuals for continued collaboration and support once they left our workshops and began using their new techniques with their images at home. 

The public’s response has been so positive and we get daily inquiries about conducting workshops in 2015. Although we have committed ourselves to a long-term project next year, we will open enrollment to a very limited amount of 3-day workshops to accommodate demand.

We are settling in nicely in our new home in the woods of Mount Shasta and preparing for winter. It's so nice to be home, under a log cabin roof, after living in a motor home for a full year. I've been very busy going through the footage I captured throughout the last few years and am looking forward to sharing more with you all in the coming months. Until then, here's an image from the Three Sisters Wilderness captured back in August.

We will be announcing the dates and destination for a few workshops in 2015 soon, so make sure to sign-up for our newsletter here (http://eepurl.com/kfeA9) so you don't miss out. I will only be teaching 3 workshops during the entire year due to a long term project we have committed ourselves to... more on that later.

This year we instructed over 90 eager participants from all over the world about how to capture the night sky. Our alumni are applying their new skills they learned in our workshops to various inspiring locations and we are very impressed with the results coming in. 

One of our most enthusiastic students, +Sashikanth chintla took his first workshop with us last year in Central Oregon. He not only came with a deep desire to learn, but also deeply respects and understands how precious dark skies are becoming.  Through a lot of hard work and determination, he quickly progressed not only in still imagery of the night sky, but also in time-lapse photography.  Before joining us again in Glacier National Park for his second workshop with us, Sashi set off on an inspiring adventure for 12 consecutive days.

He drove close to 3000 miles in search of epic locations around the country and practiced his craft. One of his locations included this gorgeous image of the Palouse Falls in Washington. We are told that later this year, Sashi will be compiling all of the footage he captured from his travels to create a time-lapse video. We are confident that his enthusiasm and dedication will filter through his work, so make sure to add him to your circles and check out his website at www.chintlaphotography.com.

We will post more images from our alumni next week!___

The aurora borealis over Sparks Lake in Central Oregon was one of the most incredible scenes I've ever witnessed and I still can't believe I was lucky enough to capture it. If you missed it, you can see the time-lapse video here: http://bit.ly/sparksaurora

The sun was very active a few days ago and unleashed a powerful X class solar flare; the same kind of flare that created this spectacular light show at Sparks Lake. Sky watchers, even those at mid-latitudes, should be on the lookout for auroras in the coming nights.

When in doubt, head out, and look to the poles.
