You will leave this workshop with a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to compose, shoot, and edit striking images of the Milky Way and the night sky. Jason and his team will teach you everything you need to know, from planning your shoots, to successfully capturing your images, and bringing the images to life with post processing software. 

The advanced astrophotography workshop builds on the foundation you need to go back out, work your camera, and take dramatic pictures of the heavens above. We will teach you some of the finer nuances of night sky photography. You will learn years of knowledge in a matter of days.

"I had really high hopes and expectations going into your Big Bend Advanced Astrophotography workshop, and it exceeded every one of them.   
This was truly a 'workshop' versus a 'photo tour' in that Jason gave us tutorials on his digital workflow which was extremely helpful to me.  Jason also helped us all by getting us in the best position to shoot the Milky Way,  and by suggesting starting points for our exposure settings.
The photos I came home with just blew me away.  I shared my favorites on Facebook and the reaction from my friends and their friends was overwhelming."
