About me

I have always been fascinated by the stars. I can even say that as a child I was in awe of the night sky. Over the past few years, I have dedicated much of my free time to capturing the magic of the night sky and the Milky Way in particular.

The peace and seclusion that the night affords me as I shoot makes me feel intoxicated by the beauty and mystery of the glowing stars and planets overhead, but also humbled and grateful. It turns out that many people have never seen the Milky Way with their own eyes, which is infinitely sad. Standing under the Milky Way Arch on a warm summer night, surrounded by the sounds of crickets and the scent of lavender, is an experience that is hard to describe or forget.

What continues to motivate me to shoot night photography is the element of surprise. Our eyes are too imperfect to catch the colours and shapes that hide in the darkness of night. When I press the button on the camera and wait for the exposure time I get excited like a little kid. Then comes the surprise and the WOW effect, to see on the camera display in colours and shapes what is invisible to our eyes. This feeling of uncovering the hidden treasures of the night sky and the world around us in the gentleness of the night is a feeling that keeps me alive and truly happy.

I am the winner of many awards from prestigious international competitions for astro and night photography. My shots have been shared by world media such as National Geographic, Forbes, The Guardian, The Times, BBC Earth, Sky at night magazine, Daily Mail, SkyNews, Astronomy pictures of the day by NASA, Bored Panda, PetaPixel, My Modern Met and many others.
