I am a hobbyist photographer based in Los Angeles. I work for a legal business management software company and am a black belt / instructor at Kron Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

I’ve been fascinated with the night sky for as long as I can remember, but this ‘Ancients’ video by Nicholas Buer is what really inspired me to venture out and spend more time under the stars.

My night scape images are exposure blends and composites, as I track the sky and often use different focal lengths for foreground and sky.

I currently use:

Nikon D750
Sigma 14-24
Nikkor 70-200
Nikkor 50
iOptron SkyTracker Pro
