About the Author

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. 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. 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 Science Focus and many others.
