Astrophotography Nightscape Workshop

Astrophotography can be a tricky yet very rewarding form of photography. Join Nikon in an interactive course to discover how to capture the perfect nightscape.

Experience the opportunity to learn astrophotography from photographer, Steven Morris.

Steven Morris fell in love with photography by staring at the night sky through a telescope, since then photography has taken him on many journeys.

He has inspired and taught many people how to photograph the night sky, who now wow their friends and family with their own photos.

Photographing the night sky for Steven is more than a passion, “it’s my life! With every photograph captured you’re combining the present with the past.”

Join Steven for an evening astrophotography specialist class for beginners, focused on capturing the perfect nightscape. Learn how to focus on the stars at night, what to look for in lenses, exposing correctly and reading your histogram.
