Astrophotography is a skill thousands of clients and couples are searching for. People obsess over nighttime imagery that’s magical and unique.

If you can master astrophotos, you’ll start booking clients who didn’t stop to give you a second look before. 

Here’s the even bigger kicker: You can find astrophotography tutorials online—but they’re all teaching the same dang thing! The time-consuming, frustrating as heck, in-camera technique. 

And unless you’ve got endless days to spend perfecting that technique, those tutorials are just going to leave you flustered and drowning in imposter syndrome. We don’t want that!
