Photography allows me to be outdoors which I enjoy, even in the harshest of conditions.
For the last six years I have been designing illustrations and more recently, taking photographs of nature including sunsets, storm scapes and astrophotography. I have developed unique techniques on Adobe programs such as Lightroom, Photoshop and Illustrator to create various media forms for different clients and companies.
I sell limited edition prints nationally and internationally and have been educating photographers via private and group workshops in South Australia. My goal is showcase the beauty and unpredictability of nature and the unknown mysteries of the night sky.
Steven began his passion for astrophotgraphy in 2014 capturing his first deep space image of the Trifid Nebula. Since then Steven has been hooked on astrophotography, with every photo captured he is trying to push the boundaries of his photography knowledge and skill / understanding. In 2018 Steven one his first awards for his nightscape images and in 2019 Steven won the David Malin Astrophotography awards in the nightscape category.
Since then Steven likes to inspire others in the world of astrophotography through his YouTube channel taking people on his adventures and showing how he takes his images.
The best advice given to me was to never stop learning, when you stop listening to advice and feedback, that's when you will stop growing and become stagnated. Wait for the right conditions and lighting to help get that shot.
Hangingpixels Photo ArtHi, I'm Wacharachat, people call me Oat which is my Thai nickname. I am based in the Sydney Hawkesbury area. I started photography in 1995 when I took up an art class in high school. From there, architecture and design related degrees helped me a lot with reading the light, symmetry and lines as well as composition. My style gravitated toward landscape, seascape, snowscape as well as off camera flash, now branching out into drones and astro. Photography allows me to be outdoors which I enjoy, even in the harshest of conditions.
I have always had an interest in photography, but what caught my attention quite a few years ago were some stunning images I saw of tidal pools. That was when I went out and bought my first DSLR. I am currently using a Canon EOS R along with RF 15-35mm f/2.8, RF 24-105mm f/4L IS, 24mm f/1.4L, 50mm f/1.2L II, 85mm f/1.8, 600EX-RT and ST-E3. A few Samyang 14mm f/2.8 and 12mm f/2.8, Sigma 14mm f/1.8.
Photography to me is a form of art that can be so personal that no one gets it, but at the same time it can also evoke feelings within the viewer. To be able to move or inspire someone gives me a great sense of achievement and inspires me to go out and push the boundaries.
I’m grateful to be able to represent brands I love and share what I’ve learnt with others.
Creating epic high quality images for excellent prints is a true passion of mine,

Michael Goh is a full-time photographer located in Western Australia primarily capturing astrophotography, commercial, portrait, time-lapse, photospheres, event, video and aerial work.
He received the international Photo Nightscape award 2015, Western Australian Astrofest 2014 and achieved an APOD in February 2016. He has appeared in numerous publications including photography magazines and science books and periodicals. Michael also runs photography workshops.
One of Michael’s current focuses is improving night sky appreciation and awareness and one of the projects he is working on is part of a documentary team on the night sky in Western Australia.
Phil Hart has been enjoying and photographing the night sky for nearly twenty years. His award winning photos have been published in books, magazines and popular websites around the world.
Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, he developed a strong interest in astronomy and photography. On a student budget through school and university, he built his own Newtonian telescope which remains one of his more successful DIY projects.
As an engineer, he naturally has a strong technical approach to astrophotography and night sky photography but enjoys exploring the artistic side of the hobby as well.
Astronomy and his love of mountains and snow has significantly shaped the course of his life; a solar eclipse in Zimbabwe in 2001 became the trigger for five years living in Scotland enjoying the northern skies and an occasional aurora. Since then, aurora and eclipses have led him to capture the 'Great American Eclipse' over the Grand Tetons in Wyoming and a winter in Canada's frozen Yukon Territory among other adventures.
The same passion also underlies his move to the dark skies of central Victoria near Talbot with his partner Karen. He has one automated observatory there and is 'agisting' another for ASV colleagues.
The ephemeral nature of comets, eclipses and aurora and pushing the boundaries of their photography continues to draw Phil into new adventures, and has resulted in dramatic and widely acclaimed and admired images and videos.

Larryn is a full-time freelance photographer and filmmaker based in Auckland, New Zealand.
He is known for his dedication for capturing landscapes and nightscapes around New Zealand and has built a solid reputation for his unique nightscapes in some of the wildest and remotest parts of the country.
After being one of very few people to ever see and capture the Aurora Australis from Auckland, he has dedicated much of his photographic life to chasing the Southern Lights all around New Zealand and then has seen him travel several times to Iceland to capture the Northern Lights.
Larryn has a passion for the natural world that has seen him partner with leading brands and organizations to help promote environmental issues and conservation awareness.
His goal is to reveal and showcase the incredible wonders of the night sky landscape to those who may never have the opportunity to otherwise do so. He runs workshops and small tours for this purpose as well as selling his prints nationally and internationally.
Alyn Wallace is an award-winning landscape astrophotographer and YouTuber from the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales. His work has been featured by the likes of National Geographic, NASA and BBC Earth and he was recently announced as the winner of the 'Landscapes at Night' category in Landscape Photographer of the Year 2020. Now a full-time professional, Wallace travels the world on his quest to capture the darkest skies and most otherworldly landscapes to share with his online following.
The ultimate goal is to inspire as many people as possible to fall in love with the night sky through stunning imagery and inspiring educational content. This in turn will raise awareness and bring more attention to the importance of dark skies for nature, humans and the planet; the subject of discussion in his recent TedX talk, 'The Devastating Impact of Light Pollution'.
I’ve had a few “ahaaa” moments about lots of things in my life, just as I’m sure you have. I’ve been sharing a few of mine about our place in the universe with groups of people for a few years now.
I bought a telescope. It was big. Everyone wanted to look in it. I started talking, thinking that I was saying things that everyone already knew. “keep talking” was the response, so after a few years of encouragement from friends, fellow business colleagues and interested corporate and individual customers, I started Astro Tours in July of 1995.
The rest is history and Astro Tours continues to delight me in its ability to reach people in powerful yet simple ways while providing me with the means to continue sharing the simple insights that still pour quite regularly into the top of my head. I’m writing a book on a life spent amongst the stars, I’m running star shows, I’m presenting to school groups, corporate groups and to amazingly switched on groups of people who come together seemingly at random to join my regular shows.
Joel Stafford got serious with Astro Nightscape Photography in 2018.
Joel StaffordJoel Stafford started his photographic journey back in 2009, but only got serious with Astro Nightscape Photography in 2018 when he realised that finding time to capture photos in the daylight hours was getting quite hard when you’re a busy father of two kids. Joel made the hard decision to sell his camera gear that he wouldn’t need anymore and poured all the money back into gear that was needed to create captivating nightscape images, which is where his first Skywatcher Star Adventurer came into the picture. For the next couple of years learning the craft Joel entered into his first Astro Photo competition in 2020 (David Malin Awards), where he was quite fortunate to have walked away with two awards, and his images shared through newspapers all over the country, including a “Heart Of The Nation” feature in The Australian Newspaper for his cloud inversion image from Mt Coot-tha in Brisbane. Joel also likes to share his passion for the night sky with others by running Astrophotography workshops for beginners and sharing his knowledge through his YouTube Channel.
