Spain, Va­len­cia Tele­scope:

Vixen VSD 100 f/3 “Hav­ing had a back­ground in the arts and work­ing pro­fes­sion­ally as a cin­e­matog­ra­pher and light­ing cam­era­man, as­tropho­tog­ra­phy made for a nat­u­ral change in fo­cus. I had al­ways wanted to turn my cam­era to the skies. A move away from Lon­don to Va­len­cia, Spain pre­sented me with the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to do just that.

“The com­bi­na­tion of ex­plor­ing deep space and the cre­ative and tech­ni­cal art form that is as­tropho­tog­ra­phy of­fered a pow­er­ful and al­lur­ing vo­ca­tion. Any clear night I can be found set­ting up un­der dark­en­ing skies for a night of pho­tog­ra­phy, and who knows, per­haps a new dis­cov­ery.”
