Moonrise under the Milky Way at Lake Cuyamaca, San Diego, California

I only had a few minutes to get this shot once the Moon had risen high enough in the sky. I needed it to be partially obscured by the trees to allow some beams of light to shine down on the water, but not too high otherwise the Milky Way would start to be washed out. It can be tough to slow yourself down in a situation like this one. With such a short window to get the shot you've been waiting on the adrenaline is definitely kicking once it all starts moving in to place. I try to take the time in between each click of the shutter to admire all of the beauty in front of me, 30 seconds at a time.

This was my first night out wearing my new Clydes from Forsake and I was really stoked on them. I can't wait to head back out with them over the next few days and hopefully share some images that show them off a bit better. Be sure to swing by their page and check them out!

Sunset at 1000 Steps Beach, Laguna, California

One of my favorite parts of photography is exploring and finding new places. Where's your favorite place to watch the sunset?

Move over, Canadian Rockies. It's time to shine a spotlight on the stars. San Diego-based photographer Jack Fusco has created a stunning new timelapse video for Travel Alberta, opening up his camera lens to capture the wondrous beauty of the star...

I'm very excited to share my new timelapse, Chasing Starlight!

There's a certain feeling that you get from standing under a truly dark sky for the first time. Although it's hard describe the exact feeling of awe that's felt, it's an experience that doesn't leave
you. In fact, it's something that can change you. It can make you forget about sleeping when the sun has set and instead readies you for an adventure.This timelapse is about capturing the adventure of chasing star filled skies and the feeling you get from experiencing it. I hope it inspires people to find their own adventure chasing the stars.
I hope you enjoy it! Please share and help spread the word!

It's brilliantly atmospheric. I could watch an hour if that on a big screen. Better still, in a sleeping bag under those stars

Endless Wonder - Island Beach State Park, New Jersey
It's hard to compare the feeling you get standing under a dark sky. One of my favorite nights came while shooting this image. This shot shows the Milky Way shining over the historic Judge's Shack in Island Beach State Park, New Jersey. The shack is believed to have been built in 1911. It took nearly a year for everything to line up to finally get this shot last Spring. This was a photo from that session that I never posted. Hope you enjoy it!

Star trails at Clark Dry Lake in Anza Borrego Desert, California

This star trail image comes from my first night out shooting in the Anza Borrego Desert. The quietness of the desert was a huge change of pace from listening to the waves crash along the Pacific coast. While I always love shooting near the ocean, It's hard to beat a night out under a truly dark sky. I spent the entire night out shooting and staring up at the stars. As dawn came, I was surrounded by the sound of howling coyotes. I can't wait to go back.

Curious as to how hectic trying to shoot an entire timelapse video in 7 nights can be when the weather just isn't cooperating? Check out this article over at SLR Lounge to see some of my notes from the field and what each night looked like for me while in Alberta shooting Chasing Starlight.

#explorealberta
When tasked with a timelapse project far from home, star photographer Jack Fusco knew there was a lot of risk involved...and luck. What ensued over the next 7 nights was stressful, tiring, frustrating, and absolutely beautiful as Jack chased the stars and put together his most impressive timelapse yet.

Northern Lights over Peyto Lake in Banff National Park - Alberta, Canada

While visiting this spot earlier in the day, I said that timelapsing the Northern lights was on my photography bucket list. I had no idea that later that evening I would be given the chance to make that happen. The Northern lights picked up out of nowhere at put on an amazing show for almost the entire night. I was thrilled to be shooting it all and even more excited that it would be part of my timelapse. One day until Chasing Starlight is released! Keep an eye out tomorrow!

Thank you for sharing and helping more people find my photography!

Story
Tagline
San Diego Based Timelapse / Landscape Astrophotography
Introduction
My photography started as a way to purely document my travels throughout the United States and Europe, but it has become my main form of creative expression. Too often we pass by natural beauty or fail to appreciate the things we are surrounded by every day.

Through my photography I hope to preserve what has been forgotten and renew that which we have grown accustomed to. In recent times my work has focused on the landscape-astrophotography field. This style of photography takes many notes from both astronomy and traditional landscape photography and then combines the two. Hours are spent planning shots out days, weeks and sometimes even months in advance to make sure all of the elements align properly. Being able to capture the sense of wonder and vastness that we can feel while staring out in a star filled sky is a feeling unmatched.

Photography is my escape; it's my peace in an otherwise hectic place. I hope that viewers find the same beauty and serenity in viewing my images as I find making them.
