I answered a few questions for the LAist last night about my recent shoot up in Malibu. Swing over to their site and check it out!

If the timing is right, you can see the Milky Way pass by from inside a Malibu sea cave.

I remember growing up and making wishes every night on the first star that would appear in the night sky. I think part of me still falls back to those memories when I'm out under an amazing sky like this one.
It takes a 4 mile off-road drive and a mile long up-hill hike to get to the Wind Caves in the Anza-Borrego Desert. The desert really is an amazing place. The quietness is something very hard to describe and the darkness is just incredible. I'm not sure I've ever seen the Milky Way shine so brightly. During the hike, with my headlamp turned off, I could barely make out my own hand at the end of my reached out arm. I can't wait to go back and explore even more.
Thank you for looking, commenting, and sharing!

My Sea Arch Stargazer image from Malibu was the Popular Photography Photo of the Day yesterday!

With all of the excitement from the Astronomy Picture of the Day post yesterday, I almost totally missed posting this! Certainly not a bad day!

Today's Photo of the Day was captured by Jack Fusco in Malibu, California using a Nikon D800E. Although Fusco [regularly photographs](http://www.popphoto.com/how-to/2014/08/how-to-plan-your-night-photography-perfect-star-trails) the starry night skies of the east coast he says this was his first time shooting the Milky Way over the Pacific Ocean. Although we are always suckers for a good astronomy photo, we liked that Fusco decided to include a h...

Malibu, California - Who would ever want to sit at home when you can find a nice seat like this to stargaze?

It was really exciting to shoot the Milky Way over the Pacific Ocean for the first time. I've been loving exploring all of these new locations out here on the West coast. Thanks to my good friend, Russ for taking a few seconds to climb up and relax on top of that arch. More from here soon!

Malibu, California - Looking at the Milky Way from inside a sea cave. As soon as my obsession for finding sea caves started, I was hoping I would find a location to take a shot like this. I can't tell you how excited I was when I saw this shot on the back of my camera. Definitely an amazing night.

I've used all sorts of resources to help find new caves to shoot. Anywhere from Google Maps, a simple image search, to spending the afternoon walking up and down the coast looking for spots with potential. It can certainly be a lot of work, but it's definitely worth it. Hope you guys enjoy it!

Thanks to Nikon for the recent Instagram post! It's pretty exciting to have a shot featured on their official page!

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.
