Illuminated Sunflowers

When my Dad came to visit Colorado a year ago, I got to show him my work in a local gallery.  He was immediately drawn to this photograph I had on display titled "Sunflowers Forever".  He also really liked how I had one of my starry night images appearing in a very compelling presentation using illuminated acrylic.

With that, he said "Michael, I think you should try one of these sunflower pictures with the illuminated acrylic."  I wasn't fast in making it happen, but with his help, I had it made and got it hanging in my favorite local gallery - Gallery At Studio J in Denver.  Unfortunately, someone decided it was so gorgeous, that they bought it before I got in to take a picture of it - providing confirmation of my Dad's good taste, I guess!

I joke about someone buying it too quickly, but it really was great news.  This turned out to be the biggest and most expensive piece I've sold yet - something I'm very happy to share.  Thanks Dad!  :-)

Have You Ever Tried Light Painting A Dinosaur?

Sign up for one of our 5 day workshops in Moab and you'll get your chance!  Thanks to our marketing relationship with Moab Giants (an open air dinosaur museum north of Moab), we're able to include a visit where our group gets full, private access to their half-mile-long trail with state-of-the-art, full-size reconstructions of dinosaurs under starry night skies.

If this sounds even remotely interesting, don't hesitate!  It is an amazing experience and you won't want to miss it!  More pictures coming soon...

5 Night Events in Moab in 2016

Headed Home With Big Smiles

Jann Pulfer Ledbetter and Roland White had a great time on our recent night photography workshop in the Tetons and they enjoyed the chance to show it. Now that the dreams have come true and the event is over, it's now time for me to head back to Colorado.

Its a good feeling to know that +Darren White​ and I were successful once again in giving all the students an outstanding experience.

A Night Photography Workshop Instructor Who Makes Milky Way Dreams Come True
Having found his love for photography deep in the tropical waters of the Caribbean, Mike found a great drive to share the wonders of the world with those who aren't so fortunate to see it for themselves.  Now, he uses that same passion to drive himself into the dark of the night in his home state of Colorado and beyond - still with the same underlying mission to share the wonders of the world with those who aren't so fortunate.
Join Mike on a photographic adventure - whether through his images or on one of his night photography workshops.  That's right, you can share the passion and see the techniques that result in magnificent nightscape images.  Either way, you're sure to pick up some inspiration along the way!
For those interested in learning more about his night photography techniques, be sure to check out his training website at  He works together with a training partner (Darren White) to Make Milky Way Dreams Come True in places like Arches & Canyonlands in Utah, Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, and Mount Evans in Colorado.

On their website, you'll find that instructors go above and beyond in sharing all they know to turn students into skilled night photographers.  See comments from their workshop alumni on their Testimonials Page or see the publicly posted Articles & Tutorials for yourself.  Of course, let Mike know if you run into any questions.  He's happy to help.

I've helped people to fully appreciate the beauty of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming as well as the Milky Way and the starry night skies as a whole. And even more significant, I've helped people make their dreams of capturing the Milky Way come true.
