The Colorado/Utah night skies are among the darkest in the country. Don't believe me? Check out http://www.jshine.net/astronomy/dark_sky/ to see an interactive light pollution map and you will see all the dark areas nearby. This leaves a fantastic opportunity to do a photoshoot under the Milky Way.
What is included:
A) Transportation to a site of your choosing up to 2 hours away. It is recommended to be at least 30 minutes from Grand Junction.
B) A 2-3 hour shoot. Approximately 15 minutes will be done shooting you and the rest is done shooting the Milky Way.
C) A high resolution digital file of the resulting image
D) A 12 x 18 print on metal
The process: To ensure the absolute best results it can take up to 2 hours to get a single image which is why only 1 picture is guaranteed. If time allows I can take more, however. Each picture will be panoramic meaning it will be very high quality, generally being about 30-50 megapixels which allows for huge prints if you ever choose to do so. Further, I use high-tech gear that actually follows the stars so I can take much longer pictures without getting any trailing in the stars. This ensures incredible detail in the Milky Way. Lastly, I use advanced processing and blending techniques that takes up to another 2 to 3 hours to edit each picture.
The price: $450 per shoot, however this can be a shot of an individual, couple, or group. Price does not change based on group size, but I can only hold up to 4 other people in my vehicle.
I plan on living in Grand Junction for only another 3 months so this is a great opportunity for a truly unique picture. I will only have time for 2 to 4 shoots meaning space is extremely limited so contact me as quickly as possible if you are interested.
Please message me on my Facebook page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name on the wait list. There is no commitment and you can cancel at any time up to 2 weeks before the shoot. Payments will be made at the shoot itself.
Do not hesitate to message me with any questions or comments.
