Free NightScape Photo Walks in YOUR area
I'm planning to conduct free NightScape photo walks around the world. The locations will be conveniently close to a major city, yet far enough away to provide reasonably good photography of the starry night sky. For more information go to this blog post (http://intothenightphoto.blogspot.com/2015/09/nightscape-photo-walks.html). This photo was taken 2 years ago at our NightScape Photo Walk around Silver Lake (near Brighton, UT). Nearly 100 photographers attending this free event. I invite all our group photographers to suggest future photo walk venues by tagging your favorite astro-landscapes (on Instagram, Facebook or Google+) with the hashtag: #NightScapeWalk (capitalization is not required). Please include the location of your NightScape and any other interesting background information in your photo description. To qualify, locations should be within 50 miles (80 km) or 90 minutes drive time from a major city or metropolitan area (over 100,000 population). Showcasing You: From time-to-time, I will feature some of the best images on my Instagram profile and Facebook Fan page, complete with credits and links to the photographer. Some of these suggested locations may become venues for future NightScape Photo Walks that I will organize and provide free to the public. Looking forward to hearing from you, Royce Bair, Organizer IG: @RoyceBairPhoto ( https://instagram.com/roycebairphoto/ ) Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/roycebairphoto

What we're about

http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/6/1/6/4/event_192864932.jpeg Learn a unique style of starry-night-sky landscape photography from Royce Bair and his guest associates. Meet-ups vary from free lectures and photo walks to location workshops. Workshops vary from overnight location shoots within 100 miles from Salt Lake City, Utah — to 3-day workshops in Utah and Wyoming National Parks. (See more NightScape photos here (http://www.meetup.com/NightScape-Photography/about/).)

My focus is on your success: It's been great to have companies like General Motors & IBM, and magazines such as the Smithsonian & National Geographic use my photos; but right now, I want to help you experience your photo vision, whether you're a novice, intermediate, or a pro. With over two decades of national and international lecture/workshop experience, I know how to excite your creativity and to make techniques easy to understand and master.

Until we met: Here's a YouTube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovYqcXHnwmw) to get you excited about some of the images you'll learn how to take. You can also learn a lot from my Into the Night Photography blog (http://intothenightphoto.blogspot.com/).

More than just "NightScapes": Most of my location workshops also include daytime landscape photography (at sunrise, sunset, and at twilight) during the most photogenic periods of the day. You'll learn techniques that will also improve your overall skills as a photographer. Here is a gallery (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ironrodart/sets/72157620412882586/detail/) of my overall published work.
