From planning and composition, to shooting techniques and post-processing, Milky Way photography requires knowledge and experience in many different areas.

However, this is not as easy as it seems…

You have probably already purchased a good camera and lens, watched countless tutorials and Milky Way photography videos on YouTube, and tried your best to create a compelling image in post-processing.

And yet you’re not getting the result that you want, so you end up thinking: 

My images are noisy and look low-quality

The focus in my images is off – I can’t get pinpoint stars

I feel lost in post-processing, I just make random adjustments and hope for the best

I got a tracker but I can’t capture the images that I want

My blendings look unnatural and distract the viewer’s eye

I know how to shoot the Milky Way but my images are lacking something

If you identified with any of the above statements, don’t worry, I’ve been there too. 

I know how frustrating it can be to spend lots of time and energy on Milky Way photography without seeing any results.

I started shooting the Milky Way many years ago. At first, my images were terrible. They had a ridiculous amount of noise and the quality was very poor.

With time and practice, I managed to get much better results and cleaner images that were better quality:

However, my images were still lacking something; I couldn’t get the details, colors, or impact that I was looking for.

That’s when I realized that, if I wanted to improve, I had to immerse myself in this photography genre.

I.

I learned how to plan using the best apps and astronomy tools.

II.

I studied composition and analyzed why the best Milky Way images worked.

III.

I researched the best gear and got my first star-tracker, the biggest game-changer for my Milky Way photography.

Iv.

I spent hundreds of hours in the field testing the best adjustments and shooting techniques…

V.

…and hundreds of hours in the studio learning complex astronomy post-processing techniques and implementing them in my workflow.

After all of this hard work, I managed to capture what I was looking for: images with impactful compositions and zero digital noise, that show all the details, nebulae, and natural colors in the Milky Way:

This was a long and arduous process that took me years to learn, develop, and adapt.

Now I want to make this knowledge accessible to everyone. Milky Way photography is one of the most exciting, moving, and rewarding types of photography, and everybody should have the opportunity to capture the best possible images in an easy way, regardless of their skills and astronomy knowledge.

That’s why I created:

I have not yet had the pleasure of taking an overseas tour with him yet but, from what I have seen, it is an epic adventure. I would highly recommend his services and would like to give Dan huge thanks

SOME FREQUENT QUESTIONS

These are some of the most common questions I’ve received about this course:

Once you join the course, you’ll be able to access all the instructional videos and downloadable elements on our online platform. This platform has been specifically designed for this course, and it’s reliable and very easy to navigate. You just need a device with a screen and an internet connection.

This online course requires a single payment. After that, you’ll have lifetime access and be able to watch all the videos and tutorials at your own pace.

This course includes unlimited support. It doesn’t matter what you need or when you ask for help, I’ll be there.

The main pieces of software in post-processing are Lightroom and Photoshop.

We’ll also use other programs for some specific functions, such as Denoise AI, PTGui Pro, or Nik Collection. All the pieces of software include a dedicated video on how to use them.

You can definitely use Luminar, Capture One, or other pieces of software instead of Lightroom for the file preparation and the basic edits. The principles will be the same and you’ll be able to apply the same methodology.

Once we dive into the advanced post-processing, most of the workflow will be done in Photoshop.

Not at all. The more you know about Photoshop the faster you’ll advance in the course, but if you have never used Photoshop before, I’ll walk you through all the steps in the basic module.

I know how terrifying starting out in Photoshop can be, so following the different modules will help you see that it’s easier than it seems.

If, for any reason, you’re not satisfied with the course, you have a 15-day money-back guarantee.

Just contact us during this period and we’ll process the refund. No small print and no questions asked.
