Milky Way Mastery

Would you like to capture magazine quality shots of the Milky Way? Pictures so striking and unique that your friends will beg you for prints?

About this course

Are you interested in taking stunning pictures of the Milky Way?

I know it seems like you need expensive and specialised camera gear. And that the best photos need complex settings and extreme post-processing.

But the truth is, capturing the Milky Way is easier than capturing a good sunset… once you have the right camera settings.

I used to struggle to capture the Milky Way, but that changed when I attended a workshop hosted by Casey Kiernan.

(Casey hosts dozens of night sky workshops each year and is a real expert.)

He showed me how to find the Milky Way, use apps to plan my shots, and which settings to apply to 99% of my photos.

The process was simple, and I was able to capture stunning photos like this:

I was so happy with the results, I asked him to partner with me and create ‘Milky Way Mastery’.

It’s an online course that will show you:

  • How to plan your scenes for perfect conditions (light, weather, moon)
  • The exact settings to use on 99% of your shots (even if you have basic gear)
  • Simple processing techniques (and LR presets) to make your photos pop

With Casey’s help I was able to transform my Milky Way photography like this:

Milky Way Mastery is here to show you how to do the same.

This is the fastest and most effective way to capture Milky Way photography. I use these methods to capture stunning photos of every night sky I shoot.

Without this training, I felt underwhelmed, confused, or let down.

    I have recommended this course to several of my friends. It is a very easy to follow course, everything is explained without going into technical terms that people don't understand.I like the way it is broken down into several videos for separate topics that were not time consuming.

    If you want your Milky Way photos to jump off the page and say 'look at me!' then this is the course for you. It is presented at a pace that is easy to follow and will take you through from set up to post processing your photos. I highly recommend it.
