Stargazing: Night Sky Photography Workshop

November 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EST

[ Workshop has been cancelled due to snowstorm, poor driving conditions, and cold temperatures ]

About the Workshop

The purpose of this workshop is to educate people on how to capture the beauty of the the night sky on camera. Topics being covered include equipment needed, camera settings, and the best locations for viewing. These workshops will start out with a brief presentation (in the conference room), and then we will go outside for hands-on experience — taking pictures of the night time sky (hopefully the milky way or the northern lights) around the Lodge property (weather depending). With the information garnered from the workshop, it will make stargazing more enjoyable.

Price

Free for Lodge guests, $75 for non-Lodge guests.

Reservations are required. Space is limited, so you will want to register early to reserve your spot. To reserve your spot, please call (906-289-4403 ext 2) or email events@keweenawresort.com.

Location

You meet at the Banquet Room at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge between 7:00pm and 7:30pm. The session will last about 2 hours  – possibly more if participants would like to spend more time with guided practice.

About the Instructor: Tom Oliver

Tom Oliver is an avid photographer of wildlife and landscapes, including dark skies and northern lights.  Since he was a child, nature, wildlife, and the outdoors have always been his deepest fascination – the intrinsic force which drives him. Those interests led him through, both, his career (in wildlife ecology/management and science education) and his preferred forms of recreation (hiking, backpacking, canoeing and kayaking, photography, hunting and fishing, and birding). Although, he was born and raised in the UP, these pursuits also provided me the opportunity to live overseas (in Europe and Asia) for 15 years, which greatly expanded my experience with the outdoors and outdoor recreation in different cultures.  

Tom maintains a passion for photography and the outdoors that he delights in sharing with students. His photography work can be viewed at teoliver.com and @theupwell on Instagram.
