Photography is constantly being revolutionized. With the advancement of photography equipment, new fields of photography have emerged. One such field is astrophotography. Astrophotography is the photography of astronomical objects, celestial events, the night sky, and much more. Advances in technology have allowed for the popularization of such a field of photography. With astrophotography, photographers can capture details of extended objects such as the Moon, Sun, and the planets. It also has the ability to capture objects that are usually not visible to the human eye such as dim stars and galaxies. Nowadays, photographers are able to take such shots with the help of long time exposure shots from their digital and film cameras. Bryony Richards is one such photographer who has made a name for himself in the field of astrophotography. His pictures are not only unique, but they are also very surreal. People have really admired his photography skills.

Ever since he was a child, Bryony loved studying science. He had always shown a keen interest in astronomy. Over the years, he decided to pursue his interest and passions academically as he became a scientist who loved astronomy. Having studied astronomy, Bryony had a wide range of knowledge about the night sky. Soon, he decided to put his knowledge into use. Astrophotography was a natural progression of this. He and his partner Eric Benedetti became night photographers. Bryony was able to combine his knowledge and passion for astronomy with his skills and expertise in the field of photography. Photography revolutionized the field of professional astronomical research. With long time exposure shots, it became easier for night photographers like Bryony to record hundreds of new stars that are usually not visible to the human eye. Nowadays, astrophotography is considered as a subdiscipline in amateur astronomy. Photographers capture aesthetically pleasing images of the night sky. Bryony has taken some very impressive shots of the night sky. 

With his astrophotography, Bryony manages to capture aesthetically pleasing shots of the night sky. He also wants to inspire people to spend time outside looking at the stars.

Not only this, but he also utilizes his photography for a good cause. He auctions his night photo prints in order to raise money for various charity organizations.

Bryony’s photography is largely based off in Utah. He also offers people with tutorials and workshops on how to take surreal night photos. With his tutorials and workshops, he wants to teach people about how they can edit specific images, detail the process of astrophotography itself, and how to prepare for the camera setup and settings. He offers a hands-on approach where he won’t be fussing around with his own equipment but rather be focused on their workshop attendees, answering their question and helping them with their exposures. He also offers to teach tricks and ideas he has put together over the years to improve experience out under the stars. While photography is the focus, Bryony tells people to enjoy their time in dark areas seeing the night sky the way most cannot.
