Qué harás

Experience Arizona Astrophotography under Payson's dark skies up in the pines. The experience will usually take an 1.5hours and begin after sunset

We will be located near the entrance on the Tonto Natural Bridge in a Bartle Class 3 night sky.

Before booking, please look up the moon phase and rise/set times, it is still possible to go out with a full moon but it just dilutes the amount of stars significantly. Also check the weather, we can't capture any stars if it is cloudy and it's a hassle to cancel unless it's within 24 hours of booking.

The location can be reached with a passenger car if you do not have a truck. You can bring your own camera or we have 2 cameras + 2 lenses + 2 tripods available to use if you do not have your own to bring. If you bring your own, let us know what lens you have so we can make sure you have the most optimal one for astro.

We will meet at the entrance to the Tonto Natural Bridge Park and have a short introduction, spend about 30 minutes setting up our cameras and learning basics. Over the next hour we will try different photo styles and dabble in light painting at the end which is pretty fun.

Other things to note:
Be prepared for cold and windy weather.
Bring an open mind and wonderment.
Elevation is about 5,200 feet.

My name is Brian Devonshire, I am a professional photographer who started in 2012 with a passion for capturing the beauty of the night sky. I love being out under the stars, immersed by the infinite and ever expanding scientific wonder. This is how my passion for photography started. Over the years I have come to know the night-sky very well, needing to know where certain objects are for photographs and learning as much as I can about space. It has become my mission now to transfer wonderment to others through night-sky photographs and cool science.

Donde estarás

We will be in the parking lot for the Pine Trailhead, which is a part of the Arizona Trail and where many Elk roam through. We are surrounded by tall Pine trees but there is a large clearing, leaving lots of the sky available for viewing. The sky is dark out here, Bortle Class 3. There is also a restroom facility available nearby.

We had a wonderful experience with Brian. He pointed out the constellations and taught us new tips and tricks to get better night time photos.

I have enjoyed taking photos of nature and landscapes as a hobby for a few years but it was always a challenge to get good photos of the night sky. Brian was flexible and patient as he worked with me and my equipment to help me learn more about the proper settings. He explained the information in a way that was easy to understand. He recommended apps and equipment as well. He even shared some tips afterward via message. Thank you Brian!
