The Art of Night – The Photography of Mark Gee

The Art of Night Facebook Feed

The 3rd Annual A Night of Astrophotography with Mark Gee at the Red Rocks Reserve on the South Coast of Wellington, New Zealand had a great turnout despite of the cold conditions last night. 1200 people had registered for tickets for the event, and we had around 1000 actually turn up. A huge thanks for all of those who came. I certainly had a fantastic night and I hope you all did too!

A big thanks to Lee Mauger and the Space & Science Festival and Jaime Hayden from the Wellington City Council. Without your help things certainly wouldn't have gone as smoothly as they did this year!

We will be back in 2018 for another A Night of Astrophotography Wellington!

Cheers
Mark

Bharat ChhibaThanks to all the organisers and the advice, now I know the basics, will do some more research on how to process raw which seemed daunting to learn, but I think is worth it for these types of pictures.2 days ago   ·  2

New Zealand Under A Starry Sky
New Zealand is blessed with dark night skies and little light pollution. Even within the cities the Milky Way is visible to the naked eye, and you don't have to travel far from them to find some of the darkest skies in the world where you can see the night sky in all of it's glory.

New Zealand - Under A Starry Sky is a collection of some of my most memorable time-lapse experiences under the stars around New Zealand. It includes footage from the annual A Night of Astrophotography with Mark Gee where 100's of stargazes and photographers gather on the south coast of Wellington to experience and celebrate the night sky.

Hope you like the time-lapse, and feel free to share!

Cheers
Mark

If you're in Wellington, New Zealand next weekend on the 20th May, don't forget I'm holding the annual A Night of Astrophotography at Red Rocks on the south coast. This year is bigger and better than before, so if we have relatively clear skies, it's totally worth getting down there. The event is FREE and you can register at the event page here: www.facebook.com/events/395829387465820/

And this weekend on the 13th May, the Space & Science Festival is holding it's day event at Onslow College. It's definitely worth checking out, and you can use the special discount code to get 10% off those tickets. The code is: artofscience and you can get your tickets from the website here: spacesciencefestival.org/

Hope to see you at both events!

Cheers
Mark

On the last Friday of every month, I'm posting some astrophotography work from other photographers as part of The Art of Night - The Photography of Mark Gee Astro Shout Out. The idea behind this is to give these photographers some extra exposure and allow you guys to go and check out their work.

If you're a photographer who does, or wants to learn more about astrophotography, and also interested in having a chance of being featured in the monthly Astro Shout Out, just head on over to the The Art Of Night Photography Group, read the group rules and start posting: The Art of Night Photography Group

Hope you like the images, and feel free to share!

It’s May and the Space & Science Festival 2017 is on again in Wellington, New Zealand. This year it’s bigger and better than before, and although some of the events have sold out, there’s still tickets for the Space and Science Festival at Night session for this Saturday 6 May, and the Space and Science Festival at Day session on the 13 May.

And to save you some money I’ve got a special discount code to get 10% off those tickets. The code is: artofscience and you can get your tickets from the website here: spacesciencefestival.org/

Don’t forget I’m also running A Night of Astrophotography at Red Rocks again this year, and tickets for that event are free. You can register and find out more info about that event here: www.facebook.com/events/395829387465820/

Cheers
Mark
