Ryland West, and Paul Heran, we are Northern California based photographers with a lust for capturing and sharing the natural wonders of the world in creative way. Although our individual work has taken us far and wide, we've decided to team up and shine a new light on astro photography as we know it.

With a determination to set our images apart, we crafted our own aerial lighting rig with a drone and a light panel, a unique method, used to mimic sunlight under the night sky. Carefully crafting shadows to manipulate our landscapes we are bringing a certain surreality and natural feel to each nightscape, not found in many other techniques. After years of studying light we are pleased to bring you this gallery. Some of the worlds wonders blanketed by the night sky, in a way like never before.
