We will head about 20-30 minutes outside ofIn addition to capturing a few remarkable images of the night sky to get a closer look at the cosmos, we will also learn about constellation mythology, how to find certain stars, and what the heck it is that were looking at when we look up on a clear night sky!

It was an amazing star gazing experience for me, husband and kids, we learned a lot about the constellation, its location and the importance, Evan is very knowlegable of his craft. We definitely would recommend this adventure, and Evan's service, its worth it.

Evan is a thoughtful and fun tour guide who is clearly knowledgeable in his field. We had a large group and we all thoroughly enjoyed the vast wealth of information about our night sky. We also got some fascinating background about Arizona itself. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to experience the night sky like never before.

This experience was awesome. My husband is a director or photography and I am an art director. We have never shot great pictures of the night sky but we can now! Evan clearly knows his camera and his approach to teaching us how to shoot the night sky was easily understandable. He also added such insight on the constellations, especially with the way he shares knowledge - by telling stories. It was lots of information in 90 minutes. Well worth it and we'd do it again, and again! We went to other areas of Arizona after visiting Flagstaff and took pictures most nights - excited to have learned how! If you are interested in photography, want to learn how to take pictures of the night sky, learn about the night sky AND be around a teacher who has a passion for sharing his knowledge, book this experience with Evan right away!
