The Night Skies of Winter.

We are Jake and Jo – astrophotographers based in Queenstown, New Zealand who spent Winter photographing the night sky in some of New Zealand’s most beautiful locations.
We are passionate about shooting the stars and often stay out till dawn in freezing temperatures to make the most of a clear night.


On our adventures we have managed to capture meteors, the Aurora Australis, zodiacal light, air glow, satellites, shooting stars and of course the milky way.


We are constantly trying to find new locations and planning our next adventure – we never thought that we could become obsessed with chasing the stars!

Bruised Summer Sky over derelict Home.

An abandoned house set against a bruised summer sky near Denton, Nebraska in the United States of America crackles with atmospheric electricity.
The phenomenon in this composite image—four shots taken within 20 minutes—is often called cloud-to-cloud lightning.

Severe Weather images.

One of my favourite memories is when we finally got the shot of Joplin in front of a tornado back on 24 May, 2016.
It had been two years of trying to get the perfect tornado for her to safely sit and pose in front of, plus I didn’t want her posing with a tornado that did any damage to property or life, so that was needed as well.
When it happened, I remember her just chilling in the car and not really in the mood to get out, so I grabbed her and ran her out in the field and put her down and started to try to get her to look at me.
I think she gave me one look before wanting to just lay down and sniff the dirt.
We got the shot though!
