The Madagascar Landscape Astrophotography Workshop is given in association with WorldPix. WorldPix is a charity organization that promotes and uses photography as a way to help communities in need. Profits from the workshops will be donated to a local charity through WorldPix. WorldPix is coordinating all logistical operations including accommodations and travel. A big thank you to Ryan Plakonouris for doing all the hard work! We believe in the power of a photograph to tell a story, to touch a life, to inspire action, to provide insight, and to provide enjoyment.

This is an incredible change to photograph the glorious Southern Hemisphere Milky Way, a very different experience compared to what we can capture in the Northern Hemisphere. The Milky Way Core will be high overhead rather than close to the horizon, and we will be able to capture both arms of the Milky Way. A sample of the Southern Hemisphere Milky Way is shown above. This is a great chance to capture and learn Milky Way panoramas as well.
The trip will include landscape astrophotography, Madagascar Safaris, exposure to the local culture, and sightseeing. At night we will be photographing the incredible baobab trees, exotic rock formations, the seashore, and possibly native habitats and dwellings. The trip will be 9 days and 8 nights.
We will meet in Johannesburg, South Africa and then fly on to Madagascar as a group.
More information will follow as we finalize the final details.
