Launch of Antares NG-16 from Wallops Island, Virginia. What I remember about this launch were the weather conditions and the lighting. The sky was a perfect blue with zero clouds. The launch time was late afternoon and the sun was behind me so there was no shadow on either side of the rocket from my position. When the rocket launched to the space station, the sun gave almost a glow to the rocket’s body and the flame was extra orange. It was a beautiful launch to behold and to this day, this is my favorite launch photograph I have taken.
I have been a photographer for about 11 years. For the past 3 years, I have been focused on astrophotography and space, including the space industry. I am always fascinated by what we can learn when we simply look up. One of the things I focus on in my photography is sharing the science of our world. Whether I’m sharing details about a galaxy or nebula or sharing the scientific missions and experiments going up on a rocket to the International Space Station, I always want my viewers to learn something when enjoying my photos. Sharing the intersectionality of science and art; it’s who I am as an artist.
