In the grandeur of the North Cascades, moonless nights with clear skies offer fantastic opportunities to capture vivid images of the galaxy. Join photographer Andy Porter on this evening expedition to capture images of the Milky Way on this moonless night.


We’ll convene in Glacier for a short evening workshop on night photography. We’ll then continue our adventure up the Mount Baker Highway to Artist Point where Andy will guide us in capturing our nighttime images.


Andy is an award-winning photographer based in Skagit Valley. His North Cascades photographs have been featured in the Smithsonian Museum and the book The North Cascades: Finding Beauty and Renewal in the Wild Nearby, published  by The Mountaineers.

You will need to bring your own equipment, including a DSLR camera, wide-angle lens (preferably 14 to 24 mm), sturdy tripod and a cable release. Students should have a solid understanding of how to operate their cameras in manual mode, including how to adjust the aperture, shutter speed and ISO on your specific camera or lenses.


Scholarships and Student, Military and Disability discounts are available for most in-person programs. Call (360) 854-2599 for more info!
