This weekend i was at a wedding , and met Ian Norman.  Ian is an ex SpaceX engineer, who designed parts that flew on the Dragon rocket to the International Space Station. Dragon is the first private spacecraft to the international space station (ISS) by the way.

Recently he left SpaceX and founded A true passion project turned into a business. 

Check out his website it offers private and group workshops where he teaches people how to take amazing night sky photos. Private workshops start at $950. For a two day camping trip where you learn to take some amazing astrphotographs. In other words teaches you how to make your very own iPhone backgrounds. Apple worthy lock screen and home screen photos that you made. 

Here are some examples of his photos of the night sky. Simply put stunning ! Ther are even more photos on this showcase page here .

A tripod, a fuji or Nikon camera, the right lens , and a car that can take you far enough away from cities and light pollution is all you need to make pix as good as the iOS 7 background photo :)  

That is if you hired Ian to teach you how to take amazing long exposure photos of the night sky. He even does videos, where you see the constellations of the milky way drift by.

The photos have a humbling effect due to the majesty of the stars. Check it out for yourself. Maybe even purchase a Private workshop. Just make sure you are ready to go camping :)
