Great Barrier Island

Great Barrier Starscapes - Astrophotography Workshop, GBI

The Renegade Peach Project's Mark Russell flew over to Great Barrier Island this weekend to host an astrophotography workshop for GBI residents.  The photography and star enthusiasts learnt more about their cameras' manual settings and were able to experiment with them.  Due to poor weather conditions we weren't able to photograph outside, but each participant left equipped with the know-how and practical workshop experience to capture the stars in their own time.  

Great feedback for those involved, and looking forward to future workshops (and to seeing some of those starscapes!)


DARK SKY SANCTUARY - Great Barrier Island

We have been very immersed promoting and working with the islanders involved in establishing the Dark Sky sanctuary on Great Barrier Island.  Mark contributed many photographs to raise funds for the project and also donated photographs for the Dark Sky sanctuary book, "Sanctuary".  
The sanctuary is one of only three places on Earth that have been made into a Dark Sky sanctuary, protecting it from developing potential light pollution.  The island, being completely off the electrical grid, is the perfect place for star enthusiasts, star photographers, and astronomers.
