Creative astrophotography involves more than just having expensive equipment and the latest software. Intuition, research, subject knowledge and dedication to succeed can mean the difference between an APOD worthy image or a complete failure.

During Andy’s presentation dive into some of the best practices he has learnt for suburban deep space imaging, from researching unique target selection with galaxy maps and scientific resources, to equipment and processing methods. Andy’s multimedia presentation includes step by step examples of his Award and APOD winning Deep Space Images and covers a broad range of subtopics.

With a career spanning over three decades Andy’s photographic knowledge is extensive and his presentations are always well received as they are interwoven with humour, references to popular culture, Paradolia, UFO’s, science fiction and a little bit of Star Trek.

Biography

Andy Campbell is a Grand Master of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography and a Master Photographer of the WPPI (USA).

Andy’s obsession began in 2012 when a friend donated him an old Newtonian telescope. Andy was immediately intrigued by the possibility of attaching a camera and photographing the heavens. This soon led to purchasing several serious telescopes and an equatorial mount with a cooled mono astronomical camera with LRGB & NB filters. He cautiously tells his wife that his hobby is cheaper than having a boat! 

In 2015 Andy was thrilled honoured to win the Deep Sky Section of the Prestigious CWAS “David Malin Awards”, Australia’s premier astrophotography competition, judged by the legendary world renowned Astrophotographer David Malin himself. 

Andy’s images have been published by NASA as APOD on six occasions, from 2016-2019. 

Andy was also named the 2015 & 2016 AIPP Australian Science Photographer of the Year, and the AIPP Victorian Science Photographer of the Year 2015, 2016 & 2017. 

Recognised by his peers as a discerning judge of photography, Andy has judged at the state and national awards for the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) for the last 24 years consecutively.
