What you'll do

The night photography tours are usually be 4 hours and begin and end whenever the darkest part of the day is. It's a little tricky because we have to time our sessions depending on the moon and the weather so mostly it matters when the darkest parts of the night are. We have access to Colorado's greatest parks and know all the hidden back roads that have some of the most stunning views. Please look up moon phase and rise/set times. We can still go when the moon is out, it just dilutes the amount of stars captured, but we can get stars in any condition other than rain or snow. I have a jeep that easily fits 2 guests and we go to to guanella pass. You can bring your own DSLR camera or we will provide one for you. If you bring your own, please email us so we can make sure you have the right type of lens you need for optimal use. We are also happy to meet you anywhere you might be (within reason) so if you want to meet in a mountain town you are visiting, we are usually willing to meet up with you where you are. We drive about 30 min into the darkness, then spend another 30min getting cameras on their best settings. After that, we head to stunning mountain views to fish for shooting stars. We stay close to the car, and I teach you how to take optimal photos. We return home with amazing photos.

Where you'll be

Jeep trails in Colorado have been some of my favorite day adventures. We will go anywhere to jeep goes! After all our time here, we know the best camp grounds, the best parks, and the best "off the beaten path" backroads. Since it mostly depends on the weather and the season, it is hard to be specific- but the Rocky Mountains, Lakes, Meteor showers, and the like are all on the agenda.

Availability

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 3 guests ages 21 and up can attend. Guests should be familiar with the aperture and shutter settings on a DSLR camera. If not, it's not a huge deal, maybe watch a video or something to give you basics.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

If mountain driving scares you, just let me know and we can keep it to paved roads. I'm happy to accommodate any concerns you may have. My goal is to have fun too! Also, if you are vacationing in the mountains, I'm willing to meet you there.
