Martin

Born and raised in Amsterdam, Holland, Martin received his first telescope for his 13th birthday. Pointing the scope at the sun and seeing the sun up close with special solar filters was a revelation. Photographing the planet Mercury transiting the sun all the way back in May 1970 sealed the deal. Martin's astrophotography has been published and exhibited internationally.

Where you'll be

We meet at my photography studio in Santa Monica, right near the beach and the Santa Monica Pier. With many clear and cloudless days, the location is ideal for solar observation. You will get a first glance at my work and my gear, then we go outside to observe and photograph the sun with special binoculars and telescopes.

More tips

This unique experience is really one to share: signing up with a friend or partner is strongly encouraged. We'll need clear skies, so it is weather dependent. Bring your own camera (iPhone is OK)!
