Adam Stephenson – Astrophotography, Landscapes and Wildlife

My name is Adam Stephenson. I photograph Landscapes, Wildlife, and I’m especially passionate about Astrophotography. I also enjoy creating timelapse pieces, often including some of my astro work, one of which I’ve included below.

I am 21 years old and this year I will be starting the final year of my photography degree. I’ve been interested in photography since I was young, getting my first camera for my eighth birthday. I see it as a way to show others the beauty in our surroundings, which is often overlooked or dimmed due to being surrounded by negative headlines and perspectives of our world.

In my opinion, the night sky seen in its full glory is one of the most beautiful and inspiring sights you can witness, and in the space of the next year I am hoping to do a project dedicated to astrophotography in my home country of the UK and what can be observed here. Despite not being a country famous for its impressive night sky, I would like to show people how much you can actually see and the beauty it holds, wherever you are in the world, if you take the time to just make a trip outdoors in an area with low light pollution.

If you choose to support me, the money would go towards upgrading to a full-frame camera, as well as having the means to travel to dark sky areas and interesting locations in the UK in order to improve the quality of my photos and projects.

A number of my photos have already been shortlisted in various competitions, as well as being published in a few newspapers and magazines. With your support I hope to continue to lengthen this list and move my career forward.
