About

My name is Brandon,

I'm a college student studying photography at Northern Vermont University. Over time I've fallen deeply in love with photography, more specifically Astro-Photography. The photographing of the night sky and far away galaxies. 


Now I'm taking the big step and creating my first major print. I need your help to get the money for the equipment. The first big galaxy I'm going for is M81 also known as  Bode's Galaxy.

I have a camera but i need to get a telescope setup. Galaxies are beautiful but they are hard to see and track. The equipment is expensive and the accessories are just as bad. 

For what I've seen a decent setup costs around $2,000 to start without any of the add-ons. 


Vermont and the northeast has some beautiful skies. I want to bring that life into everyone home...

"Brandon’s Kickstarter Campaign Project, 'Bode's Galaxy · M 81', aims  to achieve the goal of helping him to create his first major print of  a big galaxy, otherwise known as "M81" or "Bode's Galaxy".  

            In doing this, Brandon is looking for support and financial backing to purchase  telescope setup equipment to make this print happen. As a professional photographer that has dabbled with a variety of astrophotography methods and techniques myself, when I first stumbled on Brandon's  Kickstarter Campaign Project, I was immediately impressed by the  quality of the images he had taken of Cutler Maine, Lake Francis State Park, and Orion Nebula.
 

I am personally excited and enthused about the prospect of his possibly bringing his vision for his "M81" print to life--especially with the help and addition of the necessary, albeit expensive, telescope setup equipment.

In all this, I offer support for this campaign and recommend anyone reading make a pledge today to help turn Brandon's dream into a reality!”
