A list by Jeff Bartlett | sort by: latest
Chasing Darkness is a photography and video collaboration between astrophotographer Jack Fusco and adventure photographer Jeff Bartlett. When both photographers recognized the new tourism trend that showcases dark sky preserves and observatories across North America, they were inspired to curate a definitive stargazing destination guide. By combining easy-to-reach location near major cities with far-flung bucket-list destinations, their 10-stop list is sure to inspire night sky enthusiasts and general travelers alike. In each location, the duo are producing a range of visual content: an adventure-style video showcasing the experience, a timelapse video highligihting the night skies, and still images for both print and social medias. Upon completion of the project, they will also release a stand-alone timelapse video to highlight the best of North America’s night sky.
