Directory of Explore Alliance Astrophotography Ambassadors

The Astrophotography Ambassadors of the Explore Alliance are individuals who are enabling the general public to understand a deeper level of scientific literacy by engaging a large audience through astrophotography. By revealing the cosmos in a way that can only be done through the expert techniques of and sharing of astrophotography, we believe that people become inspired to undertake a personal exploration of the universe, and in doing so become more scientifically literate.
These Astrophotography Ambassadors are available for imaging workshops, lectures, and for educational outreach. They are also there to consult with you to answer your questions about their fields of exploration and expertise.
