One on One Astrophotography Mentoring

Want to improve your Astrophotography skills?

No matter where you are in the world, whether you’re a beginner or advanced imager, you too can draw from my experience to help you create your own very best images! I can help with recommending equipment, and I have extensive knowledge of many popular applications including Pixinsight, Adobe Photoshop, Topaz Denoise/Sharpen, Sequence Generator Pro & PHD 2.

I’ve been doing astrophotography for only three years, but already shot and edited lots of reward winning astrophotos. With my daily job as a professional photography editor with an experience of over 10 years, I know exactly how to use the best tools in your favorite editing program.  In my time as an astrophotographer I’ve learned that the best approach to editing an image is not one that relies on any single software, but one that goes between various programs for their strong points to arrive at a great result. I have some techniques that could help you find the right answer to your problems.

It’s easy – all you need is a PC or laptop with a microphone and/or a webcam and we are ready to go!

Editing Software and Plugins


With all my processed images I take a broad approach using multiple programs to get to a final image. I recommend getting these programs so we can start from the same point of view:

  • Pixinsight (Herbert Walter Pixinsight scripts, StarNet)
  • Adobe Photoshop (AstroFlat Pro, StarSpikes Pro 4)
  • Topaz Labs DeNoise AI
  • Topaz Labs Sharpen AI

Many of them have a month-long free trial so you can test them out yourself.
