Uplift Adventures has teamed up with Bound for Mountain Photography to bring you exceptional night photography adventures this summer. These adventures are strategically timed to give you the best value for your adventure. We will photograph under the milky way and get star struck by shooting stars. Learn to take better photos for your next adventure.

This is designed for people who have some experience using DSLR cameras and want to learn how to capture the stars and the milky way. You will get the most out of this adventure when you bring your DSLR camera that allows full manual exposure controls including aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and focus.
