The Official Top 5 Night Photography Destinations

Death Valley – This remote Californian desert is known for two things: 1. Recording the hottest ambient temperatures on earth, and also for being one of the darkest places on earth. That being said, it is an astro-photographer’s wet dream!

Northern Finland – Aurora Borealis is on everyone’s bucket list, and it makes for some truly spectacular shots!

Tokyo, Japan – The night photography is unrivaled. Mother Japan is the queen of kino, and her nightscapes offer a variable light situation that will take anyone’s night photography situation to the next level!

Joshua Tree – J-tree is really out there. A lot of people don’t realize just how far out it really is, until they reach 29 Palms (those unfortunate enough to be stationed out there know this too! lol). Being distant from civilization can be jarring, but it’s *great* if you want clear shots of the milky way!

Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve – True to its name, this New Zealand destination has some of the darkest skies in the world. It is well known by astrophotographers and night photographers alike, to offer some of the most incredible shots you can achieve while still down on earth!
