Learn Night Photography and Light Painting with a master who literally wrote the book on the subject, and has been teaching it for twenty years.

When Lance Keimig taught his first night photography workshop in San Francisco in 1997, there were no similar workshops offered anywhere in the United States. Today, there are many workshops to choose from, but no one else has been teaching the subject continuously for the last twenty years.  The Night Skye photo workshops offer courses for novice through advanced photographers covering a range subjects in some of the most breath-taking locations in the country, and photo tours to some of the most dramatic landscapes on the planet. Learn With Us!


There are lots of workshops to choose from these days, but no one has more experience teaching night photography than Lance Keimig. The Night Skye workshops are designed for specific skill levels and emphasize specializations like Astro-Landscape Photography, Full Moon Landscape Photography, Light Painting, and Urban Night Photography. Since 1997.


There are lots of photo tours to choose from, but not many international tours that focus on night photography. The Night Skye Photo tours make the most of our time abroad, and we photograph day and night. Our photo tours are all about image making, there are no lectures, and minimal critiques. This is why we don't call them workshops. Non-stop photography and adventure, day and night!
