One of my fondest memories growing up was looking at a moon up close while I was on a trip in North Pakistan with my family. The skies were clear of light pollution and we were so high up that you could see everything in the sky. Before the moonrise, one could see millions of stars, and a shooting star once in a while. This was also a time when I was growing up watching Star Wars is one of the inspirations behind me getting into art.

So naturally I experimented with astrophotography as I picked up a camera. From the full moon to milky way to deep sky objects like the Orion nebula, I channel my fantasy of space travel into this form of photography.
