Landscape Astrophotography: the discipline of blending Earth elements with those of the night sky in compelling photographic imagery. Arising from over 20 years of outdoor, adventure and nature photography, these are some of my favorite and most visually meaningful works of Landscape Astrophotography. All are available as prints or for licensing. For a much broader selection of my images, please see my Natural History Photography website.
About me: I am a natural history photographer. I focus on wild marine animals, the California kelp forest, inhabitants of remote eastern Pacific islands, National Parks of the American West, Southern California, aerial panoramas and the night sky and landscape astrophotography. I am fortunate to have visited many spectacular terrestrial and underwater settings as well as to have encountered many threatened and endangered animal species in the ocean. My work has appeared in the print versions of National Geographic Magazine, BBC Wildlife, National Wildlife, GEO, Nature, Science, Ocean Realm, Ranger Rick, Reader’s Digest, the NY Times, the Washington Post and many other fine publications, is in use in various advertising and publicity campaigns, is installed in many aquaria and museums around the world, and has received awards in the world’s top wildlife photographic competitions on occasion since 1995. Thank you very much for your interest in my photography – Phil Colla
