« Sometimes just going out to shoot for fun leads to incredible learning experiences and memories that stick with you throughout life », says Jaxson Pohlman. This Kansas raised and born self-taught photographer and videographer is well-known for his striking astrophotography and surreal landscapes pictures. « I started with the iphone while I was in college. At the time, using the iphone camera felt very intriguing. I had never experimented with any camera befor so I was having a lot of fun with it and I saw the possibilities it offered. Once I had my hands on a DSLR camera, creativity felt enldess, and it took off from there ».
« My fascination with Astrophotography started when I first saw a few photos of the Milky Way on social medias. It blew me away. I had never seen it in real life, so I was beyond inspired to see and capture it. When I was 19, I was gifted my first cheap crop-sensor DSLR camera and immediatly took it outside to photograph the night sky. I was completely shocked by what came back on my camera screen. There’s something magical about photographing in a dark environment and seeing the world around you come to life through the camera. I fell in love with Astrophotography right at that moment »
