Katie's enthusiasm for galaxies far, far away dates back to the first time that she watched the Star Wars trilogy as a young girl. Since then, her innate imagination  has cultivated a curiosity for other cultures which has led to a passion for traveling. She enjoys sharing her adventures through photos, and through astrophotography she time travels to places light-years away.

Zach's first fascination with astronomy started in college when he saw the Hubble Deep Field images. These photographs revealed hundreds of galaxies in the darkest spot of the universe, a region which previously was thought to contain only empty space. Similarly, the realization that the colorful deep space nebulae and galaxies captured by the Hubble could not be appreciated with the human eye using a simple telescope lens inspired the interest that would lead to the hobby of astrophotography.
