I'M DAVID MAGRO

A NIGHT SKY LOVER

An Australian photographer blending art with science.

My interest in astro-photography first began growing up in Glen Innes watching meteors showers, eclipses and stars from the backyard.

Years later in 2012, I begun travelling around the world and I captured my first night sky photo in Switzerland. 

I had just come from teaching children English in China and I was amazed by how many stars where visible outside the city.

FROM THAT NIGHT, I WAS HOOKED

I came back home to Australia and begun chasing the stars. I fell in love with being under the night sky again.
