About Me

Chris Picking Born and raised in the Wairarapa region of New Zealand I have always been interested in the night sky. After joining the Phoenix Astronomical Society in 1998 I become a keen astrophotographer.

I enjoy capturing wide field images particulary of the southern night sky as well the occasional Aurora Australis. Many of my images have been used in books, magazines, multimedia presentations, television, exhibitions and various publications world wide.

Clear Skies,

Chris Picking
