My name is Christian Ryun and I am a professional Astrophotographer. I started my journey in 2017 during the Great American Eclipse. It shortly evolved into Milky Way photography, and allowed me to combine two of my passions, photography and backpacking. Some of the areas shown are some you will recognize, and some are other worldly! I hope by exposing the masses to the stars, it can give you real sense of awe and how small we are in the universe. I hope you enjoy my work, and see you under the stars!
