James Harrop is an experienced astrophotographer with a primary interest in the Moon. After years of studying and photographing the Moon, he has built up a wealth of knowledge and experience in lunar photography. His exceptional capture and image processing techniques can be clearly seen in his high-quality images. The use of colour makes his style unique. One of his main goals is to inspire others to take up astronomy and astrophotography by sharing his practical knowledge and easing the journey for anyone who wants to start out in this technically daunting subject.
