Meeting: The Willard and Pat Walker Community Room

Learn how to capture the night skies and how you can help preserve them.

Photographer Brennen Nicole will present this introductory session on astrophotography:

  • What is Astrophotography and the different types
  • My Why
  • How Dark Skies are measured
  • What is Light Pollution
  • Effects of Us and Wildlife
  • Wasted Energy Consumption
  • Poor Lighting and Crime
  • What you can personally do - at home, state, and national level
  • My ultimate goal - A city wide "blackout" where we can all stargaze for one night together in the middle of town


Brennen was born on Earth Day, raised in Northwest Arkansas, and graduated from Farmington High School in 2003. She attended UCA for Graphic Design and Photography with a minor in marketing. After graduating in 2008, she began working in the construction industry. After almost two decades of being in high-paced environments, she decided to pursue her passion of photography and mix it with her love for the outdoors. She has had the privilege of visiting some of the most breathtaking locations and, through her photographs, she aims to inspire others to appreciate and conserve the natural wonders that surround us. She also believes that education and hands-on learning experiences are invaluable in nurturing creativity and enhancing technical skill, which is why she has dedicated herself to teaching photo workshops. She became an Ambassador in 2022 for Arkansas Tourism and loves showing off what our state has to offer. Besides exploring Arkansas, she enjoys exploring hidden nooks and crannies of our diverse country while documenting the night skies along the way.

This program is free and open to the public. No registration required.
