Overall Winner of the 2018 Astronomy Photographer of the Year
We are humbled by, and so honored to have been selected as the Overall Winner of the 2018 Astronomy Photographer of the Year! The Royal Museums of Greenwich, England holds the largest, most prestigious international competition of its kind. It showcases the best space photography from the world’s most amazing Astro-photographers. This year our image ‘Transport the Soul’ was selected as the first-place winner in the People and Space category as well as the overall winner of this worldwide competition! Images from over 4200 entries taken from 91 countries were selected by a panel of esteemed experts from across the fields of astronomy, photography, art and science! What makes this so special is that this commemorative exhibition is showcasing the ten-year milestone of the world’s best astrophotography from the Royal Observatory at the National Maritime Museums in Greenwich, England. Our image will be showcased alongside this year’s category winners as well as the winners from all previous years.
“This competition has always featured some of the most stunning works ever captured. This year we entered an image that we feel captured the relationship between man’s search for purpose and encompassing the limitlessness of our experiences. It helps us to remember that we are all an integral part of an amazing and vast universe. To be selected as the overall winner is the greatest praise and recognition our work has ever achieved!”

Can you please advise where this photo was taken? My 13-year old son bought the print for himself when we were at the Royal Greenwich Observatory and has hung it up in his bedroom and I noticed it doesn’t tell anything about the location. Thank you.
Congratulations on such a prestigious honor!
Can’t think of anyone more deserving!
You are a champion of the night sky and your images and video, move and inspire people.
Thanks so much, Kevin!
Really a great achievement, Brad. Couldn’t be happier for you. Keep pushing that envelope and looking skyward!
Will do, Terry! Thank you for your support!
Your success, Brad, makes me look good. Your workshop helped me get into National Geographic’s Daily Dozen and then with Photo of the Day award from roughly 8,000 submissions. My portfolio was instrumental in getting into University of Arizona’s Film School and I will be taking Fine Art as a minor exploring the vastness of space and Eternal Reoccurrence. After that, I plan on going to Yale’s masters programs. I always mention and thank those whose backs I stood on to achieve my quests. “Thus Sprach Zarathustra.”
Wow! That’s fantastic, Vahe! Such great news and congratulations! I’m looking forward to when our paths cross again soon.
Congrats Brad! Quite an honor and well deserved! Thanks for including me as an honorary “observer” on some of your classes. Utah was one of the best….
Really appreciate it, Wayne! It wouldn’t be the same without you there under the stars. Hope we get together again soon!
So glad to see this. You are an amazing artist! Absolute Congratulations!
Often, when I see your photography, I feel as if I can fall into them.
Just plain wonderous!
Thank you for your kind words and support, Gene!
Wow! Congratulations! This is an EPIC image and well deserved recognition.
Thanks Tom!!! We appreciate it!
