"Photography is a hobby that I love to do.
Definitely a good counterbalance to the
fast-paced life I live."

NASCAR driver and amateur photographer Bubba Wallace teamed up with world-renowned National Geographic pro Babak Tafreshi for an immersive in-the-field workshop in night sky photography. Their journey took them to Gooseberry Mesa, Utah, a rugged desert wilderness that can see scorching heat by day and freezing temps at night.

With expert tutelage, steady resolve, and the right gear, they aimed to capture the perfect shot in the dark.
