My name is Matt Dieterich and I am passionate about night sky photography. When I first witnessed the Milky Way at night in 2008 from Glenwood Springs, Colorado I was instantly hooked. The experience of being outside at night under thousands of stars with the Milky Way strewn across the sky was captivating. Growing up in Pittsburgh, PA I did not know what dark night skies were. To this day, bright city lights continue to degrade the night sky to the point where nearly 75 % of society cannot view the Milky Way from where they live. The goal of my photography is to bring attention to the beauty that exists above our heads in the night sky away from these city lights. I want to inspire children and adults to continue the tradition of stargazing. After all, gazing up at the night sky is a major part of the human experience and such a resource is in need of our protection now more than ever for future generations to enjoy. 

If you would like to support my work please consider having a print made by ordering online or emailing me at MDieterich58@gmail.com. Thank you for supporting my passion, I am honored to have my photo hanging on your wall!

Guestbook for Matt Dieterich Photography

Matt, your work is stunning, a perfect blend of astronomy and photography. I have been tweeting the release of each new stamp in the series and am particularly fond of this image, especially now that I know the back story. Keep up the great work--it is nothing short of masterful artistry!

I work for the USPS and I can't wait to sell these stamps and let customers know how exactly this was done. Very beautiful!
25.Dot Nangle(non-registered)
An absolutely stunning photo. Makes me want to head that direction immediately. Thanks for the opportunity to share in the time-lapse that helped to create the finished photo. It will certainly be a favorite stamp for many of us.

that is a beautiful stamp and video. Too bad I couldn't figure out how to put it as a screen saver.

As I have never seen the Aurora you was the best video I've ever seen, full screen is like being there.
