Taking photographs of the landscape at night is one of the most fascinating and daunting disciplines in photography. For decades it was the realm of serious professionals only, and they kept their secrets to themselves.
In this 95 page eBook, I blow the lid off the secrecy and publish a book that shows you not just how to make incredible night images that will elevate your work instantly, but allows you to evaluate night light to create truly unique images.
The Complete Guide to Landscape Photography at Night
Many night photography books teach a series of guidelines and rules of thumb that may work if the conditions happen to be right, but Seeing the Unseen teaches a far more useful technique – Scene Evaluation.
Easy enough for relative beginners to understand, the book blows away the smoke and mirrors of night photography and teaches it from the ground up.
Whether you are a beginner to landscape photography, or an established professional wanting to break into the most innovative realm of landscape photography, this book will show you how.

The image above was taken from Vermilion Lake in Banff way back in 2004 and it was my very first night image. I’ll confess I knew nothing about taking landscape images at night, but I decided there and then that I was going to learn everything I could about this fascinating branch of Landscape Photography.
I made it my mission to study everything I could find, and at the time, that wasn’t a lot.
What I couldn’t research I worked out for myself, thousands of hours out at night, slowly working at it by trial and error.
From Tibet, Nepal and the Himalaya, to Northern Spain, Thailand & Indonesia
My wife and I have traveled for nearly a decade to learn as much from a variety of landscape scenarios as possible, testing the techniques, fine-tuning the material and making sure what the book delivered is the most complete guide to landscape photography at night.
I wanted to write the book I wish I could have read in 2004, and I wanted to make it as affordable as possible.
As the years went by I found myself more and more in control of what I was capable of creating any night of the year, regardless of whether I was 5500m up a mountain in the Himalaya, or standing by a waterfall in Iceland watching the aurora borealis go crazy over the mountains.
The secret of great night photography is being prepared and confident that whatever the night throws at you, you can deal with it and produce something amazing.
Symphony of Light
Even in the most iconic over-photographed locations on Earth, as night falls and the other photographers pack up and leave, it is now possible to create images that are so unique that people wonder why they never thought of it before. We are still surfing the crest of the Night Photography Wave, and we all have the chance to be pioneers and innovators.
It is my belief that the greatest landscape images ever produced are still to come, and it will be under moonlight that they will be delivered.
Good luck and great light to you all.

REVIEWS – What other have to say…
Kah Kit Yoong Review of the Night Photography eBook
As it stands, “Seeing the Unseen” is a superb manual detailing the up-to-date best practice in the art of night photography. Throughout the text, Alister Benn’s strong passion for the subject comes through. It makes you want to head out and do some night shooting right now.
Rafael Rojas Review
All in all, “Seeing the Unseen” is really the Bible of Night Photography we had all been waiting for a long time. I guarantee it will exceed the expectations of any photographer who shows the slightest interest for night photography. Not only that, this is one of those books which will make you interested in night photography, if that was not the case before. This is one of those books which will open to you a new door, a creative outlet you might not have known that existed before. An incredible book for a ridiculous price. A must have. THE book about night photography.
Greg Russell Review
In addition to the technical aspects of nighttime photography, Seeing the Unseen touches on “deeper” subjects like composition, and visualization. If you know Alister, you know he is a big proponent of taking control of your image, all the way from conception to print, and his philosophy definitely shines through in this book.
Format: Kindle Edition – By Quentin
Seeing the Unseen is a great start for photographers who wish to try their hand at night landscape photography. The author covers both technical and artistic points very clearly, and provides a plethora of example images with full information on the settings used to capture them. Especially valuable are the explanations, tailored to photographers, of how stars move in the night sky and how to orient yourself to find the type of star motion you’re after.
Benn covers scene evaluation, neutral density filters, single- and multiple-exposure techniques, light painting and image stacking. He categorizes the different parts of the night, and of the lunar month, which provide qualitatively different types of light, and how to capture the scene in these regimes.
All in all, this is a great guide to getting started, and I look forward to testing it out in the field, when all these clouds go away…
