Jerry Day is a Southern California-based photographer specializing in nighttime and astronomical photography. Jerry has been an avid amateur astronomer and astrophotographer for many years, but recently has explored other aspects of photographing under the night sky. Long fascinated by the scenic beauty and history of the desert southwest, his photography reflects this fascination by incorporating the wind sculpted rock formations, gnarled vegetation, and the relic and ruin to be found along lonely desert back roads. He was educated at Iowa State University where he earned Bachelor of Science degrees. His night photography has been displayed in group and solo exhibitions, including international venues.
