All images on Nightskyhunter are copyright by photographer Martin McKenna. These images are the product of hundreds of hours spread over countless years photographing the night sky covering everything from meteor showers, comets, auroras, to Noctilucent Clouds and even elusive Moonbows. I also have invested a considerable amount of time documenting atmospheric optical displays including chasing thunderstorms and other severe weather events in N. Ireland. These images are available for image licensing for commercial products, so if you work for a magazine, newspaper, website, or television programme and need an image within this thrilling subject range then please email me to the following address...
I need to know who you work for and what the image will be used for. I have high resolution originals of most images on the site but not all, so please check with me first by including the link to the image you are interested in. Please note that I'm licensing a single image at a time and NOT the rights to the image. I can send full size images via email and several other formats if required. I typically use wire transfer for consumer sales and paypal for private (non commercial) use.
