The Dark Sun

As an outdoor adventure photographer, Travis Burke gets to travel the world and see all sorts of amazing things. And as a professional, he's always searching for the next creative challenge—which led him to Casper, Wyoming, to document a once-in-a-lifetime event: the total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.

With a small team of experts and state-of-the-art telescopes, he prepped, planned, and worked toward one of his dreams and a career-defining moment, knowing full well that everything could fall apart if the conditions weren't right. There were moments of doubt when clouds rolled in to obstruct the sky, but by the time the moon's path started to traverse the sun, the clouds had moved on, leaving it all up to Travis to do what he does best.

Capturing this special moment, which set a new benchmark in Travis's career, we watch a pro in action and look forward to where he heads next.
