“We take every single picture featured on our apparel, prints, and website through the process of astrophotography. Astrophotography involves taking a series of long-exposure pictures with digital cameras attached to telescopes, then using software to process the data and create the final product. To capture images of fascinating celestial objects, we journey to remote locations in search of dark skies to peer deep into the universe.
At Estes & Schmitt, we ardently believe that the world needs more scientists and engineers, especially from underrepresented minority groups. That’s why we’re committed to donating a portion of the proceeds from our sales to organizations that empower underrepresented minorities to excel in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers.
Each photograph tells a unique story, a story you can wear or display in your home. And your purchase contributes to increasing the diversity of STEM fields. We hope you enjoy your Estes & Schmitt products as much as we enjoy creating them.”
