The Miss Portland was an original Worcester Diner in Portland for decades. Her friendly staff served hearty food for very affordable prices. About a year ago the city purchased her from her former owner and has plans to move and renovate the diner and reopen as a leased concern. As you can see, she is a bit delapidated at the moment. When she is restored to her former glory, I will endeavour to do a follow up series of photographs. (And maybe have 3 over easy with a side of bacon!)
- I been a professional photographer since I worked for the US Government documenting Test and Evaluation of Research and Development projects for the US Army and US Navy in the later half of the 1980s. I came home to Maine to finish my Marketing Degree at USM and began to work full time in Market Research and Marketing for many years while documenting weddings and occasional photojournalist and commercial jobs on the weekends. In 2001 I again returned to photography as a full time trade and have never been a happier man. I love working with creative individuals, couples, small businesses and select Non-Profits and can’t imagine working in any other trade. In 1987 I was lucky enough to wed my high school sweetheart and we now live in a cozy little solar powered, recycled bungalow a mile deep in our woods in the Western Hills of Maine with our two brilliant home-schooled teenage daughters and our three cats.
