- 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.
2005 - Week 4
(For those who care: Nikon D70, Nikkor 50/1.8. - 1/30 @ f/4.5 - Toned in PS.CS)
I belong to a PAW listserve and noticed that in looking at the excellent photos like those of the very talented Ms. Tina Manley (ASMP) that most of the shots I submit for the projects in the past largely lack any human element.
Because I want to get more photos of people into this PAW project I submit this week a snapshot that I made of my dear friend and grovemate Shaz, playing with a hand knit scarf that a mutual friend made for Yule.
