- 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.
The Web Bard
Alas, I have fallen behind in my PAW responsibilities. I shot my first wedding of the 2005 season last Saturday and have been working on processing all of those images, but mostly, I blame my good friend Kevin in the photo above. (Actually taken a couple of months ago.)
See, Kevin is a professional webspinner and he has completely made over my business site this last week and of course, I've been all consumed with dumping more and more work on him by saying "what if we tried this" or "what about that style" and "do you thik this would work" You know...in general, just making a pain of myself. To his credit he didn't kick my ass and he cheerfully set about the task of providing my business the first professional website it has ever had.
Check out the site for yourself and you will see what a fantastic job he has done. ESPECIALLY compared to the OLD site that I had patched togther over the last 7 years mostly with Notepad and 'borrowed' HTML.
The very time consuming to build new photo gallery layouts should be up by this weekend...In the mean time, I've made a mess of the whole thing by being impatient and putting the site live using the old gallery format. As soon as Kevin gets his own personal site up, I will be very happy to recommend him as a top notch webdesign guy.
