My photo
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.


PAW 2005 - Wk 32 - Cross Process

I purchased a Zeiss Ikon 6X9cm camera this week that takes modern 120 film. I had a little fun with it in Portland's Old Port. This is the US Customs House that was built here on Fore St. between the years of 1867 and 1871. I shot this with a roll of Provia 100F slide film and had it cross processed in C41 chemistry. I've scanned it (on my flatbed as my local lab can only handle up to 6X7 negs) and taken some of the dust out.

The strange colour is from processing it in negative chemistry instead of reversal chemistry.
Sometimes it is fun just to play like this.

I like it.
