- 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.

We spent much of Sunday in Portsmouth, NH and then wound our way up Rt. 1A through York, Wells and Ogunquit. This is a shot of us in front of one of Tracey's favourite gardening shops. I'm wearing a Utilikilt. This one is my sage green "survival" kilt, but I also own the khaki "mocker" and a black "original" kilt. I don't wear shorts in the summer any more. Utilikilts rock.
No my little SD300 doesn't have a fisheye lens. This was shot in a garden reflection ball and then I played with the perspective with the shareware PTLens filter in photoshop to mostly undistort most of the image. I cropped square because it fit the image better.
