- 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.
My lovely bride (evidently bemused that I keep taking her photo at restaraunt tables after nearly 25 years together.)
A Saturday evening out after an early wedding. Kids were at the parents so we caught a movie at the Magic Lantern. Maybe our last movie ever there as the building is sinking and they are going to tear it down and replace it soon. We went to Ricky's Diner for a late breakfast at 11pm afterwards.
What looks to be a Schooner set sail on Portland's Casco Bay.
I know I said that I wanted to show a Maine that is not nautical to the cliche, but I photographed a wedding on Peaks Island in Casco Bay and saw this on the ferry back to Portland. It fits in to the blue and gold theme that seems to be running in my photos this year so here it is.
My weddings will be finished for the year soon and I'll try to put more effort into my own neighborhood for the last quarter of 2005.
We took an excursion trip on the dining car "Chocorua" on the Conway Scenic Railroad in North Conway NH (just across the state line) the other day. It was a fun way to spend a few hours on a Thursday afternoon.
We'd like to take the Cog Railway train up Mt. Washington sometime, but it is pretty expensive and the top of Washington is already near freezing in the daytime this time of year.
