- 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.
Blood Leaf Moon
The Blood Leaf Moon waning just two days past full.
Not much for spectacular foliage this year. This is one nice tree on the 'heater piece' up on hill but it you look closely you can see the damage that it sustained during the 1998 Ice Storm is still evident. The forest will recover pretty quickly on its own schedule in tree years, but it seems like it is taking quite a while in human years.
