- 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 40 - First Fall Colour
It has been raining here like crazy all week and has been very unseasonably warm.
This is a branch from a maple in front of our home which has finally started to turn. I'm sure that I'll post more classic New England colour in the next few weeks as we approach a late peak season.
While fall foliage may seem definitive of a Maine cliche image, it is one of my abosolute favourite things about my state. Everything in this season gives up its last breath of life for the year by going out in a blaze of colour that holds us through the dark and grey times in winter
