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 48 - Band Shots

My friend James W Lindenschmidt is the guitarist for the band Freakwitch.

A few weeks ago, Jim emailed me and asked if they could hire me to make some photographs or their promo use.
I hadn't done band promo shots for quite some time. While I'm no Kyle Cassidy, it sounded like a fun project since I was already friends with Jim and Matt (the troubadour in purple with the voice 'up front') and know them to be quite creative. The shoot yielded 70 photographs or so. These are three of my favourites...

(It is hard to find someplace that looks Urban in Portland, Maine. This is the city sanctioned 'grafitti wall' on the Eastern Prom near the Water Treatment Factility. I didn't even know it existed until this shoot.)
