- 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 51 - Yule
After a long night of feasting, gift giving and rejoicing, they ventured out before dawn to walk across the crunchy frigid snows down to the circle to welcome the reborn Star in the East as their ancestors had done for centuries before them.
In the Western Hemisphere and the snowier parts of the North particularly, Yule marks the halfway point of the darkest half of the year (and so is also called MidWinter). It is a time to stay close to home and warm by the fires. A time to celebrate and enjoying the most precious gift of family and good friends. From now until Litha the Sun will grown stronger and give us more and more light and warmth.
