- 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 2006 - WK#14 - Fessenden Tor
Luna rises nigh
as we four journey upward
on our mountain high.
Tracey and I took our grrrls up onto the top of the mountain that we live on this afternoon after Nicole's 9th Birthday party. We needed to work off all of the cake and ice cream and we've sadly not been up to the summit of Fessenden Tor for over a year even though we are right here all the time. I needed a break from Photoshop yesterday and so I took my daily walk up to see how it might have changed. I went further over onto another ridge that I'd not been to before because I noticed that there is a well worn path over the other side and was excited to show everyone the great views from that side of the mountain as well, so we packed some water, matches and a good knife, grabbed some stout walking sticks and up we climbed as Luna rose up in the East South East....
Trace and our grrrls on the ridge.
Trace took a shot of me with them too (which is a rare treat, because I'm usual behind the camera and don't get enough photos taken with my daughters.)
