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 2006 - Wk 21 - Wet Forest

hard rains fell, drops cling
bright green leaves on ebon bark
birds sing tart yet sweet

These, of course are bright green leaves on bright white bark, but lovely none the less.


PAW 2006 - Wk#20 - Forest

walking the forest
to photograph its spirit
some see only trees

It was time for a change. This is the new wallpaper for my Blog.


PAW2006 - Wk# 18 - Blackflies

blackfly season sucks
its not the mud that bothers
so much as blood loss

PAW 2006 - Wk# 17 - Beltaine

Beltaine at Popham
another spring halfway gone
where does the time go?

This marked the 24th annual Beltaine at Popham beach. I wrote about it at great length last year so won't repeat the story again this year. The event continues to grow. As this photo shows, we actually had to use 5 maypoles this year because of the size of the crowd!


these geese fly northward
returning from winters' rest
Canada or Bust.

During our trip to Popham Beach, these Canadian Geese flew over in perfect formation.
Here is a longer shot on the beach of the same birds...
