- 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.

new flowers waiting
soon to ride the gentle winds
and seed our front lawn
Got a new D70s and a Sigma 18-50/2.8 lens for it. This was a test of both. At 70mm wide open at 2.8 the background is completely muted. It should be a fine portrait lens. (I was also about 4 inches away from the flower so the close up works well also.)
