- 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#38 - Jockey Cap
we climbed jockey cap
the hill overlooks Fryeburg
only a short walk
Late summer is the time that we really like to get out and enjoy Maine. The weather is perfect for outdoor activities and we need the exercise. These are views from the top of Jockey Cap a small hill (barely a 1/4 mile walk to the top) that gets you up overlooking the valley wherein lies Fryeburg, Maine and the mighty Saco river. The horizontal shot here is looking across the valley out to the White Mountain National Forests and the Presidential Range. Mt. Washington is in the middle of this shot. In another month Mt. Washington will be covered with bright white snow at the top and will stay that way for most of the following 12 months. It seems only in late Summer that it is all green.
