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.


25th Annual Beltaine at Popham Beach

The last few years I've been lucky not to have booked events on the same day as the Beltaine celebrations at Popham Beach State Park. I posted a complete write up on what it is all about in 2005 and some photos last year. Both previous posts may be found HERE.

Here are my favourites from this year which was the silver anniversary of this celebration:

(Grove of 4 ver.2.0
playing in the sand.)

(An artistic view of a lone beach walker.)

(Jumping the Broom and getting Wed. A Beltaine Handfasting!)

The Worst of the Flood Photos

The water hit this culvert so hard that it lifted it out of the road.


The Deluge of '07

Dateline: 16APR07...Denmark, ME.
This Nor'easter was supposed to dump over a foot of snow on us last night and all today. It turned over to rain early evening on Sunday and has caused substantial flood damage to many of the roads here in Denmark (though unlike much of Maine, we still have electricity.) The town has asked me to go out and document the damages to our roads and streets. I'm waiting for one of the town's trucks to pick me up, because I'm pretty sure that my little Kia Rio (above) will sink if I tray to take it out the mile long dirt road that connects us to civilisation. (or what is left of it.)

I'll post more photos if they are dramatic at all.
