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.


New Editions

I have recently added a 1952 Leica IIIf Red Dial to my 'just for fun' cameras as well as trading my venerable old IIIc to my dear friend Kevin for his rarely used 1954 Rolleiflex MV-EVS with the Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 75/3.5 lens!

I hope to mostly use these for my BLOG photos in the near future. The point and shoot Canon is nice because it is so small, but there is a definite glee in using film for fun in cameras that are over half a century old and made so well.

Those look really fun. Do you do any TTV photography? I'd like to experiment with it someday.

TTV=Through the Veiwfinder Photography (I had to look that up!)
I have been making photographs with the TLR (Twin Lens Reflex...pictured above the the smaller Leica).
I've owned a Mamiya C330 TLR and my first medium format camera was a Yashica Mat124G. The Mamiya has lenses that you can change out, but it is HUGE so I sold it a long time ago for far more than I paid for it. I ruined the Yashica by stupidly putting a Russian finder on because the Russian finder (from a Practika 6?) had a mirror for eye level use like most Rolleis have...It is now for sale at the PhotoMarket in Portland. It all still works well enough, but it just wasn't the same as the Rollei that I was pretending that it was. I've just got a lust for German cameras, what can I say?

I've always wanted an affordable classic Rolleiflex and a nice Leica that I can actually use without worrying about harming their resale value. Now I have one or each and am very much enjoying them.
