- 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.
All my life I've driven past these hills in Brownfield, Maine and have been very impressed with how they look in different light. I've never taken the time to stop and photograph them properly though. This morning, I woke up early and went to do just that. I used my Nikon D200 and made 13 vertical exposures of the morning light falling on the gorgeous orange canopy. This afternoon I created this panoramic photograph. the resulting image that I am going to print and mount is 12 inches high and 5 FEET long, but I've shrunk it down here to a mere 600X328 Pixels. If you are using Firefox you will be able to see it all in one shot OR pan across the entirety of it larger. Either way. I like it.
