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.


Elliot. Teacher...Artist...Lust for Creative Life.

Elliot lives on Walton Street in Portland and has turned his yard into an exploration of found art from the neighborhood. He is overjoyed and excited to share the experience with anyone who has sincere interest. He is a retired 5th grade teacher and as a lust for life that is contagious. The day I visited, he had just had a visit from a van full of developmentally challenged young adults. They and he had had a wonderful time exploring the ever changing installations.
Elliot is certainly one of the cool people who make Portland a really neat place for a city.

Sadly Elliot Burton was struck by a car on the 8th of March, 2014 on Forest Avenue in Portland and died of his injuries a few days later on the 11th of March, 2014. The world has lost a unique and interesting person.
