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.



I've made the full transition to FaceBook (like most of the rest of the world) and so have pointed the Domain Name '' toward my FB profile. The final straw was that I referred someone here and hadn't realised that Posterus had gone away taking most of the photos I had linked here from there with it meaning that I have broken links for most of my 2010 posts here. I will leave this Blogspot site here as it serves as the history of my earlier PAW (Photo a Week) projects and documents a good bit of my daughters growing up, but I will likely not update it much in the future.


New Work Blog and New Website

The few regular readers of this Blog will notice that I've not been all that diligent in keeping up with personal work here in the last half year or so. I've been adding quite a few photos to my FaceBook Albums, but the double entry thing is tough to keep up with so this place has suffered for it.

Now, I've had completely redesigned to reflect the broader scope of photography that I have always done for business but had never really advertised and have also decided that I should have a 'work' Blog linked to the 'work' site instead of my 'personal' Blog there linked, so I've created THIS BLOG as a 'work' Blog to showcase my current assignments.

This page will continue to exist as a good example of my personal work 2005-2011, but likely not be updated a whole lot more than it has been in recent months.


Updates from the trip to Monterey, CA

Tracey and I were hired to document a wedding in Monterey, CA and we made a family vacation of the week prior to the wedding. (Haven't had a 'real' vacation for almost a decade, so we took the grrrls and had some fun.) Here are the photos that I've put on FaceBook from the trip...

Big Sur and the Redwoods

Mission San Carlos Borromea del Rio Carmelo

The 17 Mile Drive on Pebble Beach

Monterey Museum of Art Gardens

Monterey and the Surrounding Area


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.

In Bloom, ForCynthia

When my mom was little my Nana used to tell her that Forcythia was "For Cynthia."
That has given me an extra smile while I've been enjoying these brilliant yellow expressions of New England waking up for a couple of weeks now.
Some of the other trees and bushes are also looking spectacular.
