I Don’t Do Lighthouses.

Really I don’t. Though these pictures may lead you to believe otherwise, lighthouses really don’t do much for me. Sure they’re pretty, they’re scenic, and they’re about as iconic New England as it gets, blah, blah, blah. Everything a lighthouse aficionado could possibly want. Still, even though there are several quite photogenic lighthouses within short… Read More

Fort Foster ~ Part 2: The Rocks (and maybe a lighthouse).

So Many Rocks! Sandy beaches are for relaxing on a hot July day, and Maine has them if that’s your thing. But, if you’re a seascape photographer a nice sandy beach can seem rather boring. Ok, I lied, sandy beaches aren’t “rather boring,” as far as I’m concerned smooth sandy beaches are the equivalent of… Read More

Fort Foster ~ Part 1: The Pier

My Favorite Fort. Located along the shore of Gerrish Island in Kittery Point, Fort Foster was once part of the U.S. coastal defense system. Active from 1901 thru 1946, the fort is now part of Fort Foster Park, and managed by the town of Kittery, Maine. The park is a year ’round favorite with everyone… Read More

First Light, A Little Late.

Happy New Year! My apologies for being a few days late. I was so preoccupied with putting together my end of the year post that I completely forgot to commemorate the beginning of the new one. Continuing a tradition I started over a decade ago I awoke bright and early on New Years Day and… Read More

12, Give Or Take, From The Fire.

2020, a year in through the lens. I know I’m not the only one who’s happy we’re finally putting the dumpster fire that was 2020 behind us. It was a year that started out strong for many of us, then cratered miserably for far too many. Coming through the last year unscathed creatively was no… Read More

Went to Maine.

Made some photos. My daughter and I got up bright and early and headed to the Maine coast for sunrise. Here are a few SOOC* images that I kind of liked. *that’s Straight Out Of Camera in case you were wondering. No editing, with the exception of straightening the horizon in the first image, just… Read More

Dancing With Waves At PHL.

Sunset over a Maine classic. It’s been several years since my last visit to this iconic lighthouse along the coast of Maine. Fortunately, a few weeks back my good friend Nate sent me last minute text to say he had the evening off from work and to ask if I would be interested in getting… Read More

Passion or Profit?

Do you photograph what you love or what will sell? A fairly simple question, but for those of us hoping of one day living the dream and becoming full time professional photographers, it’s a question that might not be so easy to answer. From the moment I sold my first print a thought occurred to… Read More
