If you’ve poked around the site at all (I highly recommend it) you’ll notice that I have no problem sharing some personal images. If you want to know what it’s like to work with me, check out the pained (errr…. I meant joyful) look on my family’s faces during this recent trip to Maine.

For those who want the technicals… everything was made on a Sony A7, except for two that were done on an iPhone, and one that was done on a gopro. Lenses were generally a Sony 28mm f2 or a Canon FD 50mm f1.2. with an FD 35mm and a FD 135mm making one appearance each.

Summer in Maine, Part 1

A summer trip to my home state of Maine is just about the best thing in the world, second only TWO summer trips to the Maine coast.

Betsy and the boys left on a Saturday and I stayed around to shoot a project at the Acadia Institute of Oceanography, which I attended when I was just a wee little lad. So, on a beautiful Saturday morning, we made some images. Here's a sampling:

Stay tuned for Part 2, coming very soon.
