I was born in Maine and have been a commercial photographer working in Massachusetts for more years than I’m usually willing to admit. I discovered photography while stationed in Maine, finishing a tour of duty with the U. S. Coast Guard. Been at it so long it's difficult to imagine doing anything else and I've enjoyed pretty much every minute of it. I was a film shooter for most of my career working with 4x5, 8x10 and most small and medium format cameras. Film really was a little bit of magic. Once exposed it needed to be processed and often printed so darkroom expertise was indispensable but also way fun. I have been fully digital for many years and don't look back, too much, though I ocassionally miss the safelights and the smell of fixer. I have a studio on the 5th floor of the E. T. Wright Building, a very cool former shoe factory in Rockland that also houses the studios of 60+ artists and photographers. I love old buildings, barns, tools, cars, diners, etc. so this old shoe factory is perfect for me. I continue to do commercial work while pursuing a more personal vision of landscape and still life subjects many of which are found throughout my favorite Maine stomping grounds. I love Massachusetts also but I am a Mainer and will pretty much go any time and often on a whim. Maine is a magical place as most artists and photographers will affirm and I always take a deep sigh of relief when crossing the border. It just feels like home.
