Just a quick note that I’m starting an opt-in only email list – you can sign up for it here. I’ll send out notes about once a month with news about my photography, links to articles, previews of new work, and special offers for subscribers. I’d love for you to sign up if you are interested!
That is the name of the week-long workshop at Maine Media Workshops that I’m starting tomorrow. I’m a sucker for a good name – I even took a constitutional law course in law school entitled “Love and Death” in an homage to the Woody Allen movie. (The subject, incidentally, was gay marriage, right to die, and abortion. )
I’m incredibly excited about the opportunity to take this course and in particular taking it with Todd Hido, a photographer whose work I greatly respect. As you may have guessed, it is about night photography – a genre I’ve been itching to start trying. I’ll tell everyone all about it in a little over a week!
And, finally, a new image of mine that was taken in broad daylight but reminds me a bit of the dark night (a bit like Caponigro’s universe apple if you’ve seen that). Bonus points to anyone who knows where this is…
You can find my photography Facebook page here. Hope to see you there…
I thought it might be interesting to select and post my favorite photographs from 2009. With one Rocky Mountain-derived exception, they are all from Maine. I believe that 2009 represented a significant step forward in my photography in all aspects, and I’m optimistic that 2010 will be even better. Without further ado, here are my favorites from the year – please feel free to comment if you have your own favorites from this list! And best wishes to everyone for a wonderful 2010!

I’ve just completed another big update of the galleries of my website. I’ve added three new galleries – a Favorites Gallery, a Flora Gallery, and an Other New England Gallery (which, at this point, includes CT and NH). The Favorites gallery will be my current favorite images – not necessarily the best sellers or the ones that others like best, but the ones that are my personal favorites as images. Over time new images will certainly kick some of these out, but as of the end of 2009, this is what I see as my best.
I’ve also added Portland, Maine images to my Cityscapes Gallery. Next up – winter images! I will hopefully be photographing quite a bit over the next few months and the Maine winter should obviously provide me many opportunities for winter photographs.
Today I’ve updated the Gallery of my website with quite a bit of new work. I’ve added two new sections – Maine Mountains & Lakes (as I venture further away from the coast) and Colorado (from a short trip this September). I’ve also added new work to the Acadia and Maine Coast galleries. Take a look and let me know what you think!
As a teaser, here are two of the new images – one from Baxter State Park in Maine and one from Colorado.

I’ve just uploaded new images from Cape Cod onto my website. These images were actually taken last summer – we only had about 3 days where I could photograph and I am very pleased with the results. We had some spectacular light. Most of the shots were taken either at First Encounter Beach or the Fort Hill/Nauset Marsh area.
Let me know in the comments if you have any favorites. A few selections are below:
I was ecstatic to learn at the opening of the Maine Photography Show 2009 that my image Moonrise, Penobscot Bay was awarded First Place in the Color Category and Best in Show! You can find news stories about the show in the Maine Sunday Telegram, among other locations. See the previous post for a large copy of the image…
The Maine Photography Show is up through this weekend in Boothbay Harbor.
I’ve just completed a major overhaul of my photography website. Some of the photographs are the same as before, but I’ve focused the website on my current work. Almost all of the images are from the last few years (and thus in square format). I should have new galleries up soon – flora, Cape Cod, Inland Maine, and more cityscapes are all in work. Please tell me if you see any problems with the website or have any suggestions. Enjoy!
Best wishes to all for a wonderful 2009!
