Editors Picks 2007-2010
These are some of my "early successes"...
These photographs capture the artful uniqueness of nature and our surroundings
For those of you who have never been here, you can enjoy some of the beauty of the state through these photos. We don't call it "the way life should be" for nothing!
I live in the southern coastal region and don't get many opportunties to travel inland and north. However, when I do I will be bringing along the camera so I can better represent the beauty of the entire state.
If you are thinking of coming here for a visit, email me at email@example.com and I would be happy to give you some insights on what to see from a local viewpoint.
Flowers and garden gifts
I have been a gardener since my mother and grandmothers' first started me off by helping them weed in their wonderful gardens. I haven't met a flower yet that I didn't want to photograph. Here is a sampling of the better ones.
Birds & Wildlife
Here are some animals that I've been fortunate enough to photograph.
Since I shoot a wide variety of subjects, I needed to add this "catch all" category.
Neighboring New Hampshire
While I don't travel there often, I want represent the beauty of NH as much as Maine. Here are a few captures from there. Live Free or Die!
These photos were all taken on the beautiful 7 mile beach of Old Orchard/Pine Point/Camp Ellis.
Family, friends and pets
Occasionally, I am able to convince family, friends and pets to pose for a photo op.
Western New York
Here are a few photographs from around my hometown/home state. As I return for more visits, I will add more content to the page. It is a very beautiful, yet in many ways, desolate area. I wanted to capture some of the beauty and reality of the landscape. The economy has never been strong there, and some of the buildings you see reflect that.
Holiday cards - think ahead to the holiday season of 2012!
Never to soon to order!. I am offering custom-made, high-quality blank note cards (4x6 photo mounted on a 5x7 card) for you to send to your friends and family. Any quantity from 1 to 1000 - I stand ready to help you share Maine with the people on your holiday card list. Pricing ranges from $3 per card for 1 card, $5 for 2 cards, $10 for 5 cards and quantities larger than that will be discounted appropriately. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org! I will "split" the cost of shipping with you if you do not live locally. Don't forget to consider gifting someone with a photograph of Maine if you think they would like a unique gift reminding them of our fine state.
As you will see from my site, I prefer to shoot landscapes and flowers primarily, although if you check out Artistic Reflections, Assorted Topics and Family & Pets pages you will see that I do branch out occasionally.
