Here is an article in the Boothbay Register about me and my show at the Southport Library, Southport, Maine. If visiting the mid coast Maine area, be sure to stop by. Library hours are Tuesdays, Thursday, and Saturday 9 - 4 and Tuesday and Thursday evenings 7 - 9. For those who can't see the show, I put together a Southport Library Show Gallery on my website with the 48 images that are displayed there. Thanks for having a look.

Photography has been my hobby, my passion for close to 40 years.My photographic journey began when, as a teenager, I bought my first camera, a 35mm Minolta range finder with the money I earned from a summer job.

Upate!  This image won 3rd Place in the B&W Category! 
One of my images, Celestial was selected for the 8th Annual Maine Photography Show 2013.  This image is an ice abstract taken on a frozen pond in Sudbury, MA.  This will be the seventh year one of my images has been selected for this prestigious show. 
I dedicate this image to my mom-in-law Pat who died on March 30, 2013 at the age of 94.  She attended each opening with me the six previous years my images were chosen and also helped in many other ways. She also traveled with me to Cape Breton many times on my photo adventures there.

The Maine Photography Show  is the annual premier juried gallery show of photography in Maine.  It is organized by The Boothbay Region Art Foundation (BRAF) of which I am a member.  This year's juror for MPS 2013 is the nationally known nature photographer Tony Sweet.

My processed film from my Scotland trip arrived the other day and I have started to scan, process, and upload some images.  The first was taken at sunrise on Durness Beach, Sutherland Scotland on a Transient Light Masterclass with Ian Cameron and three other fellow photographers.  I was delighted with the outcome of this image.  While the brilliant light of the sun my not be to everyone's liking, it does express the glorious light and color I experienced that wonderful morning.  After getting up at 2:30 AM, that light and color made it all worth it.

I just returned from an amazing trip to Caithness and Sutherland in the north of Scotland on a Transient Light Master Class with Ian Cameron and three other wonderful folk.  Great company, amazing light, and beautiful weather..... what more can you ask for?  Cotton candy pink clouds floating above a glowing Ben Loyal as the sun set.
