My inspiration comes from living in Maine where nature is the true artist, my job is to capture what has been so beautifully laid out before me. I walk out the door of my home each day and I’m truly amazed at the beauty that surrounds me. Living in the northern section of Maine inspires me to be a part of this world of living things and the vast outdoors. I do my best to be out in nature every day taking pictures, but at the same time try to have as little impact on our natural resources as possible. Capturing the beauty around me with my camera, but at the same time leaving it exactly as it was so others coming after me can see it as I witnessed it.

A few years ago I got my first digital camera and mainly used it to take photos for web site designing. I’m now on my fourth camera, and since that first camera my photo taking has taken on a whole different direction. I gradually started taking hikes into the great Maine outdoors and photographing wharever I found of interest and found out that what interested me also interested a lot of other people. Maine’s four seasons are forever giving me something new to discover so I’ll keep photographing my discoveries and hope you’ll continue on this path with me.

Winter's Here

The calendar says Maine’s winter shouldn’t arrive for another week or so, but the view outside my window says it’s here, and here to stay. My aching back says it’s here too, the weather man told us to expect 1 to 2 inches of snow when we woke up yesterday morning, it turned out to be 11 to 12 inches of fresh snow. It was really a winter wonderland, and once I shoveled myse…
