Downeast Property

This spring I’ve been driving all over for real estate photos – this collection includes Belfast, Stockton Springs & downtown Bangor!

Dynamic Dirt

Last year, I stood in the pouring rain to photograph this event and wound up with poison ivy for six weeks. This time around, I woke up at 430AM to try again. Again, it was dark and cloudy. Rain was supposed to start at any minute. Different lens, different strategy. Am I sure which was […]

Winter Real Estate

Winter is not the most popular time for real estate photography. With bad weather, snowy exteriors at best and dirty, muddy exteriors at worst, it can be difficult to capture anything worth showing. Sometimes you get some blue sky, lots of sun, and make due with the snow. One house shown here was for an […]

Color Me Rad Maine

Yellow! On a warm, sunny morning I drove down to Brunswick for the Color Me Rad and took up my position at the yellow color station. After what I thought were some of the worst photos I’ve ever taken at the Color Run in South Portland in the rain, I wanted to walk away with […]

A Rainy Day in South Portland

The forecast called for rain and wind and there I was up early to drive to South Portland, Maine to shoot another Color Run. As I arrived at the parking lot, the deluge began and I was hesitant to get out of the car. It was about a mile walk to my shooting position and […]

Walking the Plank

Dynamic Dirt Challenge

Last Sunday I was at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine shooting the Dynamic Dirt Challenge for Gameface Media. There wasn’t anything easy about this job but it was a hell of a lot of fun! After waking up at 4:30 AM, I drove to the race, picked up my memory cards, and then spent […]

Lightroom 6 & Real Estate

With the announcement of new features in Lightroom 6, namely HDR and Photomerge, I immediately wondered how useful they would be for real estate work. The short answer – Not Very. Less than a mile away, a new 4,000 square foot house hit the market with some astonishingly bad photos and I wanted to try […]

Color Me Rad

On April 26th, Color Me Rad descended upon Manchester, NH and I was there with Gameface Media to shoot the event. My assignment was to take pre & post-race photos at the finish line and stage area. A standard zoom lens would have been ideal if I owned one! I wrapped up my camera to […]

Mike & Mark Thompson

Groomsmen

While a wedding might be all about the bride, some memorable images can be made when you have a group of guys that are just having fun. Check out a few moments with the groomsmen at the Thompson wedding… The Very Serious Group Pose The “Everyone Hold Someone Else’s Suspenders” Shot The Album Cover Shot […]

River Sunrise

Bangor Color Run

As I walk down to the waterfront, all I am thinking is that I hope I don’t have to shoot purple again. It would be nice to have a new color to mix things up, but in the end, I’m stationed at the 4k mark and the organizers have decided that the color station will […]

Muddy Team

Mudderella

It’s a Saturday morning. My assignment – The Finish Line. Pose groups (or individuals) as they complete the course and capture 2-4 images of every single person. There are something like 11,000 people here. The first wave goes out at 740am. I’ve been awake since 4am. Where is the finish line? Backlit by the sun […]

Purple Cloud Portland Color Run

South Portland Color Run

This past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot the Color Run on the campus of the South Portland Community College with Flo-Foto as a hired hand. Admittedly, I was a little out of my element – I don’t usually shoot thousands of moving subjects, I don’t generally shoot JPG or leave my photos unedited, […]

Labradoodle Portrait

Labradoodles

Over Easter weekend, I had a session with Peggy & Nellie, two labradoodles that had just gotten their haircuts (aka some surprise grooming). Before arriving, I had to ask how large a labradoodle was because for some reason their name makes me think of a small dog, however they are actually quite large and weigh […]

A Week in Ocho Rios, Jamaica

This idea started with Groupon. We needed a vacation. A week on the beach at an all-inclusive resort sounded great, but where would we go? Costa Rica? Dominican Republic? Puerto Rico? Based on the dates we wanted to travel, Costa Rica was out as it was going to be dry and brown instead of its […]

Interiors & HDR

As I shoot more interiors, I keep looking for ways to balance the interior and exterior lighting. More often than not, the brightness outside is many times greater than the lighting of any room and either results in blown out windows or very dark looking rooms. Advanced planning is usually required to address the differences […]
