Maine | Acadia - Photographer  •Currently: Artist in residence at MDI Biological Laboratory - @mdibiolab •Prints, Tours, & Workshops ⬇️

Hi all! My workshops for this season are slowly starting to book up, pick a date, come hang out! I offer daily tours/workshops for one or two people at a time. Very intimate and completely customized for you. One option is to visit spots that aren't on other people's radars, like the one pictured here, it's a great way to get unique photos of the area... if you don't mind a short hike. Visit www.acadiaworkshops.com for bookings or navigate your way through the link in my bio.

Here's another shot from Moose Island. Being out there felt more like Maine than anywhere else I've been. Does that make sense? The rainy weather probably helped, but I've seen rainy days before... I just can't explain it.

So I think I promised to post another shot from LaVerna Preserve... too bad! I'm posting this shot instead cuz I took it today. I was out on Moose Island, a private island off MDI accessible (with permission) by foot at low tide. It's a pretty cool spot. There's nothing out there except two trails, one that circumvents the island and one that cuts across. Oh, and good sea glass!

Okay, so, this place is crazy cool. I saw pics of this spot that @deannawrubleski and @ericreed9 posted a while back and swore I'd get out there to see LaVerna Preserve for myself. I visited in the afternoon, so of course the light wasn't great, but there was decent texture in the clouds. I stacked layer upon layer of all sorts of filters in front of my lens and was able to create some fairly interesting photos. No doubt I'll spend some sunrises here in the near future.

Another shot from my visit to Pemaquid Point yesterday. The lighthouse is cool and all... but those rocks! Why didn't anybody tell me about this? That said, Pemaquid Point was just a bonus, I had traveled down there to scout LaVerna Preserve. Photos from that place soon. Oh, and clearly I used a ten second shutter delay for this shot.

I'd never been here, so when I arrived yesterday, 20 minutes before sunset, it was a scramble. I saw all these details I liked and composed them all together and ended up creating a shot where some random tree became the focal point. The leading lines where really working against me here. I tried to break them up with this massive boulder, which helped, and then my wife and dog appeared in the shot. Instead of waving them out I gave them the close to impossible task of standing still and facing in the same direction. Still a cool shot... and better than my wife expected, she said her whole view was the side of the little red house.

I've stared at these roots a dozen times thinking to myself, someday I'll take a photo of them. Yesterday was the day. Shots like these really push the limits of conventional photography. All of my images are captured with one single frame. I don't use focus stacking, so being so close to the foreground while maintaining acceptable sharpness in the background becomes a challenge and pushes the lens to its limit. I don't bracket exposures, I don't use HDR, and I don't like the affect that grad ND filters have on fog, so I have to expose the shadows as much as possible without overexposing and losing detail in the highlights. Also, I'm tall, so getting this close to the ground in a confined area ain't easy either.

Not much of a sunrise this morning but still some pretty cool skies. I went grocery shopping after this, picked up some manager's special organic chicken breasts, then stopped at Eagle Lake on my home and photographed some roots while fog lifted off the mountains in the background. I guess I could've just posted that instead of describing it but I'm still trying to decide if it should be black and white or not. I very rarely convert to black and white, and usually only when I envision the scene that way. So, yeah... maybe later.

My wife told me that I need someone editing these captions before I post them. I guess they're full of spelling errors, things like, you're vs. your and typing S instead of A. For example: I took s photo of s rock vs. I took a photo of a rock (they're right next to each other on the keyboard). Anyway, its not s big deal, rite?

Just stuck this bad boy in the mail... okay, it was a tad more complicated than that. Also, I photoshopped myself into the shot to give scale, I have a wingspan of over six feet. You know you want one of these hanging above your fireplace.

Can you tell when I'm busy? It's usually when I promise things like posting more water shots and then days later I finally post one. How does one not find time to post a stupid picture of stupid water to stupid Instagram, right? It's the editing that takes time. So once I'm done making sure all the lichen is sharp and the water doesn't have any dust spots in it I'll post some more photos, okay? Oh, and sorry water, I don't really think you're stupid.

I went out this morning and had the opportunity for a couple of potentially great shot but due to circumstances beyond my control I captured neither. I still felt accomplished having put the effort in, especially since it was the chaos of nature and not my own shortcomings that prevented the images from happening. This shot is not from this morning, I'd been taking advantage of the wet weather and snow melt over the past week. More water shots to come.
