A new photo of the Deer Isle Bridge taken last week, just two days before the full moon rise, which made for very faint star trails.  It's a 15 minute exposure and I was thrilled to find NO mosquitoes in evidence--much more pleasant to stand around in the dark then!

Two of my favorite new shots of Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, Maine from a few weeks ago.

I visited the beautiful and iconic little Owl's Head Light well before dawn last Monday and had a wonderful time.  I got there before the birds even began singing--imagine what time I had to leave my house in Portland to get to Mid-Coast Maine.  (Psst--I'll give you a hint: it was 3am!)

I'm calling this one, as you might well imagine, It Happens. . .  Once again, a shot from Stonington Harbor. . .  I'm trying to go through the photos a bit slower than my last trip, so I can enjoy them for a longer time!  I processed my Acadia trip so fast, it was over in a week!  :-)

Well, some harbors are definitely MORE photogenic, I must say. . .  But most of our harbors are quite pretty, yes!

A couple of weeks ago, I drove up to Five Islands waaaayyyy before dawn and got a few shots I liked before dawn actually happened (believe it or not, it was quite the underwhelming sunrise).  But afterwards, driving home past the Androscoggin Walking Bridge in Brunswick, I was able to capture some shots of the bridge with 20-30 foot sea mist wafting past that I was very happy with!  Thanks for the invitation to the group!

How did I miss this?  Had my nose in film developer I guess :).  Very nice, Cindy!

A new shot from Deer Isle this past week--taken a bit after 9 pm, I only did a 15 minute exposure because the moon was two days away from being full and it was VERY bright out, which already made the star trails fainter. But it was a beautiful night and I worked with what I had.  I love this bridge!  You can see this here: https://cfwphotography.smugmug.com/Portfolio/Landscape-Nature/Deer-Isle-Maine/

I think I still have a couple of photos beyond these two from my shoot two Saturdays ago on Deer Isle, Maine.  I liked so many of the other shots better than the croporama of Stonington in this album, but that was the one that was explored by flickr.  I always wonder how they decide, or how they get "noticed". . .  Strange, isn't it?

True, both of you-but what I like is usually what sells to Maine office of tourism and visit Portland and magazines, but never to the competitions... I suck at competition, probably because I have sort of a commercial/editorial bent to begin with! :)

Two more shots from Saturday evening's sunset shoot on Deer Isle.  I'm so glad I took the time to explore around a bit!

I was visiting my mother for her birthday over the past weekend and got a chance to go around Deer Isle a bit near, during and after sunset--I'd never seen this little boat before, right in Stonington Harbor, but I thought it was adorable and immediately mentally titled the shot: Noah's Ark?

Story
Tagline
Commercial Editorial Photographer in Portland, Maine
Introduction
I am a commercial/editorial photographer based in Portland, Maine.  I shoot with a Pentax K5 dSLR and feel out of sorts if I am not out (or in) somewhere with my trusty camera in front of my face. I provide images for Maine Office of Tourism and Visit Portland.  Pentax recently selected me as a Pentax Professional. I am Portland Magazine's Contributing Photographer. My photographs have been published in Popular Photography, Old House Journal, Yankee Maggazine, Maine Food and Lifestyle Magazine, Digital Camera World Magazine, in England, Portland Magazine, and Maine Food & Lifestyle Magazine. I have shown my work in the Terrell Lester Gallery in Deer Isle, Maine, and have a gallery of matted work at Kennedy Studios in Portland. My camera has big dreams of someday working for magazines like Architectural Digest, dwell, National Geographic and Smithsonian Magazine, and I hope we can do that together!
