Photographing lighthouses in Maine

Maine’s coast is hard to beat for great scenery and when you toss in a bunch of lighthouses it becomes a true visual treat. I hosted a workshop this weekend that started with driving from New Jersey and picking up people along the route to Portland in my 12 passenger Sprinter van. We had people from five states including Florida for the fast three day excursion and we photographed 10 lighthouses.  The weather was ideal giving us brilliant sunrises and […]

Final day in Acadia

Today was the last day of my Acadia Photography Workshop for this year. It was a great group who were a pleasure to work with and we made some wonderful pictures. It was cloudy so we didn’t have to wake up early for sunrise. We headed over to one of my favorite Acadia locations, Sieur de Monts, which is an area away from the coast but is extremely diverse. There is a beautiful grove of birch trees, long flowing bright […]

Making the most of a rainy day

Our streak of great weather ended and the rain has taken over at my Acadia Photography Workshop. We spent yesterday afternoon and this morning in the classroom, talking about light and looking at some of the photos we have made so far. It is always fun to look at photos made by everyone in the workshop, we are all at the same places but invariably come away with different images. Again, people had their own vision and saw things I […]

A day in Acadia

The bad thing about loving to shoot sunrise is that I have to get up before the sun. And when I’m in Maine at this time of year, sunrise comes way too early. So I got up at 4 a.m. and headed into Acadia National Park to see the sun rise and, as usual, it was worth the effort. I went to Monument Cove and was treated to beautiful light pouring onto the rocky coast. The first light of the […]

Finding something different during Acadia workshop

During my workshop today in Acadia National Park, we were on top of the world, or so it seemed. Cadillac Mountain is the highest coastal peak in the Eastern U.S. and many times during the year it is the first place in the U.S. to see the sunrise. It is quite the panoramic view and during a late morning journey to the top the sun was shining through some clouds and making the water shimmer. A small island seemed so […]

Making the best of a long drive home

Whenever I make a long drive, like to my Acadia National Park photography Workshop, I try to stop at interesting places during the drive. I plan to find places that are less than 30 minutes off the road so I can get there and back within an hour. I always think I only need a few minutes at a site to either scout it for a future serious shooting session or luck out and get something really good while I […]

Special Maine sunrise makes getting up early worth it

I’m not naturally an early morning person, but it is rare that I’m upset when I see the sun rise. Sunday was one of my favorite sunrises ever. I was along Flagstaff Lake in Stratton, Maine, as the sun rose in a clear sky. Fog filled the mountains and hovered over the lake, which was fine by me. I was on a narrow road that sliced through the water, so every direction I looked was water, mountains and fog. It […]

The great moose hunt in Maine

I made a quick run to western Maine for a long weekend. I’d been to coastal Maine several times but I hadn’t been to the inland area. I didn’t know where to go, but I didn’t want to drive forever, so I looked at a map for an area that had lots of lakes and less than five hours away from my Vermont home. I ended up in the Rangeley area and I was glad I did. It has the […]
