Schoodic Sculpture Symposium.

This was one of 6 pieces I shot in Down East, Maine.  This one, by Hitoshi Tanaka is in Blue Hill.  Fantastic clouds prevailed.  This shot has not been altered, but I lit the sculpture with my studio strobes to get the dramatic contrast against the background.


Eastport, Maine

This week I was up.. no, down-east.  I finally made it to the most easterly point of our United States; the Easport and Lubec area.  I was there to shoot sculpture installations- products of last year’s Schoodic Sculpture Symposium.  I was concerned about timing… the rain, shoots for Maine Magazine, return to NYC on Sunday.   The skies were magnificent in the photographs. It only rained once where we had to pull the lights under cover.  Gee wiz.  But, it all worked out. Thank you, God.

I love stone sculpture.  

Special thanks to my new friend Jesse Salisbury check out his work. It’s big and awesome.

June Cover of World Magazine

Well, I know I may be biased, but I think this has to be one of World Magazine’s best covers ever.  A boy, a nuzzling horse, and a dog.  How can you go wrong?

The little boy is Brayden of Lander, Wyoming.  The story is about an organization called “Father’s in the Field” and it’s pretty great.  I’m glad we made the cover for June.

Wyoming landscape, beautiful horses, and fantastic people; I shot easily a thousand images in a day and it’s going to take some time to absorb and edit the treasure sitting on my harddrive.  Look for more in the coming weeks.

6:45am Thursday. Catching a very small plane back from Riverton, WY to Denver. I’m actually a little sad to leave.  Wyoming is beautiful and the people were real. I’m really excited for this story to run. I got some great images.
