Hospitality - Press Hotel

In the last year there have been several hotels opening their doors in downtown Portland. It is amazing to see so many new options available to travelers. I would like to think that this is a testament to how great our little city is. Fortunately for us, we have collaborated with many of these new hotels creating images for editorial and advertising purposes. A few months ago we had the pleasure of photographing one of the rooms of the up-and-coming Press Hotel.

We are now able to share with you the images we created and will have some more to share in the future as we gear up to create more images this week. I can't wait to see the finished hotel open its doors. Located in the former Press Herald building, the hotel incorporates the building's history into its beautiful interior design, showcasing artwork from some of Maine's most respected and talented artists such as Angela Adams and John Bisbee.  So if you have visitors from out of town, make sure to point them in the direction of The Press Hotel, accepting reservations sometime this spring.

American Craft Magazine - Lissa Hunter

Lissa Hunter, a multimedia artist, stands surrounded by her artwork in her studio in Portland Maine.
I just received my copy of the April/May Issue of American Craft Magazine and was excited to see the images we produced while photographing Artist Lissa Hunter. We had a great time photographing Lissa who is such a multifaceted artist. She works in a multitude of media and having a look at her Portland studio provides a timeline of her evolution as an artist. In her studio you can see paintings, works covered in encaustic wax, ceramic, paper, charcoal and coiled baskets. Some of her work showcases a delicate mixture in a single piece of many of the skills and media she has worked with throughout her artistic career.

If you are not familiar with Lissa's work, I would encourage you to visit her website and have a look at the wonderful work she produces. Meeting people like Lissa is just one of the reasons why I love my job as much as I do. Hope you enjoy the images.

Old Port Magazine - Spring Cover

Two women sit on a bench in early spring overlooking Casco Bay and the docked sailboats outside of Portland, Maine.

With temperatures as frigid as they have been I am sure we are all looking forward to spring. I know I cant wait to start creating more images outdoors and engage in activities that allow me to enjoy the sunshine. Looking forward to that, I wanted to share with you today the latest cover I shot for Old Port Magazine. Hope you enjoy it and makes you daydream a little about what you will do once you can go outside without having to wear layer upon layer of clothing.

What is it you are looking forward to do the most when spring finally arrives?
