Tiny Homes - Down East Magazine

When we got a call from Director of Photography Mark Fleming, about collaborating with Down East Magazine in a project about tiny homes we were super excited. We have been impatiently waiting to be able to share some of the images from the shoot with you. The shoot took us to several remote Maine locations, one of which could only be reached by chartering a small plane. The homeowners were all a pleasure to work with and hearing what they had to say about their small homes was as interesting as the homes themselves. Regardless of their different lifestyle choices it was evident that they were all proud of their homes and the resulting living spaces were the product of a labor of love.

To see more of these tiny homes pick up a copy of the current issue of Down East Magazine.

The Art Issue Cover

As some of you may be aware, I relocated to Maine from Arizona just about a decade ago. Ever since I moved here I have fallen in love with the state for many reasons. Of course there are the obvious reasons like its natural beauty and the fact that there is always a new dining option to explore. But one of the other reasons I love this state is its thriving art scene. I have been fortunate to photograph many talented artists that excel at what they do such as Robert Indiana, John Bisbee and Alan Magee to name a few. When I got the call for this assignment I was excited to learn that this time we would be photographing Donna Mcniel who is the former director of the Maine Arts Commission and a long time arts advocate.

To learn more about Donna we invite you to have a look at the Art Issue of Maine Home + Design on newsstands throughout April.

American Craft Magazine - Artist Roberto Lugo

In our line of work we have the opportunity of meeting many talented, creative and amazing individuals. Photographing Artist Roberto Lugo was certainly a treat. His passion for his craft is undeniable and extends beyond the simplicity of creating beautiful ceramic objects. He uses his vision to shed light on issues such as poverty, race, inequality and the human experience in general. By doing so his pieces transcend what simply meets the eye and allow us to peer into Lugo's personality and upbringing.

To learn more about Roberto Lugo check out the April/May issue of American Craft Magazine published by the American Craft Council.

Tempo Dulu - Portland, Maine

In the last few years we have collaborated with several companies within the Hospitality industry and one of our favorite clients has been The Camden Harbour Inn. The Inn is part of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux family. Needless to say, when the owners of the Camden Harbour Inn approached us to photograph their new venture The Danforth Inn and their restaurant Tempo Dulu we knew we were in for a treat. The interior design in both Inns is just amazing and we encourage you to enjoy a stay with them next time you visit Maine.

Today we wanted to share with you a couple ads that were created with some of our images. The ads were designed by Mark Woodbury of Woodbury Creative. We also had the unexpected surprise to see one of our images make it to the cover of Portland Magazine.


As we move forward with our work in the hospitality industry we look forward to sharing with you some more images of the work we create.

Press Hotel Book

Last year we had the fortune of collaborating with The Press Hotel located in Portland, Maine. We created images that showcased the architecture and amazing interior design. The Press Hotel is  located in the former Press Herald building. It has a beautiful art gallery and installations created by local artists Matt Hutton and Erin Hutton  that pay homage to the buildings history.

As a thank you to our clients at The Press we decided to create a custom book that included several of the images we created throughout the project. We did all the layout and printing in-house and collaborated with Scott Mullenberg from Mullenberg Designs in creating the book. One of the things that caught my eye from the hotel was its custom wallpaper. We decided to incorporate it into the book cover and we must say we are very pleased with the results.

The book was a hit with our clients who decided to have us create a few more copies to be shared with some of the investors. In this post we would like to share with you some images and a small video showcasing the final book. Hope you like it as much as we do. If you ever visit Maine I would recommend you stop by and have a look at The Press and have some of the delicious food at Union the restaurant located within the hotel.
