I have spent the past ten years photographing Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island. As a local resident and professional photographer, I share my intimate knowledge of Mount Desert Island and accomplished photographic skills on every safari.

Travel and landscape photography are in my blood. I have visited 6 continents, 33 countries and 28 states. Back in the 'film days' I traveled with two camera bodies, one with color film and one with black and white film. I would swap lenses depending on the picture I wanted to capture. 

My workshops are infused with my passion for photography, my enthusiasm for learning and teaching, and a love of Acadia National Park to create a valuable experience for all Acadia Photo Safari participants.
