About Bob

As a science teacher (retired) and park naturalist (Acadia National Park) the focus of my photography has been diverse but almost always centers around nature. From large panoramas to extreme close ups I’m always looking for that special light and composition that tells a story or poses a question.

My photography education has been largely self-directed. Courses at the Rhode Island School of Design opened my eyes to the beauty of simple yet evocative compositions. Courses at the Maine Photographic Workshop (now Maine Media Workshop) taught me to consider the practical need to create images that connect to the viewer. But ultimately my most valuable teacher has been to study the works of other photographers and artists that I admire and self examination of my own work.

Finding a theme for my photographs forces me to focus my efforts. Having written three books on Acadia National Park ( The Park Loop Road, Beyond the Park Loop Road and Acadia’s Carriage Roads) and produced calendars and photo essay book I find combining narrative and images a particularly rewarding challenge.

The ultimate combination is the production of audio-visual programs where photographs, narrative and music are combined to tell a story and create an emotion. Each summer I present audiovisual program at the campgrounds at Acadia National Park and at other local venues. I also lead a photography workshop for Acadia National Park from July to October.

Future projects are constantly swirling in my head. The process never ends and the excitement only grows.
