Every time I get asked to take photos, it’s an honor. But I especially felt honored when I was asked by Maine Magazine to photograph some of Maine’s most influential men and women.
I photographed about 20 people in less than two weeks, traveling to places in Maine that I had never seen, meeting inspiring and visionary people. It was a lesson in my own efficiency and creativity, and a re-affirmation of my belief that Maine is full of kind, powerful, and innovative people.
