Got back into Maine this morning around 2 am from a nice Myrtle Beach vacation. Feels like I’m picking up right where I left off. It started off with a coffee meeting in Brunswick to catch up and talk about some upcoming Maine projects. We ended up at Bowdoin.
Here’s Brian Goding, maine project contributor and director of the Shoot the Pier film enjoying a Sunday afternoon on the Bowdoin campus.
Blessed with good weather this weekend for Maine. Heads from ESNC, RESESSION, & Step Dad Mag were all in attendance for Saturday’s session. If this is a taste of what to expect for the coming months, then it proves that there’s no better place to be than Maine in the Summer.

Yeah, busy weekend for Maine’s coast. Clocks got pushed forward, and I’m sure some people slept through their alarms. Some of the Black Point surf shop crew were out on a dawn patrol. Vernacular Observatory was out stacking footage for his next project.

A perfect winter day for Maine. Temps in the 40′s, sunny blue skies, and waves. Lots of people out watching what the ocean was offering up for the Maine coast. And yes, the ocean put on a good show.
Sunday the day after we got rocked from blizzard Nemo, I headed out to a few spots. Major snow accumulation and snow drifts were the standard for the day. Hiking in through 2-3ft of snow was necessary to even get on the beach. But once you made it out to the beach, the sight was stunning.
I was supposed to meet up and shoot with Kevin Strong from Dunk the Junk, once I made it to the beach, I saw his text saying he got in the water at another location. There were two people out here surfing, so I took some shots, then headed out to find Kevin. Unknown surfers.
Standing up to my waist in snow to grab the next two shots.
And sometimes you wait. Not a bad place to be waiting. Kevin Strong doesn’t mind.
We are fast approaching the “off season” for much of Maine’s coast. But that really depends on who you ask.
Spent a recent afternoon at Higgins Beach catching the last of a September day’s light. Watched some surf, and shot some surf, along with the beautiful scenery of Higgins Beach.
Hurricane Leslie was still sending us some swell. I spent the first part of the morning down at Long Sands Beach in York. After York, I headed up to Ogunquit, then finished off in Scarborough with Brett from Black Point Surf Shop and a couple of his friends. Check out part one of some surf in Maine this week.
