Ryan Lafean put together this 7 minute clip featuring Elijah Akerly. Elijah’s moving to SF in a couple days, we can’t wait to see more from him out there!
Spent some time in Lewiston shooting with Elijah, Josh, Ryan, John, and the rest of the crew. The city’s got a ton of spots tucked into the neighborhoods if you search for them. Lewiston’s got a solid crew and a great scene going on. Plus there’s some great architecture around to be amazed by.

A recent late summer Saturday at Higgins Beach.
These dudes putting in work on a Saturday.
Couldn’t ask for a better day to hike up to Tumbledown Pond.
We spent some time out in West Forks working on an upcoming project (more on that later). We meet up with Bud and his buddy Ed at Berry’s General Store, then drove out about 15 miles into the woods and arrived at their camp site. Spent a few minutes there, then headed out to the first spot.
Bud and Ed fished about four hours fishing the first spot for trout and salmon without much going on, so we headed back to the campsite for a quick lunch, Bud tied a couple flies, we did a quick interview, listened to some fish tales, then headed out to another spot to finish the afternoon casting flies.
Not much action at the second spot, besides a couple hits and a small trout catch and release.
We spent the whole day out on the river in beautiful locations with great people. Fish or no fish, the day was a success and well spent when you look around and take in where you are. We also got to witness a great friendship that goes back many years of these guys spending their days out here at camp fishing and just enjoying life.
This is Maine, and the way life should be.
Lunch, fish tales, and a fly tying session.
Head out to check another spot for fish.
Dean O’Keeffe up early.
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 how Brian puts in work 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.
Brett Dobrovolny, Dean O’Keefe, and Joe Radano, spot check.
