Maine Photo Works
On a snowy day in Portland, Maine, the Casco Bay Marina transforms into a mesmerizing landscape of contrasting textures and colors. The marina, normally bustling with boats and people, appears almost skeletal, its empty docks resembling the bony scales of a fish carcass.
The snow creates a pristine blanket of white that blankets the ground, adding a layer of softness to the scene. Against this stark background, the marina's structures and boats stand out in sharp relief, their forms creating a striking contrast with the blue green bay.
Despite the absence of people and boats, there is a sense of tranquility and serenity in the air, as if the marina has been enveloped in a peaceful slumber. The quiet of the snowfall is only broken by the occasional sound of the wind, the soft crunching of snow underfoot, and the gentle lapping of the water against the dock.
It is a scene that is both hauntingly beautiful and deeply serene, a moment frozen in time that captures the essence of the Casco Bay Marina in all its stark and captivating glory.
March - Snow on the rails
The Narrow gauge railroad may lie dormant during this time in the winter, but its old-fashioned charm remains as bright as ever against the glistening white snow of Casco Bay. The railroad offers carefree rides around the eastern promenade. The gleaming locomotive, now frozen in the snow, is a touristy reminder of simpler days, of the joy of discovery and adventure.
Bay Square at Yarmouth, Maine
We enjoy photographing properties and living spaces for residents of all ages. On this particular day we photographed the entirety of the Bay Square senior living campus located in Yarmouth, Maine. The campus was safe and charming and accommodated wonderful spaces for residents of all active levels. Our photography was used for their social media purposes and printed material to help showcase the great amenities available throughout the buildings.
In March of 2022, we photographed Sur Lie, a local restaurant located in the heart of Portland Maine. This was a photographic project in partnership with Portland Downtown, a non-profit organization that works to enhance and promote the vitality of downtown Portland, Maine.
The focus for the photography session would be to capture the energy and spirit of the restaurant's team. As soon as we arrived at Sur Lie, we were struck by the warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff was incredibly welcoming and confident, which created a really good atmosphere during happy hour. The staff was buzzing around, preparing drinks and appetizers, and chatting with patrons. I focused on capturing the interactions between the staff and customers, as well as the details of the restaurant's interior design.
It was a fantastic night photographing for Portland Downtown and Sur Lie. The team at the restaurant were incredibly hospitable and we really enjoyed photographing their interactions. We hope that our photographic work will help to showcase the atmosphere at Sur Lie, and encourage everyone to visit this wonderful restaurant in Portland, Maine.
