Shoot in Brooklin and Blue Hill

A few days ago I went with Alison up to Center Harbor in Brooklin, Maine to shoot some boats designed by Stephens, Waring, and White, the fabled and beyond talented boat designers. They designed the majority of the boats that I have photographed, and it's not hard to see why; their lines are clear and beautifully proportioned, and they fuse design and function seamlessly. I drove the workboat while Alison took video footage, and then Paul Waring drove for both of us so that I could take stills. I climbed up on the ten foot ladder above the console which enabled me to get the great shots looking down at Hoi An and Tendress, the two boats we shot. We were out from 1:3o to 8:15 shooting, and didn't get back to Center Harbor until around 9. Some weather had come in by then, so our visibility on the way back was limited by nightfall and the thick fog eveloping us. But we made it! Most of the stills I took are on Alison's gear still, but here are a few I managed to snap with my own camera.

Tendress heads home.

What our trip home looked like!
