This assignment for the Boy’s Scouts of America, was a lot of fun. We spent a few days hiking the Maine Huts Trails, and canoeing across lakes. The huts were luxurious compared to the leaky tents I used to camp out in as a kid!
I’m happy to be part of the 2010 Artists for Save the Bay exhibition, in Providence RI on Thursday, November 18th.
Save the Bay is my all time favorite organization, since I can remember the days when Narragansett Bay was polluted beyond belief, but is now clean enough to swim in and survive. So, come on by 100 Save the Bay Drive in Providence RI and Buy Art and continue to “save the bay”.
November 18th 5:30 – 7:30 at 100 Save the Bay Drive in Providence, RI

I’m excited to be involved with a new website project that helps aspiring photographers improve their skills through personalized feedback from master photographers. It’s called Photo Synesi. (Synesi is Greek for wisdom).
Aspiring photographers go onto the site, select a professional photographer who’s work they admire, then upload a portfolio of images for review. Both written and audio feedback is given on the body of work and best individual images, so the student photographers can learn what their strengths are to keep focusing on, and what their weaknesses are to improve upon. Different levels of feedback are available, and overall it’s a great way for students of photography to have working pros see and critique their work from anywhere in the world.
I spent a few days on the Cape Cod Rail Trail last Fall, which is a beautiful bike path running most of Cape Cod, built using an out of commission train route. I rigged up panniers on my road bike to carry my camera, lenses, and lunch, the hit the trail to photograph, which was a lot of fun. The current Fall issue of Rails to Trails magazine is running the photo feature.
CRUISING WORLD magazine, the leading sailing publication, featured this image of mine in their November 2009 issue. It was shot in the Atlantic while sailing to the Caribbean from Newport, RI.
I also wrote the supporting text, which explains weather concerns while sailing at sea.
While on assignment for the German news magazine STERN, I shot photos of Martha’s Vineyard as part of a commentary about President Obama’s choice of summer vacation. The aerial photo was taken on an early morning flight over Oak Bluffs from a powered paraglider, a week before the helicopters from the White House were seen flying in.
I’ve recently combined photography with sound to create a unique audio CD that puts you on the beaches of Martha’s Vineyard as the surf rolls in.
The OCEAN SOUNDS OF MARTHA’S VINEYARD CD is now available online, at several locations on Martha’s Vineyard, and soon on iTunes: http://www.vineyardsounds.com/
This original Ocean Sounds CD created by nature and recorded in high quality stereo surround sound, is direct from the water’s edge along the beautiful beaches and shores of Martha’s Vineyard. Ideal for practicing yoga, meditation, or enhancing sleep, you’ll be transported to tranquil places like Lambert’s Cove and Lucy Vincent Beach, where the sand and surf welcomes you to leave the world behind.
Let the natural sounds of Martha’s Vineyard’s beaches relax your mind and calm your soul.
Relax, enjoy, and spend some time along the beaches and shores of Martha’s Vineyard.
80 minutes / Stereo CD

“I like to capture water in motion to create a lasting image of a unique moment.”
– Michael Eudenbach
Artful Home: Michael Eudenbach’s work often captures the exciting feel of motion in a classic and timeless way, through use of dramatic angles within the composition. In his nautical sailing series of images, Michael has taken the perspective view “on board” beautiful sailing yachts while at sea.

I spent some time photographing on the water in the Caribbean earlier this month for one of my clients: GUNBOAT. These sailboats are gaining in popularity being both fast AND luxurious as they proved on the race course during the backdrop for this shoot, the Heineken Regatta.
