I am a longtime local, fine-art photographer and professor at the University of Maine. I bring a unique combination of local knowledge and teaching experience to the itinerary of every tour. While covering camera techniques, I strive to show you ways to expand your vision and increase your awareness of your surroundings. I will help you understand the camera controls that can support your vision, and overall, to help you to see the world through your camera with more creative ability. You can sample my exhibition work by going to Dee’s Gallery.
