The annual Acadia Night Sky Festival takes place this coming week with a whole range of events, including a lecture on Wednesday night (Sept. 20th) by Nate Levesque and myself, each on our respective night sky photography. The lecture is free to the public and from 7-8 pm (and created in partnership with Maine Media Workshops and College). And while you are up there, you can check out many of other great events planned (and hopefully the weather will be clear for the night sky ones).

I’m extremely excited to announce that I’ll be making a presentation of my work at the Rockport Opera House this coming Monday, August 22nd, at 7:30 pm as part of the Maine Media Workshops Evening Lectures Series. I’ll be joining the legendary Jay Maisel as we both give presentations about our work.

I’ve attended many of these lectures over the years but this is the first one that I’m giving myself, and I’m honored to share the night with Jay. MMW puts on these presentations with instructors that are teaching that week and they are open to the public. I won’t make any rash promises about my own talk, but Jay Maisel’s presentation is always highly entertaining. I hope you can join us there!

I'll be presenting at the upcoming Pecha Kucha event hosted by the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA at noon on Sunday, October 5th. I'll be joined by 5 other photographers for the event.

Tickets are available until September 29th here. There is also brunch provided before the presentations. These events are always a lot of fun and great way to get exposed to new work. Hope to see you there!
