Maine coast. For a couple of weeks in the year nature puts a spectacle like no other place in the US showing, literarily, its “true-colors”. This trip is not only an exploration of the most glorious season of the year, but of Maine’s marine history and heritage. Birthplace of American seamanship the coast is adorned with village after village full of history and countless photo opportunities. Lighthouses pierce into the thick fog guiding seafarers and image-makers back to port. Our journey ends in Acadia National Park, premier location for fall photography.

ITINERARY

Day 1

Arrival into Portland, Maine. At night we meet for dinner and orientation

Day 2

At dawn we head out to photograph Maine’s oldest and most photogenic lighthouse, Portland Headlight that is situated on the spectacular shores of Fort Williams Park. Sunrise here is glorious. Time for breakfast and a walking shoot of the historical Portland Old Port. After lunch we set of to photograph Cape Elizabeth where basaltic columns reach into the ocean. We finish the day at the Portland Headlight where we bid goodbye to our first day of shooting.

Day 3

After breakfast we drive route 24 through the “finger islands” to Orrs and Baily Islands. This route is full of small coves harboring the lobster fleet. After lunch in Brunswick we shoot the Pemaquid Lighthouse, which is perched in a rocky outcrop where waves crash on the rugged coastline. Time to head to Camden where we spend the night.

Day 4

After breakfast we travel north along the coast to Rockport and Camden, to of the most iconic seaside towns in Maine. Scores of sailboats and schooners adorn these bays; and the food, to die for. We spend most of the day shooting these to gems before arriving the Bar Harbor where our Acadia National Park adventure begins. We shoot sunset at the Bass Harbor Lighthouse, another iconic spot of this state. We spend the night at the wonderful village of Bar Harbor.

Day 5

Up to Cadillac Mountain for sunrise. This is the first point in the United States to be touched by the rising sun. From here you see of all Acadia National Park. The entire mountain is covered in colors as the light softly hits the moving leaves. During the day we photograph in Duck Brook Bridge, Sieur de Monts, Jordan Pond and other iconic spots of the park.

Day 6

Time for dramatic moving images and no better place to achieve that than Thunder Hole in the park’s coast. Crashing waves and sunrise are the perfect canvas for those veil-laden images On to Bubble Pond and its wonderful reflections and picturesque creek. After a late breakfast we photograph the Somerville Bridge as we continue our image search through Loop Road.

Day 7

Early Departure for Portland’s Airport
