My Bio In December of 2007 I visited the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum in Portland. I was curious because up until this point, I have only seen standard gauge. Narrow gauge was new for me. Two foot railraods became my passion. I began shooting the restoration of Bridgeton and Saco River Railroad Steam Locomotive #7. I then branched out into trackwork photos, special events, and guest engineer photos. This book is a collection of everything.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
My next book will be "Restoring Bridgeton and Saco River Railroad Steam Locomotive #7, Part 1". I began photographing this restoration project as part of an event photo assignment. However it morphed into a larger project. Some of the shots include interior of the locomotive's cab and interior of the firebox. I want to capture various angles of the locomotive and the dedicated volunteers who restore them.
