This year, photographer Michele Barker joins me with her superb coverage of the Six Mile Falls area. (I stationed myself around the drop above the Shopping Cart rapids.)

So now people have twice as many choices!

Head over to the race photo page of the Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race website and check it out.


2010 Canoe Race Photos Are Now Online!


The 2010 photo galleries are now up and running!

Once again, I set up at the Shopping Cart rapids this year. While I can't say I captured every single person in the race, I gave it the old college try.

Go to the Race Photos page on my website to check out the new shots!

And by the way, the print sales keep the Kenduskeag website up and running, so thank you for your support!

Prints make wonderful gifts and keepsakes.

If you missed or portaged the Shopping Cart rapids, however, you won't find yourself in these galleries. Sorry! Maybe next year.


2006 Race Photos Are Online


Gumby Crew: Right back at ya with the love.

My 2006 Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race photos are now online.

Holy cow - what a demanding photo shoot it was today! Lots of fun. Although I didn't paddle, I got just as wet as many of the people who did. So much for staying dry on the bank of the stream.

By the way, I didn't shoot at Six Mile Falls this year. This time around I chose the Shopping Cart rapids closer to Bangor.

There were 339 boats this year (258 of which finished the race) and I think I snapped just about all of them. If you do not appear in the galleries, it isn't because I didn't like you. It's because a paddle or another person (or both) got in the way of me seeing your face. Blame my wet, cold shutter finger and the overall timing of things if you must.

If you did the race today, I tip my hat to you.

And to Dirigo Rescue: The Shopping Cart crew did a heck of a job ensuring a safe and fun race for all. Just thought you might want to know. They also provided this humble photographer with helpful radio updates during the race. They didn't have to do this, but they did. And I appreciate it.
