Sometimes assignments come along where you find yourself working really hard and simultaneously really really enjoying yourself! This is precisely how I felt when Down East Magazine sent me to the town of Belgrade to photograph some of the magic that is Maine in the summer time! The biggest challenge here was photographing a summertime lakeside town, after labor day. There was a very small window between when the leaves started to turn and there were still enough people around to have everything feel like summer. Fortunately, I had a couple of really amazing connections, and some committed friends to help out! There is no way this story would have turned out without their help!
