Abstract

"Making It In Maine," piece on commercial photography in Portland, a niche some say was created by Peter Macomber, who opened his studio in 1974. He now shoots for L.L. Bean catalogs. The number of commercial photographers in Portland has increased in the past decade, some spawned by Macomber, but there is a spirit of cooperation as Portland's reputation grows. With details on Paul Howell, Mark Rockwood, Stretch Tuemmler, Russell French, and Barry Lewis. Dennis Welsh is an outdoor photographer, and "National Geographic" contributors in the Portland area include Bill Curtsinger, David McLain, Amy Towensing, and Jose Azel. Jay York works with artists. Scott Peterman and Tanja Hollander started the Bakery Photographic Collective. Portland has only one professional color-processing lab, Portland Color, owned by Andy Graham.
