Personal Work

Director | cinematographer | editor

One of my favorite things about Maine is all of the accomplished people who gladly live here in obscurity. Robert Fresson is one of those people. The 97-year-old photographer has a basement full of Kodachrome shot on every continent for Life, Look, National Geographic, Vogue, Glamour etc… during a career that spanned seven decades. He was Irving Penn’s assistant for almost a decade and used to travel by boat with all of Penn’s gear from New York to London on the Cunard line. That’s just how you did things back then. Fresson is as excited about photography today as he was when he started and reminds me just how amazing my chosen profession is.
