Dee is simply the best. She has impeccable credentials and is the consummate professional as a photographer. As a faculty member at University of Maine, a credential she did not volunteer, she is skilled in teaching novices like my wife and me about how to take the best possible photographs even with an iPhone. As others have posted, she knows all the hidden spots along the coast that are ideal for photography. We highly recommend this experience. It was a great way to spend a day seeing some of the most beautiful sights in the area.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I do love sharing the most beautiful areas of Mid-Coast Maine as well as my love for photography. And with that, I thank you for choosing Coastal Maine Photo Tours for one of your day-activities while visiting the area. It truly was a joy for me having you aboard and getting to know you both. I thought of you the following days as the weather warm up just in time for your boat trips. Do get in touch if you find yourselves coming back to the area.

This was my third tour with Dee, excellent as usual. She took me to some lovely out-of-the-way harbors and coves in late afternoon, culminating with a spectacular sunset at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse. She also gave helpful guidance about my Sony mirrorless camera and various settings. A great way to spend the day.

Dee showed us a wonderful selection of places to photograph in western Maine. She is a great and patient instructor. Even my wife got some great pictures with her iPhone, and my pictures with my Nikon were stunning. When I show them to my friends, they think that the colors were enhanced when they are looking at JPEGS straight-out of the camera. I already have one enlargement sitting on the mantel of the fireplace. The colors in western Maine were better than those in Acadia. What else can I say.. I highly recommend this workshop.

All I can say is Awesome. Maine is a beautiful place and Dee has found some of the best locations in western Maine. Always enough time for the group to explore and photograph. Dee is always there to help each person get the desired effect / photo . The group was really great too.

My wife, who loves photography, asked if I would be willing to do the Pemquid Point Lighthouse Sunset Journey Photo Tour on our recent New England vacation. I agreed. So, I "revived" my wife's old Cannon PowerShot SX120 IS camera and prepared. What I discovered, with Dee's professional instruction, was not only the "technical" aspects of the camera, but more importantly, the use of these in the composition of photographs. Also, Coastal Maine is a beautiful area to photograph. Bottom Line: Toward the end of our tour, after taking photos and using what I had learn, I told my wife, "I'm having fun!"
