Good to see local photographer Mike Berman has a nice spread in the current April 2011 issue of WoodenBoat magazine starting on page 78.
After a 25 year career in commercial photography with many nautical clients, Mike moved west in 2007 and began making the stunning black and white shots in the Schooners series from which the magazine article is drawn. We are lucky to be able to see so many of these fine vessels out in the Bay, in the yard or tied to the dock that sometimes we forget what a relatively rare sight they are. Even if we are used to passing ALCYONE on the way out of Boat Haven, Mike’s photographs capture the power and the grace of these magnificent ships and help us to see them anew.
If you are in the market for some commercial nautical photography, give Mike a call at (360) 732-0693. Or you can find him out on the water, usually doing bow on PEGASUS.
