06/21/18 Puffins, Puffins, Puffins

Posted: August 8, 2018 in Uncategorized

After two cancellations due to bad weather, I was finally able to make it out to Machias Seal Island off the coast of Maine. This year, I joined my friend, Harry Collins, for his puffin workshop. It’s a two hour car ride from Bar Harbor and an hour boat ride out to the island. The weather was great and the seas were calm. Machias is protected and only about 15 people are allowed on the island at once. Everyone is escorted to the blinds and you have about an hour to photograph the puffins. It’s always very special to see these incredible birds up close. Check out all of Harry’s workshops at this link. #savetheirhabitat
