Do you have any favorite images or shoots so far?
My favorite shoots are the ones where, when we’re packing up for the day, I hear one of our models say “Wow. That just made me feel so good about myself.” Then I know we’ve done something really, truly awesome. Some of my favorite shots include Jake Tyler Michaud at Fort Williams, Sonny Oram and Katie Diamond at Fitzpatrick Stadium, and Adriana Dominique at the East End railroad bridge. The diversity of people we shoot gives us such a wide variety of engaging content — it’s hard to choose favorites!
The blog isn’t just about highlighting queer fashion and style, but also about showcasing real Mainers. What three words would you use to describe the Maine aesthetic?
Right, we don’t just shoot queers, although Portland has an abundance of stellar queer style. I’d say the common theme for Maine aesthetic, from the “Maine Ladies” to the hipsters who moved here from Seattle, is: functional, durable, and classic.
