Taylor Photography

June 23rd, 2-3 PM
Albert Church Brown Memorial Library

Mike Taylor / Taylor Photography

Taylor Photography is a freelance imaging studio based in a 19th century farmhouse in central Maine, owned and operated by Mike and Sonia Taylor. Mike has been a landscape and studio photographer for over 20 combined years.

Observing and photographing the features of the night sky is an awe-inspiring experience that so few people ever get to enjoy. The atmosphere of the night, the sights and sounds, are so very contrary from normal daytime hours that it is literally a different world - a radical world of diffused light, excessive shadows and noises that you will simply never see or hear when the sun is up.

These existential awakenings will spark your inner child to marvel at the world again. There is so much to see, so much to hear, so much to enjoy during the dark hours of each day - the Moon, the stars, the Milky Way, the occasional meteor, and the spectacular Northern Lights displays.

Free, open to the public, refreshments will be served.
