I could not have thought of a better way to end the season than to head to New York City to photograph a beautiful BB18 from Artisan Boatworks–the Buzzards Bay 18 BESHERTE. To view video of her sistership, UNCAS, click here.
The Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, MA, hosts the Classic Yacht Regatta for two days of racing in August, sponsored by the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge. I was fortunate enough to catch it this year, and although the breeze was light, I was still able to capture some beautiful classics. Thank you Corinthian Yacht Club for hosting a fabulous event.
For many years, I have wanted to publish my own calendar. I’ve always felt that the freedom of creativity doesn’t end with the shutter release. It’s the editing and presentation of one’s work that truly completes the creative process.
This year, I am pleased to present my first self-published calendar for both the wooden boat enthusiast and the nautically inclined. From the past several years of shooting wooden boats around the world, I’ve hand picked 12 of my favorite images to share.
The 2014 Nautical Images calendar sells for $14.95 and is uniquely sized at 9″ square – opening to 9″ wide x 18″ tall – with a black wire-o binding. This compact size fits nicely in snug spaces and is an ideal for your boat. The calendar is printed on a sturdy card stock with a protective glossy UV coating, making the images suitable for framing. Contact us for quantity discount on FIVE or more calendars ($12.95 each) or for wholesale inquiries.

Although I’m not in Newport this weekend, if you’re heading to the Newport International Boat Show today or tomorrow, please drop by and visit our clients who are attending and debuting new additions to their trade show offerings.
Great Island Boat Yard (GIBY) will be displaying a video I made for them this past summer. I met Steve and Stephanie Rowe about 3 years ago and we started talking about a video for GIBY. At that time, I was working on a quite a few videos for my clients, but only as a shooter and content provider. Although I had edited many pieces to music, editing one to interviews was a step forward. After fine tuning the storyboards and pre-production, this summer, for the first time, I produced, shot, and edited the GIBY video myself. John Snyder of Marine Media provided his expertise for the sound and interview (thank you John!), and Steve Rowe and his customers made it breeze. The result showcases the beauty, efficiency, and family oriented nature of the Harpswell, Maine boatyard. It is viewing at GIBY’s booth in Newport this weekend, and here:
Artisan Boatworks was ready for a fresh, updated trade show booth presence, and my studio manager, Jane Kurko, designed the new display. Jane has been with me since 2008. In addition to managing the gallery and being my second shooter on assignments, she also designs my marketing collateral, print ads and photo books. Simultaneously, she has kept a handful of freelance graphic design clients during her days off. Since so many of my clients have had design needs, earlier this year she brought her talents in house to service Langley Photography clients as well. Here are two shots of Artisan’s booth in Newport (images are courtesy of Alec Brainerd, president of Artisan Boatworks).
The 2013 Castine to Camden Feeder Race was stunning with a mix of fog, sun, and amazing clouds. Click on the slideshow above to see a selection from the day, and then visit my online store to order prints. I have adjacent images of several of the boats, so if you would like to view a larger selection of your boat, send me an email and I’ll check the archives for additional shots.
Saturday morning, Jane and I were headed to the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta for another day of shooting, but encountered engine trouble and had to head back to Camden. So, apologies to those who had hoped to see photos from the ERR. There’s always next year…
