Craig P Snapp's picture

Contact Craig at the above email address if you are interested in purchasing any of his photos.

Craig retired in 2000 after thirty years as an R&D manager in Silicon Valley, CA.  Since then he’s been an active volunteer for several land conservation non-profits, providing digital mapping and photography support along with public-access preserve stewardship.  He migrated to Maine with his wife Barbara in 2003 and initially specialized in digitally stitched panoramas for the promotion of Downeast Coastal Conservancy projects in Washington County.  

He has always had a strong love of nature and moving to Maine allowed him to focus his amateur photography hobby on his adopted state’s striking landscapes with its wonderful natural variations of sky, weather, seasons and tides.   He’s been encouraged by Barbara and others who seem to think he has a pretty good “eye” and sense of composition.  Some of his images have received recognition at juried shows such as the Topsham Library’s “Joy of the Lens” and the Boothbay Regional Art Foundation’s “Maine Photography Show”.  

His 2017 “Eclectic SnappShots” exhibit at the UU Church Brunswick included an old to new selection of landscape panoramas, spherical keyhole panoramas and images of sunrise, sunset, moonset, Milky Way, infrared, black & white, natural world, wildlife, still life and people.  A selection of his images is shown on his Curtis Memorial Library Creative Spaces webpage: http://curtiscreativespaces.com/craig-p-snapp/.  He hopes that some will bring new perspectives for familiar sights, and that a few might bring inspiration or at least a healthy smile.  

Craig thanks and acknowledges Points of View Artists (povartistsmaine.com) and the First Light Camera Club (firstlightcc.com) for inspiring him to keep exploring for new and fun images to capture and create. 

All of Craig’s photos are for sale at a price dependent on size and media.

In addition to his photography hobby, Craig has also taught short courses, given presentations and tutored on Google Earth-Maps at the Midcoast Senior College, People Plus and recently at the Curtis Memorial Library.   He encourages folks to use these free, powerful and fun tools to explore their world and create their own custom maps with imbedded photos.   He is available at Curtis Library on request for tutoring on custom mapping and/or introductory photo editing.

He strives to have his photography and cartography reflect his motto of 
"Work Hard, Celebrate Life, Nurture the Earth & Explore the Universe!".
