• Points of View Artist Craig Snapp shows "Eclectic SnappShots" at UU Church Brunswick

    An exhibit of an eclectic selection of photographs on glossy metal by local hobby photographer Craig P Snapp is scheduled for display in the Fellowship Gallery of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick Maine from Friday July 14 to Sunday August 13.  The Church is located at the corner of Middle St and Pleasant St in Brunswick.  The Friendship Gallery is open to the public Tue.-Fri from 10 am - 4 pm and on Sundays from 10 am - Noon.  Call 729-8515 for more information.   There will be a reception at the Gallery from 4 pm - 6 pm on July 14.  

    About the exhibit:  "Eclectic SnappShots" will include 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.   Some of these images may bring new perspectives to familiar sights, others may inspire, and a few may even be mildly funny with whimsical titles.

    Craig P. Snapp - Artist Profile:    Craig retired in 2000 after thirty years as an R&D manager in  Silicon Valley, began volunteering for several land conservation non-profits, and reanimated his moribund photography hobby - just as the digital imaging revolution was taking off.  He has always had a strong love of nature and was encouraged by his wife Barbara who thinks he has at least a decent sense of composition.  Moving to Maine in 2003 allowed him to focus on his adopted state’s striking landscapes with its wonderful natural variations of sky, weather, seasons and tides.   

    Initially he specialized in digitally stitched panorama photography for the promotion of land trust conservation in coastal Washington County.  With encouragement from friends he began successfully selling his wildlife and panorama images at some local craft fairs and gift shops.  After tiring of the hobby business in 2010, he expanded his work with a variety of digital enhancement techniques and different points of view.  

    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.
