Outdoor Film Series

  As Mainers, we don’t always realize how easy we have it. Life in the Pine Tree State is very good indeed. In 2015, I started Dirigo Media to highlight my film and photo work and as a platform to provide services to the local community. Yet, I found myself putting only a selective amount of photo…
