A message from the pilot/photographer. Born and raised on a lake in central Maine, I have been flying since 1979 and taking pictures since 1973. Until the spring of 2006, I never put these two passions of mine together. Now that I have you get to see what I see from above. Maine Aerial Photos mission is two-fold. First, to show you how beautiful Maine and her surroundings really are through the work you'll enjoy on this website, and then in your home or office for years to come. And second, to provide valuable information to clients taking part in Maine's development, through a very important vantage point.
I received my pilot's license in Dallas in 1987. I was in the computer software business and I traded a local FBO my hours working on his databases for hours in his airplanes. I just paid for the instructor. It was a sweat deal, and I got to fly a lot of different airplanes. My first ride in a float plane was that same year I got my license. It was a Cessna 206 amphibian, and it seemed like we used most of Lake Texoma that hot Texas day to get airborne, but I was hooked anyway. Taking off and landing from water is a blast! It also offers you some incredible angles to shoot aerial photography from.
My work has taken me around the world and all over this country. I have made some really good friends, and lost some really good friends. Through it all I will always remember that my work lets you see your world from above. And its a beautiful world. Enjoy and see for yourself!

Chris and Mike Twitchell. Twitchells Airport & Seaplane Base is where I got my float rating in 1987.
My photography has been published in several national magazines. My work has been entered in several national, judged competitions. I thank everyone for the awards I have received.
I have three sons and I like to tell the story of how I tried to teach each one of them to take aerial photographs, but it was easier to teach them how to fly instead. It's a true story!
This is Reid, my oldest flying over Falmouth.
Another great day (and landing) on Great Moose Lake!
