HI there from Don’s assistant, Annie B.

In good news Don’s calendar is searching well on both Google and Amazon, meaning the world is finding him. If you go to Amazon now and type in, “photography calendars” or “2011 calendars” he’s in the top results. You could also click here to see his listings on Amazon. Also, if you have an opinion about his photography, he’d be so grateful if you’d write a review on Amazon. Every review counts, and your words could mean another sale and another happy person with a bit of New England on their wall.

Don has returned from traveling in Newfoundland, taking more fantastic photographs of seascapes, boats, flowers and fishing villages. He says that he and Lois will be back in time for the clam festival in Yarmouth. I’m sure he has lots of stories from this trip- I know I’ve been enjoying the picture texts of otherworldly lighthouses on craggy coasts and behemoth, floating icebergs. (I also know he’ll be glad to return to the realm of plentiful wifi.)

Thought it’d be nice to gather Don’s many interests and endeavors on Squidoo in one page, especially about the 2011 Donald Verger Poster Calendar, about which I’m very excited. There’s a guest book at the bottom, tell us what you think. The Poster Calendar is available on Amazon, and it’s a beautiful collection of some of his most famous images such as “Dawn of Peace” and others. I’m sure collectors of Ansel Adams and Linnea Calendars, lovers of fine art photography and nature photography will find these to be equally as stunning. Did I mention they’re framable? Bet you never thought of a calendar as an heirloom, but this one is.

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse- Acadia National Park

Donald Verger was on his way to Manchester when he heard that up in Acadia, Maine there would be a strong autumn storm with winds whipping up to 50mph. He immediately turned around and made his way to Acadia where the bad weather would provide the opportunity for some beautiful pictures. Now, he’s added this image of Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse into the series of fine art posters. This image was taken in the morning, though it was to be the middle of the storm, a calm morning can be seen as the clouds move in.

Dawn of Peace

This is one of Verger’s signature images, taken at sunrise when it was -30 degrees. The fog is surreal and peaceful as it lifts off the glassy lake. The subtle array of colors in this image make for a stunning scene.

Storm at Nubble Lighthouse

This image was taken during the Patriot’s Day Storm, April ’07. Verger made it to the lighthouse that day, taking thousands of pictures of the raging waves and churning muddy ocean. “This was something extraordinary I don’t expect to see again in my lifetime,” Verger explained while describing the featured image. An entire post about this image is available here.

Another image of a colorful rainbow, but of Portland Head Light instead. The dramatic light of sunset make the bold red roof even more rich and vibrant, and the lighthouse looks stunning in the glow.

Nubble Lighthouse- A Bright Beacon

Verger once again captures a serene moment, the clouds appear painted in the light of sunset, and Nubble Lighthouse glows vibrant orange. The intensity and surreal beauty of this image is sure to make the photograph visually rewarding in such a large format, and a favorite of this series.

Lightning Strike- Portland Head Light

This is a great sweeping view of the shore, a fantastic shot of the blue sea. The clouds seem to be racing through, and a bolt of lightning can be scene striking down to earth behind the famous lighthouse. Cool blues and moody lighting look great in this image.

Donald Verger is proud to announce the first in a series of fine art posters, selected from his most loved and collected images.

"Storm at Nubble Lighthouse", the first in a series of fine art posters by photographer Donald Verger

 

The nor’easter that bombarded the coast that day was a storm with unmatched strength, New England hadn’t seen anything like it for years. Peak winds in Portland, ME were measured at 59mph, with some of the highest waves measured just above 30′. The damage sustained by the Nubble Lighthouse in the storm was estimated at $1 million.

“The extent of coastal damage was being compared to destructive nor’easters in 1987 and 1991. Nor’easters blow directly at the Maine coast, scouring the shore and pounding seawalls and bluffs with great force. This week’s nor’easter packed especially strong winds and coincided with tides that were already elevated by 2 feet or more.”

 Portland Press Herald

Verger made it to the lighthouse that day, taking thousands of pictures of the raging waves and churning muddy ocean. “This was something extrordinary I don’t expect to see again in my lifetime,” Verger explained while describing the featured image.

The posters are now available to purchase, the first 100 sold will be signed by Donald Verger. Wholesale prices are available for purchases of 10 or more posters. Look for more fine art posters by Donald Verger available soon!

At the peak of Munjoy Hill is the cozy Hilltop Cafe which housed Donald Verger‘s most recent show “Faces of Innocence”. This show featured a collection of work which focuses on a new subject, instead of the familiar lighthouses and nature scenes, Verger presents his audience with images of people. His style still holds onto the beautiful use of color, luminous light, as well as patience and the eye to catch that perfect moment. The photography embodies a new personality, people are caught in moments going about their daily lives, and presented for us to examine. Character shines through this collection and Verger’s photography is brought to a much more personal level as you see eye to eye with smiling strangers you’ve never met, but somehow feel that you’ve gotten to know then though the art alone.

Donald Verger has been working on his Innocence Project Benefit shows in order to aid and support The Innocence Project, a nonprofit organization based in New York, dedicated to freeing individuals accused and imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. This organization is also helping to fix problems in the criminal justice system which allow such errors to occur. Verger was a victim of misidentification and now uses his story as inspiration and his photography as a medium to help others.

Thank you for the support of all those who have come to shows and donated to the Innocence Project.
