Mike Taylor

Taylor Photography is a freelance imaging studio based in a 19th century farmhouse in central Maine. Owned and operated by Mike Taylor and Sonia MacNeil, Taylor Photography offers small group and private 1-on-1 night photography and post-processing workshops, fine art prints, and presentations of their work.

Observing and photographing the features of the night sky is an awe-inspiring experience that so few people ever get to enjoy. The atmosphere of the night, the sights and sounds, are so very contrary from normal daytime hours that it is literally a different world - a radical world of diffused light, excessive shadows and noises that you will simply never see or hear when the sun is up. These existential awakenings will spark your inner child to marvel at the world again. There is so much to see, so much to hear, so much to enjoy during the dark hours of each day - the Moon, the stars, the Milky Way, the occasional meteor, and the spectacular Northern Lights displays.

Taylor Photography's landscape astrophotography and scenic/nature images & articles have been featured on NASA's Astronomy Picture Of The Day, Huffington Post, Outdoor Photography Magazine, The Weather Channel, NBC News, Viral Nova, Discovery.com, Mashable.com, Yahoo! News, Space.com, Earthsky.org, Spaceweather.com, Solarham.net, and multiple other science websites and social media pages. Mike is also a contributing member of the International Dark-Sky Association and he has been working in conjunction with their organization to help raise public awareness of artificial light pollution and its negative effects on human health, wildlife, safety and energy waste.
