Mark here, breaking radio silence for the first time in nearly 5 months! 

I'm here to announce some very exciting news, the blog (aka LensEnvy) has a new home! In fact, it really has two new homes. Allow me to explain. Over the past few months I have started using my iPhone more and more as my camera of choice when experimenting with daily photographic pursuits. The 8MP beast has proven to be one hell of a camera! This being the case, I have been looking for a way to incorporate my iPhone / Instagram images directly into my blog. However, I didn't want to overwhelm the blog with iPhone shots, as I still enjoy posting images and details from my commercial photography exploits. 

The solution? Two blogs! One blog dedicated to my commercial photography and the other strictly iPhonography. The best part is, they both live in the same place. You can find the direct link to this new set of blogs below. 

With this new dual blogging process in place, I can assure you (my loyal visitors) that images will now uploaded on a much more regular basis. So...what are you waiting for? Get over to the new site and check it out! 

Cick here to visit the new blog!



I'm always a big fan of tuna. David's take on this classic dish was nothing but extrodinary. It's not hard to see why this dish is one of the best selling on the menu. 

Photographically speaking, how can you beat the texture and color here? What a fantastic dish to shoot!



When you live in Maine, you eat a lot of lobster. It just happens. However, I can assure you that the lobster preppared by Chef David Turin was some of the finest shellfish I've ever had. 

David is a man obsessed with details, even down to sourcing speciality butter for this dish. The presentation, as you can see, is amazing. I'm a firm believer that a meal should look as good as it tastes. I am a photographer after all.



A few weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of working with David Turin of David's Restaurant. Located smack dab in the middle of Monument Square in downtown Portland, David's is an institution. 

One of the most creative chef's I've seen in the kitchen, David was kind enough to plate dishes for us for several hours. I just couldn't stop shooting his food. When I got a chance to finally taste it...well that is an entirely different story.
