Tony Sweet

Boothbay Harbor — The dates have been set, the “Maine Photography Show” judge has been chosen and it is time for Maine photographers to their best photographs and get ready to submit them for the 2013 show.

Entries will be taken Saturday, Dec. 1 through Feb. 1. For entry form, rules and details, visit mainephotographyshow.com. There are four categories — Color, Black & White, Theme (Trees) and Student, which includes images in any of the first three categories taken by a person 18 or younger. All photographers who live in Maine or have a summer home here are invited to enter. The cost to enter is $10 per image with a maximum of three images, which can be in different categories.

The 2013 show judge is the nationally known nature photographer Tony Sweet. After 20 years as a professional jazz artist, Sweet changed careers and directed his creativity towards nature photography. The improvisational, spontaneous and abstract nature of jazz also are integral elements of nature photography, and Sweet became a full time professional after only five years of study and building stock.

Sweet’s work is published on greeting cards, calendars, post cards, posters, annual reports, catalogs and electronic mediums. He is represented by Pictor, Woodfall Wild Images, Digital Vision and Orion stock agencies. In 1994, he started his Art of Nature Photography workshop company, which conducts workshops in the eastern United States. His work is featured in Rangefinder magazine and Shutterbug magazine on an ongoing basis and as contributor to Nikonnet.com.

The “Maine Photography Show” will be open to the public April 13 through May 3 at the Boothbay Region Art Foundation, 1 Townsend Ave. Admission to the show is free.
