Painter and photographer Michael Weymouth was born and raised in Maine. He left in 1960 to attend art school in Boston and presently presides over a 30-person branding design firm with offices in Boston and San Francisco. He lives in Hingham, Massachusetts, with his wife Peggy. Michael retains firm roots around Penobscot Bay, the subject of his collaboration of photographs and paintings in Maine: A Shared View with poems and interviews by Elizabeth Garber; and also in the wilderness near Moosehead Lake where he is working on a book of photography and poetry. His book, How Photography Can Make You a Better Painter, encourages artists to use their digital cameras to create more effective resource photos for their paintings.

Come meet Elizabeth, Michael and dozens of additional Maine writers and artists at this year's Books in Boothbay festival!
