Coastal Living Lobster Wars

We first heard about Matinicus Island, Maine in the New York Times a few years ago.  Matinicus was then the site of an ongoing struggle over lobstering in the waters there between mainland and island lobster man.  The national press started covering the struggle once gunfire started.

Late last summer, we had the opportunity to travel to (and eat a ton of lobster on) this wildly remote island 20 miles off the coast.  Any opportunity to go to Maine is always taken.  This time, we were there to photograph on Matinicus' neighbor, Wheaton Island -- the home of painters Bo Bartlett and Betsy Eby.   You could walk from Matinicus to Wheaton at low tide.  The images and story are from this month's Coastal Living and the life Bartlett and Eby have on this big rock is something to see and the influence it has on their work really powerful.

October's Elle Decor

Bill's got three stories in this month's Elle Decor including the cover image of Ralph and Ricky Lauren's Manhattan apartment.  Produced by Design Director Anita Sarsidi, the stories include the Lauren apartment, Frederic Fekkai and Shirin Von Wulffen's home and dizzyingly tall model Hana Soukopova and her husband Drew Aaron's dizzyingly high up, art filled, Mark Cunningham-designed apartment. 

You can see the Lauren apartment here, the Robert Couturier designed Fekkai-von Wulffen apartment here and the Soukopova-Aaron home here.

Let's All Be Frank

Our friend, Peter Frank's home is in the current issue of House BeautifulPeter is a talented set designer and prop stylist and his is one of our favorite houses--a house that Bill was very excited about photographing and that Andrea is very proud to represent as a location.   Peter has great style and can ski like a banshee--something that has endeared him to our kids.  Scot Schy did a beautiful layout, Rima Suqi, a great interview and we are very happy to feature it.  You can see the entire article here.

If the photographs make you want to see it all for yourself, including all the rooms that wouldn't fit into the layout, you can! The house is one of the six houses on this year's Historic Hudson Old House Tour, which takes place on October 2nd.    Tickets available at
