The Maine I Love — Wayne Hamilton

Photographs by Wayne Hamilton

By The Editors

Wayne Hamilton, known by most people as the genius behind the Searsport-based Hamilton Marine ship chandlery, is also a talented photographer. He takes a camera with him when on the water, whether at work transporting pilots to and from tankers that transit Penobscot Bay or just cruising in his 36' powerboat Ciloway III. “I started taking photos in high school when I joined the photo club, and then my late wife Loraine and I ran a wedding photo business for 10 years,” he said. “I like to document history and also take artistic shots, especially with the weather, in snowstorms, rough water, or fog.”
