Alex MacLean is a veteran aerial photographer who has been photographing the rural landscape since 1975. He has a Master’s degree in architecture and flying was his way of performing site analysis. He was captivated by what he saw while up in the sky “in part because of its natural response to environmental conditions, climates, soils and topography." According to MacLean: “There’s nothing like flying in a small aircraft with the window open and watching the dramatic and quickly changing landscape evolve. You can go from a dense urban area to wilderness in a matter of moments". MacLean is lives and works in Lincoln, Massachusetts.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
