Picturing Rockland from Land, Sea, and Sky with Photographer Jim Dugan
Jim is a commercial and fine-art photographer with an eclectic resume and wide range of subject matter. He teaches photography every year aboard the schooner Mary Day and has served as crew for several trips, mostly as deckhand but also assistant cook.
“I’ve scraped her hull and helped rig in the spring, climbed the rigging underway, cooked scones in the woodstove at 5 AM, and helped downrig in the fall,” he said.
That windjammer time has led to some of his best pictures, many of which he will be showing during the presentation. His “Timeless Maritime” pictures are in many collections and decorate the rooms in a 95-room hotel in Portland.
Jim is an FAA-licensed drone pilot and has found this opens up a whole new realm of photographic opportunities. He plans to show some drone video as well as stills.
After growing up near Philadelphia, Jim came to Maine in 1989 to study at the Maine Photographic Workshops (now Maine Media). Aside from his photography business, he has been a graphic designer and web designer. For about 12 years, he was a Licensed Maine Guide, leading sea-kayak trips and tours.

He’s also a frequent contributor to the Rockland Maine Facebook group.
Jim’s presentation at the library will primarily focus on pictures and videos made in (or close to) Rockland. “I walk the Breakwater as often as I can and I have pictures of it in all weather and moods, even when it’s underwater or covered in snow and ice. I see something new every time I walk it,” he said.
