Aboard the Irish Lass

Photo Book


Aboard the Irish Lass: Lobster Fishing in the Maritimes (ISBN: 978-0-9732308-4-0)

This softcover book, measuring 8 inches by 6 inches and totalling 34 pages in length, includes a selection of images from the first two years of my Aboard the Irish Lass personal photographic project.


  • Location: Maritime Coastal Waters
  • Date: Ongoing
  • Type: Documentary
  • Purpose: Personal Project


The photographs used in the book were taken over six separate days in 2010 and 2011, and involved fishing in both the Bay of Fundy and the Northumberland Strait.

I hope Aboard the Irish Lass: Lobster Fishing in the Maritimes will showcase some of my photography. I also hope it will serve to document one of Atlantic Canada's traditional livelihoods through my eyes, my camera and, most of all, the work of my friends, Terry Sandell and Randy Sandell.

Project Information & Photos

The slideshow at the top of this page displays some, but not all, of the actual pages from the book.

Although the book is done, the project continues. More detailed information can be found on the Aboard the Irish Lass Project Page elsewhere on this site. The project page includes a small slideshow of images taken over the past few years.

A more complete set of photographs can be found among my Zenfolio galleries at: http://ambientlight.zenfolio.com/irishlass

Certain photographs from this project may be available for purchase as either Fine Art Prints or General Interest Photographic Prints.

One of the images from this essay, Five Fathom #1, was chosen for the 2010 Juried Exhibition at the Moncton Gallery.
