Sue Anne Hodges has been a professional photographer for 25 years. She also teaches and is currently the Director of Digital Imaging at New England School of Photography in Boston Massachusetts.

During the past 25 years Sue Anne has been an advertising photographer specializing in creative lighting for many New England clients such as, Lechmere, Bradlees, and Staples. Her eye for color and light has also taken her outside the studio where she has been inspired by the beauty and the light of Mount Desert Island Maine where she is a part time resident.

This special place has led her to photograph both its grandeur and it’s nuances. What started as a personal project has grown to become an important part of her work. Her images have been featured in Down East Magazine, DeLorme publications, The Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce Guide Books, and more. In the series “Island Light” she explores the more intimate spaces of the island. From a morning walk on Main Street to an afternoon at the waters edge, the images invite the viewer to experience the color and light that has drawn artists to Mount Desert Island for many years.

Two images from the Island Light series were included in the Bangor Symphony’s 2003 “Pictures at an Exhibition” and many are in private collections.

Sue Anne is a resident of Seal Harbor Maine and West Newbury MA. She is represented by Redfield’s Gallery in Northeast Harbor, Maine.

    Sue Anne, since I am in snowy NYC this morning but thinking about what it must look like in Acadia, I decided to search for some photos of the Somesville Bridge to use as my computer’s background. I came across you and your beautiful images! I’m also a part-time MDI resident. Thank you for capturing the island so exquisitely so we can all enjoy it when we are not there!

    Lynn, sorry I didn’t respond sooner. I am catching up on blogging. Thanks for the comments. I too like to see MDI when I am not there. I keep the web cams bookmarked! I think you might like to see my most recent post about the Brown Mountain Gate Lodge.

    Hello there,I really appreciate your photos. I want to tell you I lived with my family in late 60’s until 1977 at the Brown Mountain Gate House. My father was ,Roy Stamey, of course a ranger at Acadia. I couldn’t have grown up in a better house or location. I cried the whole time looking at your photos. Seeing the bedroom I slept in with my sister for years was glorious. What made me happy is all the windows are still original and mostly everything else.I now live in Tennessee and now realize I was spoiled rotten living in such a great place. I haven’t been back in over 25 years, thats sad. I would love to have the photos you took on a disk or something. Any thing at all would be grand.My name is now Cheryl Purdom. Very sentimental about anything to do with Mount Desert Island. Every time I look at these photos I will cry.Quite different so many years later without all of our stuff in the home. Thank you so much for the memories.
