Hudson’s ‘October Skies’ to glow at Jesup



BAR HARBOR — Michael Hudson, who has been photographing autumn in Acadia National Park for 10 years, will be at the Jesup Memorial Library on Saturday, June 18, at 7 p.m. to talk about his photography career and how he came to publish his book “Under October Skies: Autumn in Acadia.” He also will show images from the book and talk about his approach to photography in Acadia.

“In my photography, I’m always trying to look beyond the postcard views,” Hudson said. “I’m not trying to just photograph a record of a location; I’m always striving to create an artistic image that reveals something of the character and atmosphere of the place – its essence or spirit.”

Hudson said his goal for the book was to “create one of the most beautiful books of photographs from Acadia, all taken during the most photogenic and colorful time of the year, autumn.”

Hudson has been a commercial and fine art photographer for over 25 years. In 2014, he published his first ebook, “The Photographer’s Guide to Acadia,” to help photographers find some of the best places to photograph in the park. Posters of his photography are sold in the Hulls Cove Visitor Center, and his fine art and travel photos have appeared in magazines such as “National Geographic Traveler,” “Washingtonian” and “Bangor Metro,” among others.

Books will be on sale at the Jesup that night, with a percentage of sales donated to the library. Sherman’s and Machias Savings Bank are co-sponsors of this event.
