BRUNSWICK — Brunswick photographer Craig Snapp will present a slide talk for the First Light Camera Club from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Nov. 29, about some of his favorite subjects. The talk — called Capturing Images Up, Wide and Far: My Eclectic Photography Adventures with Stars, Panoramas and Custom Google Maps — will be held at the Brunswick Naval Museum.

During the first part of his presentation, Snapp will share his experiences photographing the Milky Way and capturing the August 2017 total solar eclipse in Wyoming. In “looking wide,” he will offer an overview of his skills for taking, printing and selling landscape panoramas. He’ll finish with a demonstration of how to integrate photos into custom Google Maps and capture 3D photo spheres compatible with Google Street View.  

Snapp retired in 2000 after 30 years as a research and design manager in California. Since then, he’s been an active volunteer for several land conservation nonprofits, providing digital mapping and photography support along with board membership and public-access preserve stewardship. He came to Maine with his wife in 2003. 

Snapp said moving to Maine allowed him to focus his photographic hobby on his adopted state’s striking landscapes with its wonderful natural variations of sky, weather, seasons and tides. In addition to his photography hobby, Snapp has taught short courses, given presentations and tutored on the topic of Google Earth and Google Maps at the Midcoast Senior College, People Plus and the Curtis Memorial Library.
