 About Photographer Andrew Sims

 For more than 20 years, Andrew Sims has been covering
world-class sailing events in the united States and
shooting cruising along the coast of Maine. His work
frequently appears on the covers and inside pages of
American yachting magazines. Perhaps the warmest
appreciation of Sims’ photography comes from the
sailors themselves. He has sold prints to hundreds, if
not thousands of both owners and crew members who
enjoy some of the best photos of their yachts competing
in action. Andrew’s approach to marine photography is
unique in that he often drives his own photo boat while
shooting, getting himself into the action to exactly where
he needs to be to get that one shot that says sailing is
powerful, exciting, and beautiful. Andrew is based in
Freeport, Maine.

About Photographer JH Peterson

For more than three decades JH Peterson has covered
most of the major sailing events in America, along
with literally hundreds of smaller ones. Whether on
an ocean or lake, great or small, if it involves sailboats
racing, he has probably been there. His work shows a
life-long fascination with the interplay of water, wind
and light.
As a widely-published photographer, his work has
been featured in every u.S. sailing magazine, as well
as dozens of international publications. His images
have appeared on more than 300 magazine covers,
and his prints are widely collected by both individuals
and corporations.
Based in the Midwest, Peterson travels widely to seek
out the next great sailing shot. Yet, surrounded where
he lives by lakes, it’s not surprising that one of his
favorite locations is only minutes from his home.
