Hello everybody! My name is Don Lappin and I am a Professional Guitarist, Assistant Professor at Berklee College of Music, and Professional Photographer/Videographer.
Music: I have been a guitarist for over 43 years and I've been playing professionally for 32 years and continue to do so. I am also an Assistant Professor on the Guitar Department at Berklee College of Music. I have been teaching there since 1997. You can find out more about my music career/teaching/bio by visiting www.donlappinmusic.com.
Photography: I got my start in photography about 17 years ago when I began filming and producing Instructional DVDs for guitar. I did a couple of Book/DVD projects for Mel Bay Publications as well as 100s of hours of guitar videos (over a period of 8 years) for an on-line guitar site. I gained valuable knowledge and experience with lighting, composition, post editing, etc… It was a simple step to include stills photography a few years later. I am completely self taught but have many years of hands-on, practical experience. I love shooting Real Estate, Architecture, Landscapes, Seascapes, Portraits, Macro, and Nature/Wildlife. I love both music and photography equally. Both offer different creative outlets and I am grateful that I am able to participate in each one.
I am currently pursuing a career in Real Estate Photography and Video Tours full time. I offer full photo shoots, video tours; including aerial footage using drones (I am fully certified by the FAA to fly drones commercially). I absolutely love what I do. I am very well equipped and fully insured. My goal is to continue growing my passion for photography into a thriving business that offers a top tier product and service at a fair and competitive price.
Feel free to contact me anytime through my contacts page or call me directly at 207-216-3737. I would be happy to discuss your shoot with you. Also, be sure to check out the photos and videos in my galleries. My growing portfolio is a great indicator as to what I have to offer. Thanks!
