Sandy Flint has been creating images of the world around us for over sixty years; beginning as a child with a Kodak Brownie camera and a Sears darkroom kit. In the 1960s while scuba diving he had a desire to share the beauty of the deep with his friends and family. With no automatic underwater camera equipment, success required a return to the basics of photography. The lessons learned in creating those early underwater images formed the foundation for his exceptional technical ability demonstrated throughout his work today. Sandy believes in having control of the photographic process from the time the shutter is released to the final print. He does all his own processing and printing and uses only the finest 200-year archival paper and inks.

Through his underwater photography Sandy developed his love of and respect for the wildlife of the world. His passion for wildlife leads to the painstaking hours it requires to capture the unique images reflected in his work. Each summer he spends several days on Eastern Egg Rock, off the coast of Maine, photographing Atlantic Puffins for the National Audubon Society's Project Puffin. Over the years, Sandy has developed an impressive collection of these whimsical birds. In 2012 he spent several weeks in remote British Columbia photographing Canadian wildlife, in particular Grizzly bears, resulting in the many spectacular images of those beautiful creatures.

Sandy has been the recipient of many awards and his images have been published in several magazines including Popular Photography, Audubon, Audubon Online and most recently American Lifestyle, and birdwatcher magazines. In the spring of 2011 he was appointed archival photographer for the Philadelphia Festival of the Arts where, along with other productions, he photographed the Pennsylvania Ballet and the Philadelphia Orchestra performing Stravinsky's Pulcinella.

Currently Sandy's images can be viewed at Saltwater Artist's Gallery in New Harbor, Maine; Gifts at 136, Damariscotta, Maine; The Ironbound Gallery, Camden, Maine; Northport Landing Gallery and The Boothbay Region Art Foundation. He has recently shown works at the Lamarche Gallery, Bowdoin College and the Puffin Shop in Rockland, Maine. Sandy is a member of PPA and NANPA.
