This is a place where every photo tells a story. We can help you tell yours.


Studio 1 Photography was founded by Dan Rodrigue in 1982. Dan is a Master Photographer and a member of the Maine Professional Photographers Association. His primary studio was in Dresden, Maine until 1995 when he opened his second photography studio in a ballroom on Congress street in Portland, Maine. Now, Dan specializes in location photography and is a guru in choosing unique and stunning locations.

Throughout his career, Dan has had the pleasure of creating beautiful portraits of life. He has captured engagements and then their weddings. He has photographed newborns and families as they grow. He has documented high school seniors in the moments just before they graduate and leave home. Our photos are tactile memories and they document our lives; we treasure photos as one of our most valued possessions. Dan’s artistry has helped to memorialize life’s important moments, and his photos have become staples in homes across the country. He has said on numerous occasions, “I love photographing life! Maybe one day you’ll allow me to photograph yours!”

In addition to portrait photography, Dan has a personal love of nature. Many of his award winning subjects have been of landscapes and nature. Dan has also shot product photography for brochures and catalogs, lifestyle portraits and animal and pets. Even when he is doing activities such as a round of golf, or a day in the woods-his camera is never far away. For Dan, photography is a passion, a career and a hobby.
