Hi! I’m Garrick Hoffman, a Maine native and resident.
I’m a professional photographer, writer, and graphic designer. I graduated from the University of Southern Maine magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s in Media Studies in 2020.
I’ve been a professional photographer since 2017, beginning my career as a freelance photographer and contributing writer for Mainely Media newspapers. In addition, I was the marketing coordinator, social media manager and photographer for all three Gritty McDuff’s brewpubs for nearly three years. An institution in Maine, Gritty’s Portland location is known for being Maine’s original brewpub, and the second brewery overall in Maine.
I’m now a freelance photographer doing senior & family portraits, professional headshots, product photography, landscapes, events and more. I’ve now done work for: Thrive Productions, King of Hearts Films, Dan Chaimowitz Productions, Activity Maine magazines, Stone Fort Distillery, Circulate Socks (Orfiks), and a myriad of other clients. I’ve also served as a “second shooter” under professional photojournalist/photographer Fred Field for the 2019 Bowdoin College Alumni Reunion, as well as under wedding photographer Leah Michaud for several weddings. See below for what kind of media my work has appeared in!
In addition to these occupations, I’m also a skilled copyeditor, videographer and actor. I’ve now acted in three films (all in 2020), shot B-roll footage for short film “Wrong Lanes,” written press releases for several local short films that ended up receiving significant media attention, and modeled for a local photographer. Contact me if you feel you could use any of these services!
