I am Jeff Mayes, originally from Pennsylvania — Allentown to be exact — the good side of the state. I moved to Massachusetts in 1987 and initially worked as a production electrician (theatre, dance, concerts, etc…). I have broad reaching interests in many areas such as Photography, Genealogy, Scouting, and the Outdoors. I am particularly interested in Outdoor Leadership.
This website is designed to highlight and share those interests. I hope you find it useful - please contact me if you have any questions or want to explore something further.
Lasmuigh is the Irish (Gaelic) word for outdoors. Between volunteering with the Scouts and the Appalachian Mountain Club, I spend a lot of time leading trips and teaching skills.
Being outdoors, kayaking or hiking is a passion and something that I love to share with others.
I started shooting photographs as a hobby and moved into professional photography in 2004 and specialize in a number of areas including Emergency Services (EMS, Fire & Police) and Performing Arts.
My photography has been used on many websites as well as in Boston area newspapers and national magazines. Portfolios showcasing the various types of Photography that I specialize in are here. Enjoy!
Website development has been a part of my work portfolio for many years. A well-developed site can be your most cost-effective means of attracting visitors and converting them to paying customers.
Generally I work on small projects in areas/services that I’m personally interested in for customers on limited budgets.
Tracing ancestors as far back as possible, has brought great satisfaction and pleasure to many people. I enjoy the challenge of finding living distant relatives and sharing what I have learned. Adding in new parts of the family tree and sharing our history is a part of of the joy.
