Panoramic Photography for Architects and Interior Designers
Recently I have been presenting my panoramic photographic art with architects and interior designers. I present several 4′ and 6′ mounted prints (really fun to transport!), plus many smaller proof prints. I explain my panoramic process, how my images differ from those of other photographers, the advantages of the panoramic image, and potential applications (wall decor, 3D art wraps, way finding, murals, etc.) for the images, along with possible funding sources.
The panoramic cityscapes have been very well received, especially with firms having interior design departments. I would be happy to have 15-30 minutes to present my work, and with the first firm we were for over 1.75 hours! People kept dropping in, and they kept probing different usage possibilities for my panoramic cityscape art. It has been a good start!
Since I am presenting to architects, I know I need to build up my interior images. Below are some for your consideration. The first 2 are from The Church of the Apostles in Atlanta and were shot for the architect and my friend David Brown. The expansive views could not have been captured any other way.

Microsoft Corporate Event Photography: US EPG MGX
That is “US Enterprise and Partner Group”.’
I am a Microsoft Partner, but I still don’t know what this group does. These were the managers, and they had a good year financially. My take-away: Oracle is in deep trouble and the cloud is king.
The event took place at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead:
SpringHill Suites Art Exhibit
I have been shooting panoramic cityscapes for a little more than a year. Actually, that is not accurate. I shot 4 panos during all of 2011 and only began capturing cityscapes again in March of this year. The summer haze clears when the fall weather cools off, but, for some reason, I failed to start shooting panos again then, and I wasted about 6 months of “good” weather!
I began shooting again in balmy(?) March, when wind gusts of 50 mph and temperatures in the 20’s and 30’s are common on building roof tops. (I will not fail to shoot during fall this year!)
But I digress from the purpose of this post.
In March I began trying to secure new locations from which to photograph. Mike Hinks, GM of SpringHill Suites by Marriott – Atlanta Buckhead, was kind enough to allow me access to his hotel, mostly because Mike Giamundo, GM of the JW Marriott Atlanta Buckhead, also allowed me on his roof.
Long story short, Mike Hinks saw some of my work and invited me to participate in this year’s SpringHill Suites ArtNight, their annual art exhibit. So for the last several weeks I have been editing 29 images, and last week, Owen Thompson (Digital Picture, Inc.) began printing (3) 4 foot and (3) 6 foot prints that will be displayed in the Boardroom that night. These prints will be for sale and 10% will be donated to the SpringHill Suites charity: Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, our local hospital).
If you are around Buckhead this Thursday, May 10th, from 5-8pm, please be my guest at this worthy event. Donna and I are out of town, but David Brown, a photographer friend, will be filling in for me. Light hors d’oeruvres will be served, and complimentary parking will be provided by the hotel. (Free parking in Buckhead? When does that happen?!)
Me, an artist? Whoddathunkit?
