While in Richmond, VA this weekend, photographing for Sigma Phi Epsilon, our tour bus visited Hollywood Cemetery. There we saw the grave of William Lazell Phillips (“Uncle Billy”), one of the founders in 1901 and a man who devoted his entire adult life to SigEp. While there I was struck by the beauty of the cemetery. The following day Donna and I spent about an hour there on a self-tour. I was impressed by the geometry of the monuments, certainly, but mostly by the engraved sentiments testifying to the quality of the people buried there.
I shot just a couple of images, but I will return. Enjoy and please read the image captions. These were amazing men!
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.

Best of the Bentley Collections
On Good Friday David Brown, architect and friend of the Bentley family, and I had the privilege of photographing some of Fred Bentley’s art collection at the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art.
I intended to simply photograph panoramic images of the art, but Mr. Bentley (“Uncle Fred” to his friends, and everyone is his friend!) happened to drop by to see the collection before the opening tomorrow. It was a pleasure to hear him describe some of his favorite pieces and learn about the artists.
David and I will return tomorrow evening to photograph the opening.
