Art Photographed

These are just examples of some of the art that I have photographed over the last few months. I have not uploaded any art in awhile and wanted to catch up. As I have said before I am lucky to be able to photograph for an amazing group of artists. Enough said, enjoy this small sampling of work.

Tapestry by Andrea Donnelly

I thought I would include the details of these pieces for two reasons. One to show how important details are, and also because it is fun for me to create new work, in a sense, by photographing a detail of some one's art.

GRCC Annual Dinner & Impact Award

The Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner and Impact Awards was a chance to review the accomplishments of the year and give awards out to businesses that had an impact on the community. As I have for many years, I was again the photographer for the event. For me the excitement is the final award given to a small business that has grown and done innovative things as a company as well as in the community. The thrill for me, is that often the winner is a business who's people I know.

Tom Silvestri, President & Publisher, Richmond Times-Dispatch greets people with a cutout of past president, Gary L. Rhodes, Ed.D. President of J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, who could not attend.

With Mr. Silvestri as host the evening took a media theme to showcase achievements.
