Look Back at Fiber & Beads

Looking back at art I photographed last year by some amazing artists working in fiber and beads.  The first is a bead work bird by Ingrid Bernhardt.  Then a felt teapot by Shelley Jones.  I will be uploading more of Shelley's work soon.  The last is a woven sculptural wall piece by Susan Iverson.  All these images had their own unique color and surface qualities that made photographing them a challenge.

Craddock Terry Hotel

These images of the Craddock Terry Hotel in Lynchburg, Va., were taken while on location to photograph the Virginia Community Capitol board and staff.  The VCC provided funding to turn this old shoe factory into a wonderful boutique hotel.  More about the VCC and VHDA board photographs later.  Also as an aside, years ago I photographed the Craddock Terry Shoe Co. for Virginia Business magazine.

The Laramie Project

These images are from a production of The Laramie Project put on by The Collegiate School in Richmond, Virginia in the Spring 2014.  I have included these images because it was amazing to photograph this play as always, but also because of the wonderful visual quality of the production.  Jon Shelley and Zach Townsend, along with their students in theater production, created an amazing set,  They used rear screen projections to great advantage.  The images of the performers and the sets turned out so well.  I should include a disclaimer, I teach photography there as an adjunct faculty member.
