WILLETTPHOTO_ASDSKY_TWOMIDTOWN_PLAZA_ATLANTA_BUCKHEAD_DESIGN_019

While capturing the updated renovation of Two Midtown Plaza off of West Peachtree Street, we couldn’t help but be inspired by the nearby High Museum and modern styling that Midtown Atlanta has recently steered towards. Featuring a crisp white interior and dramatic lighting fixtures, the visibility near major intersections has given the lobby an inviting appearance. ASD|Sky seamlessly completed the project while taking advantage of the natural light that fills the space for Atlanta’s office-goers.

WILLETTPhotography_JOHN_ROGERS_001Happy to share our latest feature in Modern Luxury’s recent Interiors issue. John Rogers Renovations executed a complete transformation of a home in East Cobb with a modern and updated feel. Brining in elements from Marty Mason Collected Home helped define the relaxed and welcoming style. Pick up an issue of the Interiors magazine to learn more about the design process from the builder and designer themselves. Enjoy!

This shoot was so beyond ordinary for us.  ASD|SKY asked us to capture this Atrium at Concourse Office Park.  (Think the King + Queen Building at 285 + 400.)  There’s some pretty Atlanta-iconic architecture there and when I scouted it for the first time I noticed something sort of magical about the light.   The Building and the Atrium are north facing, but it looks as if the sunlight is streaming directly through the glass.  Seems impossible right?  The light streaming through the windows is actually reflected sunlight that’s bouncing off of Concourse 1, an adjacent building. It only happens in winter months + only for an hour per day.  So after doing some “Daylight Savings time Math”, we decided to photograph across the atrium at exactly 11am and captured that “sunlight”.

This was such a cool shot! It looks like a drone shot but was actually from the 8th floor elevator balcony.

We are pleased to share our latest feature in Modern Luxury’s Interiors magazine. We worked closely with the wonderful team at BluInteriors who skillfully designed and planned the interior of the home. Castro Design Studio was the architect behind the beautifully designed structure, and we thoroughly enjoyed capturing all the details of this beautiful home. Mapping the correct time of day and finding the proper light to showcase the aspects of the home was key. The large windows filtered interior natural light creating a very comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

 Willett Photography recently  teamed up with Rick Bonner from Insidesign to photograph this most elegant hi-rise condo space at 1065 Midtown.  The objective was to photograph not only the gorgeous interiors but the homeowners inside their space too.  The condo photographed amazing right down to the artwork by Michael Matascik hung on the reclaimed pallet wood wall!

Sanford Hall at Georgia Southern in Statesboro, GA dates back to 1936.  Originally a mens dormitory located on the famed Sweetheart Circle of the University it was recently renovated to house the Communication Arts Department.  Lord Aeck Sargent was selected by Georgia Southern University in partnership with Palmer Architects to take on the task of resurrecting this historical building. While special attention was taken to preserve the exterior,  the interior was adapted with large steel supports to create open, column free classrooms, two story rooms and and catwalk through the television and radio studios.  The Project is LEED Certified and won and Innovation Award for Adapted Reuse.  It’s great when our photography can play a small role in helping our clients win awards!

Co-working Office space is on the rise in Atlanta.  The number of these offices and desks available have doubled each year since 2006.  We enjoyed working with DPR Construction to photograph this conversion from a former Crunch Fitness to this updated + sleek WeWork Buckhead.  It’s exciting to see so many  entrepreneurs + startups under one roof.

An epic trip it was.  I mean how could it not be? Five dudes in a rented minivan driving to Kentucky to tour bourbon country.  I suggest every man in America (and maybe Canada too) make this pilgrimage.

We based ourselves in Louisville for three nights where there are plenty of bars and restaurants to keep yourself busy between all the distillery tours.  We managed to find a place, Garage Bar, that had all the Pappy Van Winkles, the entire BTAC (Buffalo Trace Antique Collection) and so much more.  Naturally we tasted every single one of them.

I took this opportunity to document the scenery of the Bourbon Trail and the amazing architecture of the distilleries. Each location had a different process of distilling bourbon and it was incredible to learn the strategy and recipe for some of our favorite spirits.

Here are some of the distilleries we visited during the daytime.
