Atlanta has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.

I had always been enthralled by cameras, art, and color ever since I can remember, but I guess I can say that my “official” photography journey began in high school.
