I recently had the pleasure of photographing the before and after photos for the  Arts Council of Wilmington 2014 Designer Showcase home. The home was open from May 2-18 and was a grand Georgian, located at 1909 Gillette Drive in Forest Hills on the Cape Fear Country Club. The designers did a magnificent job and  I wanted to feature some of the before and after photos of a few of the many rooms that were decorated by this talented group. Its not the whole home, but it will give you an idea of the work that went into pulling such an event together.

This months Story Of A House article in Salt Magazine featured a really special and unique home. I have had the chance to see and tour many styles of homes, but never had I been inside a geodesic dome dwelling. Until now. When Senior Editor Ashley Wahl informed me that the photo shoot would be of a domed structure I became intrigued and excited. Most of the domed structures I had read about were usually set somewhere in the woods, mountains or even a meadow. You know the setting. Isolated, primitive, even completely off the grid. So when Ashley told me we were photographing one that was located on the ICWW, well, I was more than ready to see what what is store for me. Needless to say, it was a very cool structure. Different, not for everyone, but well suited to the occupants, the Smiths. A cool couple, a cool house. Pick up an issue to read Ashley’s article on the home and its occupants and you’ll see what I mean. In the mean time here are a few pics from Under The Dome.
