Let's take a moment to welcome aboard Curbed Atlanta's new in-house photographer, Jonathan Phillips. The University of Georgia alum has been shooting professionally across the country for 15 years and has racked up a closet-full of awards. Says Phillips: "I love being able to capture someone's story through photographs and to share it with others. I also love dogs, traveling and the smell of coffee — just not actually drinking it." Phillips will crisscross Atlanta to capture this rapidly changing city in all its glory, continuing our Visual Journeys series of photo essays and embarking on new projects in the pipeline. Feel free to send ideas for photo packages (or anything else that involves Atlanta's built environment and interesting neighborhood news) to the tipline. In the meantime, have a gander at Phillips' awesome portfolio right over here.
