Posted on Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Here are a bunch of photos I kinda like. I took them while covering the Madonna Circle 75th anniversary black-tie charity gala. All images © Brandon Dill Photography Please don’t steal them. That’s a jerk thing to do.

Now See Here! – Cutting Room Floor

Posted on Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Often my favorite images are ones taken that don’t necessarily work for the nature of the story or the style of the publication where the photographs will run. I tend to forget about them, but I’ve revisited a few from the last several months and I’d like to share them. I’m offering them up without [...]

Environmentalist and Living Lands & Waters founder Chad Pregracke assembled a team of volunteers from local industrial companies and college students from around the country on an “alternative spring break” to help clean up one of the trashiest spots along the entire Mississippi River; McKellar Lake, the main harbor for the city of Memphis.

Now See Here! – The Good Diner

Posted on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

I was hired to photograph several veteran fine-dining servers for Memphis Magazine’s annual restaurant poll issue. I was worried about finding a way to make the subject matter interesting. The art director thought a “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” idea might go a long way toward explaining what these folks tolerate [...]

Now See Here! – Something or Other

Posted on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

Many of you may have seen many of these images before, but like the dreaded “clip show,” I’ve gone back through the archives and found what I feel are interesting new ways to combine images that relate to one another. Most of these were shot in different places and different times but taken as a [...]

Triumphant Return?

Posted on Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Our Hero has strayed for too long. His wanderlust has carried him far but his heart belongs to Our Fair City and now, despite serious doubts, Our Hero ponders his homecoming.

Maximum Warrior will return with a vengeance soon, for now here’s yet another glimpse into the drama, joy and hope of Our Fair City.

Now See Here! – Maximum Warrior

Posted on Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

A few months ago I was hired by Getty Images to photograph a “secret time trial” in rural Arkansas. The event turned out to be a three day corporate confluence of insanity. What resulted came to be called the ”Maximum Warrior Challenge,” a partnership between Maxim Magazine’s “Hometown Hotties,” Dodge/Jeep, the Call of Duty video game [...]

Now See Here! – Country Tour Guide

Posted on Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

We were fortunate enough to have out of town guests at the farm this holiday season. We wanted to show them a good time out there and no one makes a better guide to the ins-’n’-outs and secret spots around the county than my seven-year-old nephew.

Now See Here! – Our Fair City V

Posted on Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

This week we take a brief look inside the lives of those around us. There are movers and shakers (literally and figuratively), folks doing what they love and what they’ve got to do, some heartbreak and some hope, and a little preview of the onslaught of holiday cheer coming down the pipe.

Now See Here! – Our Fair City IV

Posted on Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Our Fair City IV This week we’ve got a bit of everything. From a teenager-attacking robot to a matriarch and her lighter fluid; from a phantom restoration to a collision of commerce and choir music, many threads of Our Fair City are woven together. Stories here:

Now See Here! – Our Fair City III

Posted on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

There are too many stories to be told in Our Fair City. Here are a few I’ve walked through lately for the newspaper. Comment if you’d like to know more about any of these fine folks. In-depth stories can be found on the website:

Now See Here! – Race for the Cure

Posted on Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

I photographed the 18th annual Susan G. Komen Memphis/Midsouth race for the cure this weekend. A record-breaking 19,000+ participants raised over one million dollars to help win the fight against breast cancer. You can read the article about the race here: I also photographed the founder of the Memphis race, Molly Webb Meisenheimer, who [...]

Now See Here! – Brother Man

Posted on Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

My brother and his wife live in a cozy little farm house on a hundred-some-odd acre farm outside of Bowling Green, KY. They share the space with a retired bird-dog named Chief (Chiefo!), a largely absent barn-loving cat named Della, four chickens that keep them well stocked in rich-yolked fresh eggs, and the various rats, [...]

Now See Here! – Our Fair City

Posted on Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

Info: There are too many stories to be told in Our Fair City. Here are a few I’ve been privy to, including protest against (and celebration of) new development, the rising trends of both teen pregnancy as well as stay-at-home dads, a special field trip for some artistically minded youth and the never-ending debate over [...]

Now See Here! – Gubers

Posted on Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

I managed to briefly meet and photograph the current governor of Tennessee as well as both gubernatorial candidates this week and was left with an overwhelming sensation of, oh I don’t want to say hopelessness, … hmm…, dread?, no no. How about numb indifference? Too intense? Well, you get the idea.

Now See Here! – King Willie, Still Standing

Posted on Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

After nearly 18 years as the mayor of Memphis, Willie Herenton abruptly resigned announcing a bid to run for Tennessee’s 9th Congressional district. Herenton, who’s campaign seemed to center on race, was soundly defeated by a 4-1 margin in the Democratic primary by incumbent Steve Cohen. I had the good fortune to photograph “King” Willie [...]
