During the summer and fall of 2014, Ryan Abrahamsen and Andy Thompson set out on a pontoon raft mounted with six cameras on top of a telescoping 10-foot pole, the first 360-degree, surface-level photo tour of an entire river-the James River. The Tour of the James was initiated as part of Envision the James, a collaborative effort with the National Geographic Society, the Chesapeake Bay Conservancy and the James River Association. At the end of their 340 mile journey, they had taken more than 360,000 panoramic images and created a visual map of the James River, showcasing the scenic and historic beauty of the river, from the headwaters to the Chesapeake Bay. During this presentation, Ryan and Andy will share their photographs and stories of this incredible journey.
