Halston Pitman is a professional photographer who has been generously giving his time, talent and skills to The Georgia Trust for the last 10 years. Since 2010, Halston has volunteered to photograph the Trust’s annual list of 10 Places in Peril. Each year over the course of a week, he drives over 1,500 miles around the state—from the mountains to the coast and back to his home in Atlanta—to capture detailed shots of these sites. His professional, high-quality images are shared with media throughout the Southeast, bringing much-needed attention to these endangered places. A Georgia native, Halston enjoys visiting historic buildings and going inside some of the state’s most forgotten places. When he’s not volunteering for the Trust, Halston is travelling around the country taking photos of high-speed racing events for his company, MotorSportMedia
Since 1978, The Georgia Trust has recognized a volunteer of the year with the Camille W. Yow Award, which is named in honor of a longtime volunteer and its first recipient.
