Atlantic Archives is owned and operated by Richard Leo and Jane Fischer Johnson, in Savannah, GA.


Over the past 20+ years they have established a huge body of work which has earned accolades from the most discriminating architects, designers and publishers -- both nationally and internationally.


Atlantic Archives' approach to photography is based on a desire to artfully illustrate architecture and interiors with a natural feel, through the avoidance of excessive artificial lighting and hyper post-production techniques.


Embracing this refined aesthetic has resulted in a consistent and expanding portfolio.  Atlantic Archives produces dynamic images that reflect and complement our clients visions.


In addition to the photographic services Atlantic Archives provides, the company takes great pride in creating and sustaining relationships with many top publications (Please see Client and Publications page). By keeping current and past clients informed of new opportunities, they are given priority for placement in publications and offered effortless promotion.  This service is provided at no additional charge.


Jane has a proven ability to identify and select rewarding projects, assuring exposure for Atlantic Archives' clients in national and international publications. She also runs a successful location scouting business: Low Country Locations.


Her clients include: Anthropologie/BHLDN; Boden; Starbucks; Frontgate; Chicos; Color Siete; Boston Proper; Lloyd Flanders; Lands' End; Soft Surroundings; Seventh Avenue; Anne Taylor; Chadwick's of Boston; J.Jill; Goodys;Edward Jones; ASICS; Lane Bryant; Sundance; Gold Peak Tea/Coca Cola; Thomasville Furniture; The Tractor Supply Company; American Girl/Mattel; Ralph Lauren; Ford Motor Company; Target; H & M; The American Baking Competition; Meredith Publications; Southern Progress; Time Warner; Clarkson Potter; Rizzoli.






Richard is also an internationally acclaimed guitarist/composer. His idiosyncratic/ self-taught style landed him a contract with the prestigious Blue Note label in 1998. He released 2 CDs with Blue Note and subsequently released 3 CDs with Cuneiform records.


He is still active as a recording artist and just released “Celeste” in May 2014.





Update from the photographers:

Most recently our old friend and dedicated photographer, Russell Powell, joined us as a second shooter.

Russell started his career over 15 years ago as a photojournalist and in 2007 began specializing in international humanitarian photography.  His sense of humor and good nature, not to mention his photography skills, made him the perfect candidate to travel into some of the most remote places on the planet to document the people most affected by poverty and hunger.

Russell decided to revisit his interest in architectural and interior photography, relocating to Savannah to work with us.

We are thrilled to have him here and are looking forward to introducing him and his expertise to our clients.
