We celebrate the life of Paul Grant Beswick. He lived a life full of traveling, skiing, playing golf, capturing amazing places with his photography and enjoying a cold Coca-Cola. Paul passed away on April 24 in Marietta, Georgia after a valiant fight with Multiple Sclerosis. He was born in Manchester England in 1945 to a proud United States serviceman and his British bride. At age two he immigrated with his mother to the United States on the Queen Mary. Paul graduated from Georgia Tech in 1970 with a degree in Architecture. He worked several years as an architect before changing careers to become an architectural photographer. During this part of his career he photographed national landmarks such as Monticello and Mount Vernon and most of the state capitals. He was well known for his work photographing interiors and southern gardens for several widely read publications. Paul was a member of the American Institute of Architects. In 1994 he received an AIA award for his photographic contributions to the AIA Guide to Architecture of Atlanta.
