Tell us about yourself!
I am an Olympus Mirrorless shooter, however, I have been recently shooting more film. With film, I rotate between a few rangefinders. My photographic experiences encompasses shooting weddings, portraits, fine art photography, lighting consultations, and I’ve assisted with shoots for Grassroots Motorsports Magazine, SCCA, Rally American, and 1320 Video.
QUESTIONS WITH CHUCK
What is your favorite kind of photography and why?
I enjoy street photography, catching people in their natural element. By shooting more film, it forces me to think about light more.
How would you describe your photographic style?
I enjoy looking for patterns and changes in texture.
What is the most valuable lesson you’ve learned about photography so far?
Take your camera with you, please just take it.
What drives your photographic passion?
Being able to capture a moment, even though that moment is being chased by another moment. It's clicking the shutter that matters.
What are the key elements in a good photograph?
Just take the photo, and if the subject is true and just, it will be a great photo. As long as you like it, that’s the main thing.
