Chuck's thoughts about his craft ...
Photography is the only medium that can take a person anywhere in the world without physically being there. Photography brings distant places one has never seen directly into their mind's eye and imagination. They can be transported around the world, into the center of a flower, or deep into a time they thought they might never see. They can see the great mountain ranges of the world, places they've only dreamt about, or view the animal kingdoms of distant lands.
Photography gives a person the ability to experience all the glory and splendor that nature has to offer, captured in a moment that may never come again ... preserved as a spectacular image, meant to last a lifetime.
These experiences and more, are the gift ... the craft ... and the art of photography.
For all these reasons... I am a photographer.
