Behind the Lens

Chuck  has lived in Florida since the age of 5.  In fact, he  still remembers his Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Ortega, at San Jose Episcopal Day School in Jacksonville, FL.  Living there for most of his formative years, as a teenager, his family moved to Tampa, FL where he's lived ever since.  He imersed himself into photography as an amateur in 1993 using 35mm film SLRs. As his skills increased, his artform also evolved into the modern digital photography era. A talented professional, Chuck provides his clients with imagery that genuinely captures the beauty and essence of his subjects.

In 1994, Chuck graduated from the University of South Florida (USF -Tampa campus) with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science (BA). Since graduation, he's held several professional positions including that of probation officer, credit manager, Senate Aide, and is currently a program manager in an educational nonprofit organization. He also attended graduate school at USF (GO BULLS!!!) and obtained his Masters of Public Administration (MPA) degree.  In addition to photography, he enjoys spending time with family (wife and two children - both boys), traveling, reading, martial arts, athletics, strategic wargaming, video gaming, and politics. 

A little more about Chuck: He loves dogs, is allergic to cats, loves many genres of music, loves science fiction (his favorite TV series is "The Expanse" now on Amazon), he loves "Game of Thrones" (Season 8, not so much...), he loves recreational firearms shooting, and, in another life, he'd be an Archaeologist.
