About Charles

My name is Charles M. and I am a Chicago native who grew up with a camera instead of toys. I am a retired Information Technology Dean with a great amount of time on my hands.
My career and love of photography stems from my appreciation of 35 mm film. I derived tremendous satisfaction from developing film in anticipating of preserving memories in print and creating a visual diary. After years of hard work I achieved my goal and built my own darkroom. Shortly thereafter I partnered with a fellow photo lover to form a company. To stay solvent we shot political campaigns, street fairs, weddings and community events achieving invaluable experience. Honing the skills I learned from film and darkroom techniques I channeled those formulas to digital photography. Landscape photography is my main interest which is doubly enhanced by my love of travel. At this phase in my life I am pursuing both passions which afford me the opportunity to critique and expand my portfolio.
I enjoy mentoring and sharing techniques with others and hope that through this medium my art can make a difference in the way the world is viewed.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Photography

With the help of other photographers I started my own company. We soon began to shoot political events and had the opportunity to help shoot aldermanic and mayoral campaigns. I have taken what I learned from film and darkroom and channeled those skills to digital. Landscape Photography has really peaked my interest, and I'm looking forward to more traveling. I have taught continuing education classes on photography at local two-year colleges
