I'm Chuck and I take pictures. I am an LA Native, born at Cedars-Sinai, so I got started right away with the Hollywood thing.

Outside of photography, I'm a musician. I have a pretty respectable guitar collection (or maybe its out of control, depends who you ask). I've also worked as a sound effects designer in the video game industry. Over the last 2 decades, I've been fortunate to have worked on some of the biggest franchises in gaming.

I live in Pasadena with my wife, daughter, and dog (an insane Boston Terrier / Pug mix) named Loki. We live in a 100-year-old house owned by 2 cats that graciously let us stay there in exchange for twice daily feedings and occasional head rubs.

Working with me is a little different. I'm not hung up on photography rules (and you shouldn't be either). I'm all about flow and vibe and helping you feel comfortable so we can get some great shots that feel real.

Our session will be low-key and conversational; I chat (and joke) more than I pose. We will collaborate to get you the photos that will rock the world. From the moment you contact me, I'll be your guide. I give you all the info you need so you just show up on your shoot day, stress free and ready to go! You be just you, I'll take care of the rest.
