Robert Charles

"Robert has an amazing ability to find and create unique frames for his subjects that create an intimate voyeuristic quality as well as draw the viewer's eyes right into the subject of the image. You will find Robert often throwing the typical restrictive rules of photographic composition to the wind as he creates dramatic images with his creative use of negative space. Robert's ability to create dramatic compositions using off camera lighting with a mixture of under exposed backgrounds to enhance the atmospheric lighting, making each scene uniquely intimate and dramatic. His visual interpretation of life in motion seems to be the most natural of all. Mixed with his moody and romantic visual sense, he takes every movement and every shadow mixed with atmospheric light to wrap these moments around his brain to process the final result. He rarely repeats the same post processing method twice, if at all. His diverse photography and creative style opens his work to an unlimited audience. On the other side of his artistry is his dramatic post production style."

I am always looking to catch an out-of-the-ordinary perspective or angle to express my interpretation of the world. My choice of subject is mostly intuitive, fueled by a need to find the uncommon in the everyday. With my work I hope to start an intimate conversation that takes the viewer to a place of quiet contemplation.
