When Charles bought his first Nikon F SLR the resulting studies were of derelict architecture, machinery and also street photography - a genre that the New York Times has called, ".....shots of everyday people living out their private lives in public". In this type of portraiture, he has the keen ability to capture life experiences of people reflected in their faces and gestures. For this and carefully composed imagery of man-made objects mingling with the natural landscape, he believes it is important to utilize available light for the best effect on the first take.
