Chuck and Vanessa’s biographies follow:
Chuck has been a photographer for about 15 years, and has been working with Henry’s for just over 2 years.
He started out by doing automotive photography using a Nikon D40 and a kit lens. After a couple of years, he upgraded to a D90, and then a D700. During this time, Chuck started doing pet photography for Rescue Organizations. Half his weekends were spent at car shows, the other half at rescue events. He is also the dedicated photographer for Pet Value on Innes Road for all their events.
Chuck started wildlife photography about 6 or 7 years ago. During this period he switched to a Canon camera, and went through 3 different bodies, striving for the perfect mix of gear. He has traveled to Africa, Mexico, Belize, and Turks and Caicos. Most of his days off are spent shooting wildlife and nature.
He has recently switched everything to Olympus. The micro 4/3 system is lighter and easier to handle. He started a YouTube channel reviewing different camera gear and shooting wildlife photos.
