    ​I called a lot of local professional photographers to cover a very specific kind of event, and Charles is the only one that was up to the task. He reached out and performed beyond the mark, his pricing was more than reasonable, and he delivered the final product in an extremely quick and professional manner. I already have several other events in mind where I will just use him and not even consider anyone else.

    Charles did a wonderful job for us taking pictures and video of a memorial service for our family. We found him to be extremely responsive to any request that we had. We would find it hard to believe that you would not also receive such wonderful service.

    We are from out of town and had a memorial for my Mother in Huntsville, Utah. We contacted Charles with short notice, in a difficult time and everything was clockwork. Charles showed up early, stayed longer than contracted, awesome photography, videography and prepared the DVD's sooner than promised. We feel fortunate to meet someone who loves what they do, is a professional and completes the project from start to finish. I would recommend Charles to anyone I know.

    Charles was professional during our event and worked hard to capture just the right images. I received over 900 images from Charles in less than 24 hours. I would recommend him and will utilize his talents again in the future.

    Thank you very much for working with us. The pictures turned out great, especially under the conditions we had. Charles was extremely fast in turning the pictures around, 1 day!

    Professional and quick to deliver photographs from my event. I would highly recommend Charles if you need a photographer in the Salt Lake City area.

    Words cannot describe how pleased I was with Charles' work. I hired him to take photos of my proposal at 11 pm. Not only was he early and all ready but he took the most amazing pictures. Really capturing the emotion of the moment. After it was over I went to pay him and he refused payment. I would give this guy my business any day of the week and wish he lived in Arizona so I could hire him to do the wedding! Great guy and even greater work.

    Charles was on time, ready to go and worked well in the background to photograph an event that was active throughout. He was cheerful and accommodating and best of all, the pictures he took were awesome. I highly recommend him.

    Charles photographed our store grand opening event recently. He was on-time, professional and every photo he took was online the next day and usable. I'd highly recommend Charles for any event or occassion.

    Charles has been filling in for us here at for years now. He is always a joy to work with! Always delivers what he promises and has the highest level of professionalism around.

  • 5/5 stars July 7, 2013

    It has been my privilege to work with Charles on several photography projects over the last five years. I am always delighted with the results. He is a wonderful collaborator; always open to new ideas. I particularly appreciate the way Charles sees the big picture; noticing opportunities for an outstanding image that other photographers might miss, with a change of perspective or lens, etc. He truly goes the second mile for the sake of beauty.

  • 5/5 stars June 26, 2013

    Charles is very professional but warm and friendly along with it. Its a great combination to work with. Its easy to feel comfortable with him so the shots turn out natural and in the moment. He has an eye for lighting and artistic synergy between the elements comprising each shot. Overall, a master photographer.

  • 4/5 stars May 15, 2013

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I've been doing a lot of event photography. Grand openings, Corporate functions, model portfolios.
Fine art at

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. A 1920s themed dinner party at the Grand America with more than a thousand guests. I shot individuals, groups, dancing.

I shot a masquerade party at the Salt Lake City/County building. It was fun to see the building taken over by elegant-looking people in masks.

I've been shooting a lot of local fashion shows.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Look for competence, but don't be too picky, unless you are an expert.

For instance, if you're having a backyard party, don't simply look for photographers who showcase backyard party pictures.

Consider the photographer's overall skills and capabilities, don't rely so much on finding a photographer that already is showing the shots you have in mind, because so many of the winning shots are really the result of the photographer's ability to be spontaneous.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. It often takes an hour of processing pictures for every hour of shooting. In addition, the time there are a lot of other factors. The quality that experience brings. And that experience took a lot of work and gas, expenses, and time. All these come together, and we hope they will pay off for everyone.

There are a lot of tips that must become second-nature, in order to get consistently good results.
For instance, composition: Watch for clutter. don't let junk in the background get entangled with the subject.
On the other hand, things in the background can add context, which is very desirable. A picture of a person without context can be quite boring, even meaningless.
That's important, especially for event photography.
