Artistically. Reflecting. Reality.
Blending elements of lifestyle portraiture and contemporary street photography, Chuck Fletcher (b. 1968) uses a camera to engage people and create wonder about who they are. His unique documentary-shooting style often reflects a personal impression or powerful combinations of action and emotion. Chuck’s professional acumen, close-in sharp style, and deliberate framing of distinctive facial traits elevates the discipline of photographic realism.
Chuck’s images are intentionally shot in public where the environment and subject are both dynamic. Theses blended challenges make open air photography an exciting way to transform everyday people, doing artistic things, into community models.
In his own words – It’s the photographer’s job to creatively balance scale, light and luck. The best photographs creatively compose compelling subjects while demonstrating excellence in trade craft. The right photograph can have lifetimes of impact.
Photography is a way to connect me to myself. It is through this struggle of self-discovery that I am able to see what matters about others.
Chuck is an accomplished Washington DC regional photographer and scientific author with a background in image processing. In addition to his photo work with the Federal Government’s Executive Office, he is a pro bono photographer for the TAPROOT Foundation, an organization that helps non-profits, a freelance photographer for Reston Lifestyle Magazine, and owns Rush Street Gallery, a digital exhibition of contemporary artistic photography.
