This session will include a photo walk around uptown Charlotte. We recommend comfortable shoes and ability to walk 1-3 miles.

About The Artist

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY with dreams of becoming an architect, Chris Charles studied Architectural Engineering at SUNY Farmingdale College of Technology prior to a "short" 12-year stint as a US Army Paratrooper (random, but true) ...all the while honing his skills in coffee making and chocolate cake eating. After some years in the private sector as an IT professional, Charles then earned a degree in Graphic Design from The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham and has been able to use his technical training and natural ability to successfully carve a niche for himself in local and national markets.

His client list includes Red Bull, Spike Lee, Moleskine, Durham County, renowned architect Phil Freelon (designer of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture and Harvey B. Gantt Center), The Thurgood Marshall College Fund, Toyota, and Grammy Nominated artists such as The Foreign Exchange, Rapsody, and Nnenna Freelon. Learn more at christophercharlesphotography.com.
