More about Charles Z....

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting new people and getting to listen to their stories. I then have the opportunity to take those stories and express them in an artistic way by means of photography. I find joy in being able to capture personalities as well as showing people a side of themselves they may have never seen before.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I have done many shoots involving lifestyle, fashion, and swimwear. I always try to make every shoot I go on special and stand out from the rest by sticking to a certain theme or by telling a story about the subject. Moreover, I do my best to make sure the subject feels at ease and comfortable during the shoot, especially if they are camera shy and are not that experienced with posing for a photographer.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

I have not participated in any award competitions thus far.

A fun fact about this photographer

I like to do voices and impersonations of various figures in pop culture. I think my best one is Stitch or Gollum.
