I have worked as a newspaper photographer, wedding photographer and sold to magazines. Since 2005 I am retired and shoot what I want and that is the street. Most of the shots are from Charlotte, but I add street shots from other cities that I visit.
90 imagesI am a street photographer and I shoot mostly in B&W. My camera is the Fujifilm Pro 2 and I own the 23, 27, and 35mm lens. Having worked for over 10 years for a weekly newspaper I photograph mostly people and for the most part these people are doing something. Today we have some of the very best photo equipment that has ever been available. I shot with a DSLR and SLR for over 50 years with name brand equipment Fuji is the best I have worked with and it is so much lighter to carry.
35 imagesWhen I see an interesting face, I often ask if I could take a photo for this gallery. I call it Charlotte Smiles, but there are a few from other places other than Charlotte
40 imagesThe Charlotte Pride Festival has become one of the largest gatherings in Charlotte. The Parade held on Sunday is the largest parade held in Charlotte (I am in Church so I miss that each year). There were a few women who were topless, but I didn't show that as I do not know how old they are and they have to be over 18 for me to display them.
43 imagesNODA is a Charlotte Art District. I hope that it keeps its current style, but Charlotte is the second fastest growing city in the USA. and so progress is coming to NODA and some of the charm is going away.
