Chuck Kimmerle


It’s not the final photograph which drives Chuck’s passion for photography, it’s the sense of exploration and discovery he experiences every time he is out with the camera. For Chuck, photography is about the journey.

There is no doubt that his former career as a newspaper photojournalist has heavily influenced his landscape work. His photographs prominently feature a strong subject, often tell a story and invite questions, and are usually compositionally balanced and centered. He wants the viewer to see the subject as he did, straightforward and in the center of their field of view.

As an eternal cheerleader for the underdog, Chuck prefers to photograph in areas which are off the beaten photographic path, fly-over country, discovering for himself the overlooked and under-appreciated quirks and eccentricities of his surroundings.
