  • a moment in time captured...

    Historical images of Sanibel, Captiva & the World, since 1935...


    "Because of one's need to illustrate, often a photograph is created;  sheer beauty demands a photo."


    Experiences in Charlie's life demanded photos.  He has spent 68 years capturing images.  He has attended 39 Elderhostels in six different countries.  His life work was agriculture and sailing.  Then, retiring to the home that his grandfather built in 1908 on Woodring Point at the mouth of Tarpon Bay on Sanibel Island, expanded Charlie's vintage and current stocks of IMAGES of NOW and THEN.


    To share his experiences with you, Charlie became an enthusiastic photographer and printer.  He was very fortunate to have attended Cal Kowal's photography courses at the Cincinnati Art Academy.  He has  attended workshops with Canadian-born Craig Stevens in Maine, New Mexico and two sessions in Provence, France;  Doug Merriam on lighting in Santa Fe; Kip Brundage on color;  Liz Opalenik on coloring;  Arnold Newman on portraits.  Most recently, Charlie attended John Sexton's Photography Printing Workshop at John's home, high on the mountainside of Carmel Valley, Caloifornia.  John had the honor of being Ansel Adams' assistant, and Charlie considers both Sexton and Adams as his mentors.
