Charles Hildreth
Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
My name is Charles Hildreth and I’m a portrait photographer from Denver. I majored in Journalism & News Editorial at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I put a strong emphasis on journalistic writing. My childhood consisted of a fascination with Hollywood heroes like Indiana Jones and an appreciation for the romanticism of history and Arthurian tales. In 2006, I took a 90-day, 16-country tour of Europe where I explored as many big and small art museums as I could. It enriched the understanding I once had of world culture, opened my eyes to new cuisine and artists, and put my degree in perspective as far as objectivity was concerned. My portraiture work is a combination of any of these elements, mixed with an objective observation of humankind and an internal struggle for self-confidence in an opinionated world. My work, to me, is flawed, and always will be, as it continues to be a reflection of me, the photographer. I’m not a photographer’s photographer. I can’t sit in a room and chat about camera logistics or ratios, nor have I ever had the desire to. I know what works for the content I produce and gradually grow from a core of photography appreciation.

I'm a natural light shooter - purely for the mood and the story of the moment.

If I could one day fit in among other artists as a storyteller, I think it would be a better fit than photographer, but for now, this is the one medium where I can explore this desire to produce art. I have never wanted to pigeon-hole myself into one particular craft. In the future I hope to continue submit work to publications, print work for local art shows, and explore a world full of engaging individuals.
I would love your support there, if you have the app: www.instagram.com/hildreth (hildreth)

Awesome work Charles--you have a lens for an eye and a mind that works like a shutter--a steel trap that that grabs all of the right light and cast the unwanted away.
You may never have wanted to pigeon-hole myself---
if your other skills and talents exceed you ability to capture a near perfect image---
holes will never be your problem---
pigeons on the other hand can deposit their discontent on any one
