Guest Speaker: Mr. Chuck LittleMr. Chuck Little will speak about how he got started with still photography (film) and moved into digital, about his philosophy on photography (the "why I do it") and then talk about the advice he’s been given along his journey to becoming a more accomplished photographer, including how and why he got started on his photo-a-day project, and some of the challenges he’s faced as he’s gone through two years of shooting a posting in that project.
"Chuck Little is a native Virginian, though his career has taken him around the globe. After high school and two years of college, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps to serve as a broadcast journalist, where his service in the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service took him to Canada, Japan, Spain, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Korea. His last duty station was at Marine Corps Base Hawaii Kaneohe Bay. After leaving active duty, he immediately went to work at KGMB-9 as videographer, editor, producer and eventually reporter. In 1996, he was presented an opportunity to return to work for the Marine Corps as a civilian, and has been doing so for the past 17 years.
Although his background is primarily in broadcast, Chuck has long enjoyed still photography as a hobby; that hobby took a turn for the serious five years ago when his wife bought him his first DLSR. Since then, his hobby has blossomed into a full-blown passion, so much so that Chuck intends to pursue photography professionally and full-time once he retires from civil service, sometime in the next 5-10 years."
