About Me

Originally from Hawaii and now a resident of Colorado, I have been an amateur photographer since 1973. Having the experience of being a private pilot, a softball coach, and a  motorcyclist  has shaped my photographic interests and skills.

At the moment, I'm particularly interested in shooting the human form in nature.  I'm still experimenting a bit, but here are some examples: http://www.chuckpringlephoto.com/portraiture.

If you'd like references, I can recommend my MM models I've worked with most recently and/or frequently, or who know me best personally.  Many of them have been unescorted each time we've worked together.  I don't necessarily expect everyone to automatically have that level of trust, and I do not mind it at all.
I like shoots to be collaborative between myself and the model(s).  I usually approach shoots without a fully developed concept - I typically just start with a location, the seed of an idea, and let the shoot unfold organically.  I don't usually go into much detail about a shoot beforehand for this reason.  Since I do most of my work on-location, and since most of those locations are outdoors, I don't usually book shoots very far in advance.  I like to have a sense of what the weather is expected to be, and select locations based on this.  Please bear in mind that some of the locations I select can be time-sensitive, and their appearance and suitability can change dramatically in a matter of days (due to weather, plant growth, etc.).

I enjoy beauty of all kinds, but with my work I prefer depicting natural beauty.  I am always seeking models brave enough to not mind working outside in the elements, within reason of course.  Models also brave enough to not hide behind clothing are welcome as well.  I like simplicity and timelessness.  I like reality, but I also enjoy the surreal.  I try to stay open-minded.  I don't usually like to define what I do, or box myself into (or out of) any particular kinds of work.

If you've seen my portfolio, you know that I shoot nudes, but ONLY with those who WANT to be photographed nude.  If I contact you, then you can safely assume I've not only seen your portfolio, but I've also read your profile.  If it says that you "don't shoot nudes, so don't even ask", then I already assume it will be a clothed shoot and I won't try to turn it into something else.  None of the models I've worked with have ever been pressured by me to take their clothes off.  I am respectful of boundaries, and I want anyone I work with to be safe, comfortable, and happy before, during, and after a shoot.  I won't pressure a model to do anything they're not fully comfortable doing.
I am based in Boulder, Colorado, and get to the front range areas from Ft. Collins to Colorado Springs on occasion. 

I'm always seeking opportunities to experiment and grow.  I understand the need to build a quality portfolio, so I am open to mutually beneficial TFP, but paid work is given top priority.  If there is anything you would like to try, a new dimension you would like to add to your portfolio, I am very open to hearing and implementing your ideas.  I am comfortable working with existing light or artificial light.  I my resulting images to be more natural, timeless, raw, and gritty, more rooted in reality. 

I'm always looking for new people to work with, experienced or not.  I enjoy collaborating with models and prefer to not limit the ideas they bring to the shoot, as some of my best images have come that way.  I am also patient, respectful of boundaries, and want my models to be comfortable and happy above all else.

To see more of my work, please check out the work done by the wonderful models I've been fortunate to work with here on IG at @silvverr506.

I exhibit my work periodically, and prints  of many of my images are available for sale in sizes up to 24x36.  Prices do vary, so please inquire if you are interested. Thanks!

Chuck
