CTPPA is so excited to announce Chuck Arlund
speaking at our June quarterly meeting, to be held on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Cromwell, CT.
Chuck Arlund is full of passion when it comes to photography and wants to inspire the photographer to not be afraid of light. To give an understanding beyond being a natural light photographer, and to learn how to walk into to any photographic situation and know that you can create the kind of light that will take your images to the next level.
See inside Chuck’s head as he shows how he gets his inspiration and transforms it into an image. Learn how he utilizes whatever is around him to create light, by using his own modifiers to broken mirrors.
- Do you struggle with flash?
- Are your images not as good as you would like?
- Have you ever wanted to try something new photographically?
- Do you want to keep your photography fresh?
Learn not to be afraid and how to walk into any situation and know that you can nail it.
Chuck doesn’t use lighting in a traditional style. He has learned that it travels in a straight line and that he can put it anywhere. He will show how he achieves the types of images he creates with this “lack of rules” as some people would say.
Chuck Arlund is a photographer * Chuck Arlund is a rock guitar player * Chuck Arlund loves his family * Chuck Arlund loves Enchiladas and Margaritas * Chuck Arlund is intrigued by fashion * Chuck Arlund wants to show images in galleries * Chuck Arlund loves MAC – both make-up and computers * Chuck Arlund is a D&D nerd.
Chuck’s goal is to photograph for Vogue and Rolling Stone. His passion is music, but photography is his art of choice. He prefers street photography inspired by Saul Leiter, Ray Metzker, and Paul Strand. For additional inspiration he has looked at fashion magazines most of his life for the photos not the style of dress. Chuck lives by the thought that he can die tomorrow and everyday is a blessing. He wakes up and says thank you each day, puts a smile on and embraces the day. That feeling might last 10 minutes or 10 days but by being positive, even surrounded by negativity life is pretty damn good.
Chuck has a passion for sharing all that he knows and he loves to teach as much as he can. There are no secrets in photography. He loves to learn more than anything else. To check out more about Chuck Arlund visit his website at: www.chuckarlund.com

Chuck will be staying an extra day to present his all day workshop “Don’t Be Afraid of the Light”
On June 28, 2012 at the Connecticut River Valley Inn in Glastonbury CT, Chuck will expand upon the program given at CTPPA’s quarterly program. In this workshop you will learn to use off camera lighting in manual mode so you can totally control exposure and your vision. Learn to light with a purpose not just to light something up. We will learn how to meter and use multiple lights properly to create edgy looking images, in a very fashion style of lighting, that do not scream “I was lit by a flash”. You will go back to the basics to be able to fully understand how to use lighting properly. We will also discuss theory on composition and design in photography. You will come away understanding why, not just how to light your subjects.
Don’t miss out on this one and only opportunity to see Chuck Arlund in Connecticut! Meet this innovative and passionate, and all over “cool” guy and let him inspire you to bring a new “look” to your photography.
This workshop is limited to 15 attendees. The only items you need to bring are your camera and your favorite lens. We will meet at the Connecticut River Valley Inn 2195 Main Street, Glastonbury, CT 06033. Registration will begin at 9:00am, the seminar will begin at 9:30am and will end at 5:00pm.
