Oh, to walk where the ocean kisses the land!! To have my feet in the sand while the surf surges over them and swirls around my ankles - this is pure bliss. If only I could capture this feeling and share it with you!
Thank you for viewing my photographs. I hope that they bring you the feeling of having your feet in the sand.
From a young age, I have been in love with the craft and art of photography. I was fortunate to work as a commercial printer in two prestigious photo labs, as well as, an assistant photographer in a high-end fashion studio. Today I work as a chemist and own a small studio and photography business.
My interest in history, both natural and human, informs my choice of photographic subjects. My favorite mentor taught me when outdoors nature tells us about relationships, the cycles of life and matter, organic and inorganic: “just look around and listen.” This lesson still inspires my photographic vision.
I love revisiting deserted buildings, farms, ranches and junk yards over time as they return to nature—the sacred circle. These abandoned places whisper stories of our ancestor’s dreams and lives when we take the time to look and listen. My ambition is to share those impressions.

Charles Pruitt began taking photographs over 40 years ago when he was given an old 35mm camera by a family friend.
While living in Hawaii, Chuck was mentored by Boone Morrison, founder of the Volcano Art Institute in Volcano National Park. This association led to meeting and learning from Brett Weston, Minor White, and Paul Caponigro. During this time Chuck began working in large and medium film formats, abstract photography using color infrared film and long exposures; often taking a 4x5 Crown Graphic on backpacking trips.
Chuck studied photography after returning to California. While in college he combined Chemistry and Photo classes to recreate historic techniques of wet plate negatives, cyanotypes, platinum and albumin printing methods. Chuck received state and national recognition for his experimental prints.Chuck took up digital photography in 2004, but still uses his 50+ year old Hassleblad.
