Charles HildrethCharles Hildreth is a portrait photographer and he describes himself as a “natural light explorer”. He majored in Journalism and News Editorial at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he put a strong emphasis on writing. His childhood consisted of a fascination with Hollywood heroes like Indiana Jones and an appreciation for Arthurian romanticism. In 2006, Charles took a 90-day, 16-country tour of Europe where he explored as many big and small art museums as he could. It enriched the understanding he once had of world culture, opened his eyes to new cuisine, artists, and put his degree in perspective as far as objectivity was concerned. His portraiture work is a combination of any of these elements, mixed with an observation of humankind and an internal struggle for self-confidence in an opinionated world.
