About the Artist

Charles McKelroy was born in Freeport, Texas and still lives in the area today. Interest in the world around him initiated his desire to learn photography. Nature, landscapes, wildlife, still life, and birds are his main interest because these are the subjects that most fascinate his imagination. Enjoying and learning from exploring and examining what his favorite photographers have churn out has given Charles his inspiration to capture the beauty around him. Nonetheless, his own creativity to see for himself and capture what he visualizes, are what he desires to share.
As technology changed so did Charles. Using digital camera equipment and up to date imaging software, he has expanded his imagination to new horizons. His images are fresh and alive with the same spirit that was present when he captured them. Enhancements are made to bring a focus on the subject, but do not rework the story. Images are not altered from the original capture, only enriched to bring out the detail.
Here you will find images he has personally selected to share from the collections of his most favored pictures. The ones that he feels will reproduce as excellent quality photographs, that when displayed, will convey a story. Ansel Adams once said, “there are at least two people in every photograph, the photographer and the viewer.” These are one of a kind images taken from the heart at a time when Charles was inspired by what he was seeing. Let your keen senses intrigue you to visualize with wonder and serenity that split second in time when the image was captured.
Discovering this opportunity to share his art with others on TurningArt, is one of the best things to happen with his photography to date. Such a remarkable opportunity to offer original art works to others so they might also enjoy the natural wonders and beauty of these images. Charles believes you too, will be drawn in as you enjoy viewing the remarkable wonders of his photographs as much he did while out searching the out of doors, to encounter them.
