Russell Charters

Born in New Zealand and surrounded by passionate photographers in the family, I became fascinated with photography at an early age using my first camera, a “Kodak Box Brownie." I remember watching my sister in the home darkroom making images appear, as if by magic, from paper and chemicals.
After adventures with all types of film cameras, from an early Yashica rangefinder camera, through to my first 35mm SLR, a Praktica Super TL and later on to an Olympus OM10, I now shoot exclusively in digital format.
My subjects have ranged widely, always looking for the unfamiliar and beautiful in even the most routine and banal subjects.
My interests are in sport, landscape and travel photography.
