Charles A. Thomas Photography

Both in wilderness and in urban areas, I travel frequently and for extended periods of time; in the past decade I've lived for years each in eastern Europe, the remote North Pacific, home in the United States, and I am currently based out of India. Cameras and film are constant companions.

The natural world, and particularly the wilderness landscape, is my main photographic focus, wherever it can be found. I have spent several summers backpacking and mountaineering in the Sierras, the Central Cascades, and the Talkeetna and Alaska ranges, and still jump at almost any opportunity to spend significant time outdoors; these trips have solidified my interest in the experience of being in remote, wild lands, as well as admiration for the creatures who inhabit them.

While I use a wide variety of photographic equipment, I most often employ large format Nikkor lenses on 4x5 and 8x10 field cameras, the Hasselblad V system, and Nikon digital. My most frequently used color films in all formats are Fuji Velvia 50, Fuji Provia 100F, and Kodak Ektar 100. My black and white work is almost exclusively with Ilford films.

A number of galleries in the past several years have shown my photographs, in exhibitions in New York City, Los Angeles, throughout Texas, and the Washington, D.C. metro area.

My images here are all available as prints, however most are in limited editions of 5 or less. Prints are made with archival Hahnemuhle and Ilford papers that are meant to last hundreds of years. Many of my black and white photographs are printed in a traditional wet darkroom on silver gelatin papers. Each print is signed and numbered on the reverse.
