Copyright Chuck Place Photography
Our organization has worked with Chuck for several years. He has photographed dozens of restaurants and food items for our publication. Each time we receive a new set of photos, we're delighted by his consistency to produce clean, creative, and most importantly, tasty images. Chuck is also great about communication and is open to ideas about assignments. It can be tough for an artist to balance creativity and client needs, but Chuck does both professionally with speed, enthusiasm, and keen attention to detail.

Chuck's attention to detail, interesting point of view and easy collaborative manner make him the go-to person for a wide range of subject matter. From our local SEASONS magazine to SUNSET magazine he can cover stories of lifestyle related to food, surf fishing, the wine industry. You name it, he can cover it. As a Creative Director, I know that I will always be pleased when I hire him to shoot a story for us. He consistently comes back with beautiful material rich in color, shot perfectly for the assignment. Tracy Smith

Chuck Place's photography makes my mouth water! Food! Wine! Restaurants! At Sunset we said photography should make you want to be there, and Chuck's images do that and more, with great color, great composition, and an obvious knowledge of the Central Coast food and wine territory. If you're in that biz, or your clients are, you need to call Chuck.
