“Gardens throughout the World”

Speaker: Charles Needle, Photographer
Nature Photography
Open to Guests

Charles Needle is a highly acclaimed fine art and editorial nature photographer and writer with a unique eye for design and artistic interpretation. The photographer's sensitive eye is drawn to line, shape, texture and color, all of which work together to create a visually pleasing photograph and encourage viewers to look deeper beyond what is apparent to discover the true inner "light" within each subject.

His images evoke a spiritual, almost meditative, quality which draws viewers into the essence of each form. Charles is deeply aware of the inherent order in all of nature, and he aims to capture this order by portraying each subject's inner beauty from even the smallest of details. Charles is especially interested in how nature photography itself can be a "meditative practice" and therapeutic tool. Today, Charles' award-winning fine art nature photographs are on permanent display in numerous homes, hospitals, and offices nationwide.
