Born in Michigan but raised in Southern California, Chuck moved across the country in early 2022 to settle in South Carolina, joining Laudisi that summer as one of our Photo Specialists. He brings with him over 40 years of printing and retouching experience, utilizing his skills and talents to photograph and process our on-site product photos for Smokingpipes. A calm, good-natured presence, Chuck has enjoyed a lifelong love of photography — particularly sports, landscape, and nature photography — and is glad to combine his passion with his career. When not in the office, he spends his time on his own photography projects, including weekend shoots at track and field and cross country meets, while also avidly following Formula 1 and MotoGP races.
