"The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box."
— Henri Cartier Bresson
One-day, six-hour class.
Charles Lavoie is BkC's top photo instructor. Having specialized in editorial, architectural, and product photography, he has also been a photography instructor, teacher and tutor to over 1000 students in the New York City area since 2006.
Charles received his BFA from Detroit’s College For Creative Studies in 2004 and has been steadily shooting ever since - landscapes, portraits, street photography, still life - a true shutterbug who is happiest whenever he has a camera in his hands. At the heart of both his teaching and shooting is the core belief that photography is truly half art and half science; technical control is nothing without artistic ability and vice-versa.
