I AM STARTING TO SETUP 2016 PHOTOSHOOTS. THIS WILL BE A VERY LIMITED AMOUNT OF SHOOTS BECAUSE OF MY HECTIC SCHEDULE AND PRIOR COMMITTEMENTS TO VARIOUS CLIENTS.
My name is Charles, Sr. I have many titles that I answer to, on this site I am a freelance photographer that is currently working on a number of projects. These projects include but are not limited to the following: private photo/gallery showings, calenders, tabletop books, exhibits, fashion shows (very limited ones), body parts, swimwear, editorials, underwear, high fashion (limited), advertising/campaigns, collaborations with models for their profolios, and with some SELECTED models; edgy shots, body paint, artistic, etc. Also note that FITNESS MODELS are priority shoots for me at this time.. AND PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT TAKE FULL FRONTAL NUDITY SHOTS. Be as professional as you can, your demeanor will carry you far. KEEP THE BULLSHIT AT HOME.
Because I am a Semi-pro basketball coach here in Los Angeles, I lend toward the fitness models more than any one group. I am bias only for the priority standpoint, that fitness models receive the first priority. Otherwise, I will work with anybody to help better themselves. So, if you see the names Coach, Pops, etc. that is because I have various relationships with the models I shoot at many levels of respect. I do not take pictures for a living. I am retired from a wonderful government job. (FYI)
I am doing some TFCD's for a select group of models that can show me that they are serious about trying to make it in this industry and/or that have, what they call, marketable looks and/or talents. A limited amount of models are being choosen from outside of California/Internationally to come out West for shoots during 2014. All expenses paid. These will be very select models with tons of potential; (marketability, appearance, communication skills, and flexibility). I DO NOT, HAVE NOT, and WILL NOT pay models to shoot them. If you're choosen than it will be on your merit to be marketable in this field.
NOTE: I GIVE YOU YOUR PICTURES ON CD"s AND THE NEGATIVES OF ALL SHOTS TAKEN, FOR A REASON; THAT BEING, TO DO WHAT YOU WANT WITH THEM. FOR YOU TO KEEP AND HAVE AT YOUR DISPOSAL. THEY ARE THE ONLY SET OF NEGATIVES, SO DON'T MISPLACE/LOSE THEM. I AM SLOWLY CONVERTING TO SHOOTING WITH MY NEW DIGITAL CAMERAS, THEREFORE NEGATIVES WON'T BE GIVEN WHEN I CONVERT OVER, JUST CD'S. YOU WILL ALSO BE GIVEN A TOUR OF VENICE BEACH, HOLLYWOOD BLVD., GRIFFIN PARK, and any other landmark that time allows.
If you are interested in having a photo shoot with me or want some advice or opinions on a subject relating to the business/industry or just want more information about myself or why I do what I do, please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail at:
Inbox me directly on here for my private email address and/or private number.
I will answer all inquires as soon as possible. My plan for 2014 is to also get as many of the models I shoot, as much paid work as they can handle and if possible get them signed with an honest agency. It is a very hard job because the competition is so great. I am also looking to place some models in a position to take charge of some of my many responsibilities and/or to setup their own business.
Please; ONLY THE SERIOUS RESPOND TO MY INVITATIONS:::::::

"Words can't express how much I love Charles J Lovely! He's more than a photographer to me... He's a father figure and genuine person. He's more than a friend, he family."
I have shot so many great models that I want to thank all of them. As for the out-of-state models that have visited, 99.9% were great to work with and to be around. It was a pleasure hosting you and giving you the tours and other experiences as well. For those who chose to tackle our famous Sand Dunes, for some workouts, I will schedule that in as well.
