​July 2018 Monthly Program:  Charlie Coury - Posing, Lighting and Composition


About Charlie Coury...


Charlie Coury of Apple Video & Photography, has been photographing professionally for 32 years.  He started in Rhode Island in 1986 and moved to  Florida in 1992.  Starting with just video production, for two years he watched behind the scenes while other photographers created images and picked up styles and ideas and deciding what not to do.  Charlie studied and modeled for, and many times assisted, some of the most influential photographers in the world such as Hanson Fong, John Woodward, Al Gordon, David Zieser, Clay Blackmore and for five years the great Monte Zucker.  He has adopted many of the unique styles of photography used by many and incorporated them to his own style of shooting.  As a member of  BBPA, FPP and PPA, Charlie earned his FPP Florida Education Degree.  He was past President of BPPA in 2010 and 2011 and also served on the BPPA Board.
