Chuck Fadely, photojournalist

Chuck Fadely
Look around.  These days it seems like everyone has a video camera.

But having a video camera - no matter how expensive - doesn't mean you can actually shoot video.

Only a few can.

The Miami Herald's Chuck Fadely is one of those few.

He's been at the paper for almost 30 years.

He tells me he started shooting more video and fewer "still" images back in 2005.

Chuck reports that his video skills are mostly self-taught but that he has attended a few workshops.

He occasionally shoots print assignments for the paper, but estimates the ratio is now 10% stills to 90% video.

Chuck says he uses a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon XF305.

Today, Chuck posted a compilation of some of his recent work. (Don't try this at home unless you're a pro!)

Good stuff, Chuck!

  1. Wow, thanks so much for posting Chuck's work, Bill Cooke. I loved seeing it all and I hope everyone will have a look at this lively excellent work by Chuck. He was always a wonderful still photographer, a very smart hard working photographer, but like you said, not everyone who shoots stills
    can shoot video and Chuck has mastered this in an exceptional manner.
    Bravo for Chuck!!! Maggie Stebe
