Chuck Black Photography

Welcome to my blog.  I am a general surgeon who learned that I need an outlet for my creative energy as an escape from the stress of my work.  Several years ago I began to pursue photography as a hobby and latter as a business.

What I have learned is that to have a true expereince of life, we must wake up, embrace that things that are meaningful to us and come alive.  Taking the time to stop and view the world throught the lens of a camera has helped me to do just that, to come alive.  Not just in my creative sideline, but in my personal and professional life as well.

For decades my career as a surgeon has focused on keeping people live, only more recently I have come to see that life needs to be about more than not being dead, it needs to be about coming alive.  I hope that the images and words you find here will help inspire and motivate you to make the most of the life that you have.

Think of a tree. A beautiful and majestic creature, the tree knows that its purpose in life is to grow tall and bear fruit. It strives to do just that with total commitment. Humans are very different. Our growth is of the mind and soul. We are capable of much more than a tree, but there lies the paradox. A child can grow to be an NBA star, artist,...
