After over 20 years of military service, I was beginning to wonder what the next chapter of my life would entail. Would I start another high-demand career that keeps me away from home more than I should be? Would it be just a 9 to 5 grind to make up the difference in the loss of pay? I spent many hours and sleepless nights contemplating, "what's next?"
Luckily, a very good friend of mine started asking me to fly his drone for his videos and eventually, videoing his performances. This must have struck a creative chord in me, because I became obsessed with learning everything I could about videography and cinematography. That lead to the creation of Point Blank Videography, which has evolved to Chip St. Charles Cinematography, and the steady upgrade and purchasing of better equipment.
My passion has grown into weddings, which have recently become the focus of my work. This is when I rebranded to Chip St. Charles Cinematography. My vision is dedicated to capturing the beauty, elegance, and love when two lives intertwine to become one family. A wedding has all of the great components of a film with the actors and actresses, hair and makeup, wardrobe, script and improv, and beautiful settings. I love nothing more than being chosen to capture all of this and create a memorable film of cherished memories that can be kept and shared with friends and family.
