NC Medical Board Head Shots

"Our organization had a great experience working with Charles Dickens Photography. Mr. Dickens came on site to shoot several professional head shots of our Board Members and senior staff. He worked efficiently around a busy meeting schedule and was professional and pleasant to work with. Mr. Dickens was careful to determine how our organization intended to use the head shots to ensure that his work met our needs. The result was a set of well-lit, consistently shot photographs that look great on our website and in our publications. In particular, Mr. Dickens’ retouching work was top notch!"

Fantastic Head Shots

“If you are in search of a talented photographer, please contact Charlie Dickens at Charles Dickens Photography. His work is amazing and you won’t work with a nicer guy! I am not a real fan of having my picture taken and was nervous prior to our scheduled appointment. Charlie immediately put me at ease so that I would be relaxed for my pictures. The pictures turned out fantastic. We have used Charles Dickens Photography for head shots and professional business portraits as well as listing and marketing photographs for properties. Charlie’s pricing is very reasonable and his quality of work is exemplary.”

Volunteer Work

“Excellent photographer for headshots and events. For the last 6 years, Charlie has volunteered his time to take photographs for Comfort Zone camp, a free bereavement camp for NC children, who have lost a mom, dad or sibling. He also takes photos at the CZC Golf Classic, our largest fundraiser. Not only is the quality of his work outstanding, he is a person of great character who gives back to his community. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a professional photographer.”

50+ Head Shots for Church Staff

"Charlie is tremendous to work with. I recently needed 50+ head shots for our corporate website. We needed a “natural” lighting look and Charlie accomplished that beautifully. He can adapt to whatever look and touch up you are going for. I’ve used Charlie many times over the last few years and wholly recommend him for his quality and pricing."

Settled My Nerves

“Fabulous! Charlie settled my nerves during my photo session allowing me to feel more relaxed; the results were beyond what I had expected. Wonderful experience.”

Awesome Experience!

“Awesome Experience! Charles took time to discuss my needs, and the over all goal of the head shots. Inquiring about the type of job(s) I would be seeking, we opted for the three poses (which is an awesome deal) in order to cater to different scenarios. He keeps you informed as to the process and fast turn around time! Highly recommend!”
