Hello, I am Chuck Wagner, the owner and author of AChucksEyeView and here is a little bit about me.
First and foremost, I am an electrician, NOT a professional photographer or cook or artist or anything else like that. The only thing I consider myself a professional at is “Being Me”. “Being Me” involves a whole range of activities, ideas and personal opinions. As for the things I do other than photography, that list is long. Some of those activities I am good at and the others, well they need improvement. However, I am always about findings something new to try.
About my family, it consists of 3 amazing adult children, 1 grandson and my buddy and pal Eddie (my Dog). In addition, I have 6 brothers and 6 sisters. Yes, my parents had 13 of us, and I am actually #12 in the list.
About my equipment:
- Camera – Canon EOS R
- Canon EF/EFS to RF mount adapter
- Tamron 150-600 mm G2 lens
- 24-105 mm Canon RF lens
- 10-18 mm Canon EFS lens
- Rokinon 14 mm f2.8 wide angle lens
- Tamron 2x Teleconverter
- 8″ Reflector Telescope, tripod, camera mount and tracking system
- Assorted miscellaneous things (tripod, shutter release, etc)
- Adobe LightRoom and Photoshop for all my processing needs.
My most recent purchases are a Canon EOS R camera body, 24-105 mm RF lens and a Tamron 150-600 mm G2 lens.
A big thanks to Sarah for the idea for the website name, to Dennis for starting me in this awesome hobby, and my team of eye surgeons that made sure I could enjoy what I see.
Lastly, it is my hope that I will find other photographers that I can highlight on this site to show their work and have them explain how they did it so others can learn.
