California High School Senior Portrait Photography
Photographer, Charleton Churchill

I have been working with high school students for a long time and photographing seniors is top on my list. It is always an adventure when I’m out photographing soon-to-be graduates because the ones that contact me for photographs do not want cookie cutter senior portrait photos; they are looking for something with style and fashion, something that looks cool. One of the writers for a well-known photographic magazine, Rangefinder Magazine, interviewed me about my senior photography work, and told me on the phone, “many people say their high school senior photos look cool, but when I see your high school senior photography, your seniors really do display cool.” I believe with a little direction, a senior can look cool and fashionable.

With Morgan, a senior at Amador High School, and her beautiful horse, we captured not only the cool, but also the sweet and hardworking girl she is to her friends and family. One of the many great features about Morgan, besides being Miss Amador, is that she has been selected as the highest ranking graduate of her class, the role of Valedictorian. Congratulations to Morgan and her hard work. Here are some images from her senior session.

Charleton Churchill Photography published in Rangefinder Magazine

So, if you haven’t heard the news, Rangefinder magazine published my work this month in their August 2013 “Back to School” issue.  For those of you who don’t know, Rangefinder magazine is a photographer’s magazine, which is like a mecca magazine for photographers. I have seen many great photographers interviewed and featured in their work since I first subscribed early on as a photographer.  And to be featured in their publication is quite a privilege.

When I received a random phone call from a Libby from New York, stating she was from Rangefinder magazine and wanted to feature my work, my gut kind of twisted.  I had photographed a wedding in Sacramento on the Saturday before the phone call, and one of the bridesmaid for that wedding whom I met was the senior editor for the magazine, Lindsay Comstock.  That wedding was a Saturday.  Monday is when I received the phone call, so I thought Lindsay had talked to someone. Come to find out, Lindsay hadn’t even returned to NY yet.  Libby hadn’t talked to Lindsay and she had found my work online randomly.  Regardless of how weird that was, I was honored, so thank you Rangefinder.
