Conversational And Action Portrait
I try to find the real person in my Portrait. My shooting sessions are typically an hour long. During that hour, I typically shoot 150 to 350 shots, and I will have a conversation with you in which I try to draw out the expressions and gestures that are unique to you. With young clients, I may ask them to jump, twist, and wave their arms. Sometimes I have them laugh and yell. In the end, I will have a collection of images from which you and I choose the best for a singular portrait or a series of portraits that I put together with music creating a "still video". To see examples of my still videos, check me out on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYB9GkCnh2grwtwGygv5uZw?feature=results_main
...I have had Chuck do several special projects for me and I have been extremely satisfied with the results every time. From prints to stretched canvas, the quality and timliness of his work is superb. I whole heartedly recommend this professional for your printing needs.
I've worked with Chuck off and on for quite some time. He is creative, very professional, enthusiastic and easy to work with; someone with a joy of life that is infectious. His portfolio ranges from portraiture to product; location or studio; utilitarian or artistic, and he has his own lab so everything stays "in house" making the entire production streamlined and easy to manage. If I need photos, Chuck is the first one I talk with.
A talented photographer who is easy to work with. Highly recommend him.
I am delighted to write this review for Chuck and his studio at Reel Eyes Photography. I've had Chuck work with me and print about 15 different images in color and black & white, with a variety of papers and canvas, and as large as 24 x 72". Several became prize winners, but all were winners for me! Chuck's background in Art, Photography, Photoshop, Lightroom, etc. and his sincere, constructive patience all contribute to bringing out the best in one's photography. His studio setting and equipment are excellent and very convenient as well. I very highly recommend!
Jim did some beautiful aerial photography for me. The prints are beautiful.
Chuck is a caring and great photographer who freely shares his expertise. His printing of my images was also very well executed and allowed me to capture several awards, when image detail and print were of the utmost importance. An expert in so many areas. Go see him!
Chuck photographed our family reunion and did an outstanding job with seven siblings, spouses and their children and two dogs. It was a memorable weekend on Morro Bay and Chuck captured it in an excellent way. He also did individual family groupings as well as the larger group. We will use his services again next time an opportunity comes along.
Chuck Jennings is a consummate professional and that is validated in his artistic endeavors. We have Chuck's art in our home and love how it adds to our decor. It is a pleasure to look and contemplate the thought and accomplishment that shows in Chuck's art.
Chuck takes individual and group photographs of our staff. He is flexible, accommodates all our needs, and gets the individuals in our group to "loosen up", providing really creative / fun images to view.
I've been coming to Chuck's business (formerly Giclee Printing) for a number of years, always with results exceeding expectations to the point I simply got used to it. Not only do they have state-of-the-art photo printing equipment and many different papers to choose from, but often for a special print, the process is side-by-side interactive to dial in precisely the look I'm seeking. And it doesn't hurt that Chuck is a dead-honest businessman and and seasoned photographer himself where that experience has provided helpful suggestions regarding getting the best result for my particular projects. I would recommend Chuck Jennings and ReelEyes Photography without reservation.
We went to the Grand Tetons on our road trip and took some of the best photos. ReelEyes Photography developed them in to very oversized prints. The prints were beautiful. No flaws, beautiful color and just what we wanted. I would highly recommend ReelEyes Photography to anyone who appreciates great quality. Thank you for the awesome job. Judy
That One in a Million Shot
There are a lot of photographers to choose from out there. Unfortunately, not all of them are capable of achieving that one in a million shot. That shot that makes you or your client look good. Chuck Jennings is one of those photographers that doesn’t rely on a band aid fix with PhotoShop like the greater majority of photographers. He strives on each assignment to get that one in a million shot. And he isn’t satisfied until he achieves it. If you have a project that demands critically fantastic results, challenge Chuck Jennings. I assure you that the results he achieves will raise your standard of what’s possible.

A Long History
I’ve worked with Chuck Jennings for 30 years on a wide variety of photographic and graphic design projects. They range from very large, national-scale projects involving hundreds of thousands of dollars and millions of viewers, to small-scale jobs involving my own art. Nothing leaves his shop unless it’s flawless. He has the eyes and judgment of a fine artist and the skills, intelligence, patience and knowledge of the finest photographer and photographic technician. To top it off he is scrupulously honest, exceedingly hardworking, funny and incredibly easy to get along with – even under tight deadlines and pressures that would make others fold. I’ve worked with major theaters and museums across the United States and in the course of business have worked with scores of photographers, graphic designers and photographic technicians. Since meeting Chuck, whenever the choice was mine to make, I’ve worked with no one else. Why would I?
Chuck Jennings at ReelEyes Photography
Mr. Jennings is a true professional. For our 50th wedding anniversary, we commissioned Chuck to do a special audiovisual presentation to display at our 50th party. He took many of the photos we had over many years and put them in a video with a story board that was accented with music from the times. He then recommended we try another venue additional that would be appended to the show. He put my wife, Margo and me on stools and asked us questions. He then recorded on camera our reactions to the questions on camera without sound. This created some amazing shots that depicted our reactions. It made for a very stimulating presentation that was enjoyed by all. He made three copies and put them on a loop that played on three different large TV sets. Total success. Chuck is very innovative professional: a retired professor from Cal Poly, an artist with one of his works on display at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., a past president of the Porsche Club, the editor of our Porsche magazine, an airplane pilot and lover of planes, and a supporter up coming artists and illustrators. If anyone is in need of a creative professional in the world of art and unique productions, he is the go to guy. G. Russell Zink San Luis Obispo
A delight to work with.
Never having made prints of my paintings before, I was fortunate to find Chuck. His artistic knowledge, technical experience, and patience with my many questions, made the experience a pleasure. And his sensitivity to detail and color resulted in beautiful prints.
Chuck printed fifteen digitally composed art pieces for a show I had last year, and I was delighted with the results. In addition, he answered my questions so I was able to make the best decisions regarding paper, print size, and color. He combines technical knowledge with an artist’s eye.
Unbelievable to work with through and through!!!!
aaahhhh Chuck... has completely exceeded my expectations with each and every project. I couldn’t be happier with the images! His photos and giclees from said are immaculate. (I'm a professional oil painter.) Even if you cannot speak his lingo (and are not a "techie") he can get you where you need to be and does so with aplomb. He tackles all with great input and energy into ensure every aspect of my overall objectives have been met. He has wonderful creative vision and a breeze to work with. He has assisted in producing invitations and such for events as well. I highly recommend him and will continue to use him on all my future projects and endeavors. Have I said he's a joy to work with... and if you need spectacularly magnificent family/couple photos or a shoot for your children etc ask him to show you the "moving shots" he has taken of his grandchildren. They are put to music. They capture the essence of them in the most beautiful manner. go go go and you will never look back...
Very high quality photography at a reasonable price. Friendly and accommodating to his customers. Has a very interesting studio that everyone should see.
