Small Business Spotlight: The Amazing Image
Who: Charlie MacPherson
What: Photography tours, classes and one-on-one lessons
Where: Scituate, Mass.
How: MacPherson previously worked in medical sales when in 2006 he decided to branch off on his own. He has been a photographer since the 1970s, and pursued his passion after years in the sales world.
“I worked for one idiot too many, and decided if I was going to be working for an idiot, I wanted to be that idiot,” MacPherson said. “I have had a fascination with wildlife, and was better at [photography] than I thought. I decided to make it my business.”
He teaches local courses and gives tours in Massachusetts, as well as in the Artic, throughout the year.
Quote from the author: “The Arctic is fascinating, desolate, beautiful and isolated,” he said. “The first time you stand on the Arctic tundra, you will never be the same again.”
