Born in Willow Street, Pennsylvania in the USA, Chuck Bradley has established an impressive reputation as an artistic and commercial photographer in Australia over the past years.
A resident of Scotland Island north of Sydney, his arresting artistic work has taken precedence during the past three years and it has been acclaimed by crowds and critics alike.
His appointment as “Artist in Residence” at the Bradman Museum and International Cricket Hall of Fame at Bowral followed comparable engagements at the Manly Regional Art Gallery and Museum and the Manly Ocean Sanctuary.
The Manly Regional Art Gallery and Museum staged his solo exhibition “Nostalgica” – and indeed acquired two images for its collection – and Manly Arts Festival facilitated his solo installation, “Life Aquatic” which had its genesis at the Manly Sea Life Ocean Sanctuary.
He has also enjoyed success and won prizes at Group shows, in Sydney, Melbourne and at the Tweed River Regional Art Gallery for his magical “Life Aquatic” series, and wet plate collodion work in recent times.
Living on Pittwater at Scotland Island with his wife Marijo, Chuck commutes by tinny and revels in daily sightings of aquatic life. And when not on the water and seeking new subjects to photograph he is centre stage as drummer with his blues band Sly Dogs.
Well known for his love of Polaroid – he has three transfers in the Polaroid collection in Cambridge, MA. Chuck’s work also resides in other collections both here and overseas.
In the past few years, his commerial work has been in demand amongst clients including, DeLonghi. Optus, IBM, American Express, Qantas, Bunderberg Rum, Jim Beam, Telstra, Commonwealth Bank, and Tooheys.
