Charlotte Stremler

I am an accomplished photographer who can manage all aspects of the creative process. I am an energetic people-person and a creative thinker who enjoys developing strategic plans that will bring projects to completion. I have experience with designing photography sets and lighting, interactive media, social media as well as with designing music packaging and marketing materials.

Visual communications has always been a big part of my professional activities. I have spent much of the past 17 years working either with or as a professional photographer, including owning my own studio in Franklin, TN. My experience includes working in commercial, portrait and adventure photography. I have experience in designing and setting up photography sets as well as setting up the lighting for those sets. I have experience in setting up on-location photography shoots of people as well as products. I am experienced at using digital and film formats as well as medium and 35mm camera systems. I am also proficient on Macintosh Computers and with many types of photography software.

I have significant experience with using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign to create and mold words and photographs into pieces of creative media that help my clients deliver their messages to their target audiences. My extensive photography experience established a strong foundation for my graphic design career because it honed my sense of good visual layout and developed my expertise with Adobe Software. I also have experience using Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Flash, and Avid Audio/Video editing software in several of my past projects.
My photography experience also includes working in the fast-paced world of music business as a free-lance photographer for Country Music Television on sets of shows, special events, concerts and live events. This experience and my education at Belmont University led me to the field of graphic design. For the past three years I have also been working as a free-lance designer in the Franklin community creating advertisements, websites, signs, brochures, and programs for companies such as Health Connect America, Achieve Learning, and Clearview Windows, as well as pro-bono for the East Williamson Athletics Association.
