Charlotte Photographer - Lenn Long


My photography experience dates all the way back to high school. I attended the Career Center, a vocational, technical and trade school located in Winston-Salem.  There I studied graphic design, printing, and photography.  After school, I also worked at One Hour Photo in Hanes Mall.

After graduating high school, I attended and got my Associate's in Photography from Chowan College in Murfreesboro, NC.  My photographic work was focused mainly on landscape photography and the serenity of the rural farmlands and coastal landscapes of eastern North Carolina and the tidewater areas of southeastern Virginia. 

I went on to study and graduate with my Bachelor's of Fine Art in Photography at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.


After graduation, I started working with a little known glamour and boudoir portrait photography studio called Glamour Shots. At the time, Glamour Shots at Eastland Mall was a small locally owned retail photo business. Our studio was only the eighth studio in the United States, but after a half of a decade, the small company had expanded to 350 studios worldwide. 

Over a half decade, and way too many meals in mall food court, I gave up the life of big hair and feather boas for a job selling camera equipment at one of the southeast's leading camera stores, Charlotte Camera. About the same time of my employment, Al Gore invented the internet and the owner decided that it would be my job to put all the cameras on this thing called the world wide web and get people buy them. (insert dial tone and "You've Got Mail" sound effect).... 


In 1997 I opened my first portrait studio in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood near uptown Charlotte.  For over a decade I had studios located in the Plaza Midwood area and then in 2010 the studio moved to the Dilworth neighborhood where it still is today. 


As one of the top Charlotte portrait and corporate event photographers, I handle clients of all types and sizes.  I offer in-studio portraits for individuals as well as travel on-location where we can set up and photograph an entire office of employees.  I also travel the state shooting corporate events that are used in all types of media including company websites, annual reports and corporate social media.  

So what can I do for you??
