Charles and Mary Love—award-winning photographers, writers, filmmakers and magazine editors—are partners in Imagyn Media, a company that promotes individuals, businesses and destinations worldwide. Clients have included leading companies in the hospitality and performing arts industries, public relations agencies, national tourism organizations of many countries, and national and regional magazines.
Their adventures have been varied— and often supercharged. They’ve been surrounded by sharks in the Red Sea while scuba diving; challenged to a marksmanship contest by AK-47 toting bedouins in Yemen; and cornered by rogue elephants in Zambia.
The Loves’ editorial work has been featured in many publications, including The New Yorker, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, Southern Living, Details, Dance Magazine, Charleston Style & Design and Boca Raton magazine.
In addition, they are concerned about issues that affect the well-being of the planet, especially civil rights, U.S. electoral system reform, and protection of our environment. Accordingly, their personal work includes editorials and documentary films addressing these issues.
The couple’s photography has been exhibited in galleries from New York to Florida and their photography essays have won top honors in the Society of American Travel Writers competitions. Additionally, their films have been Official Selections in film festivals both in the U.S. and abroad.
Their 4-volume set of photography books representing work over three decades will include: Horizons (destinations worldwide), Contours (figure studies of performing artists), Meditations (still life and conceptual images), and Sacred Places (sites around the world of worship, meditation, and ritual).
Professional associations include the Society of American Travel Writers and the American Society of Media Photographers.
Charles, after serving as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, became a graduate of the Harvard Business School and Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. Mary is a graduate of Vassar College, the Columbia Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and Columbia Business School.
They are now based in Charlotte, North Carolina.
