BFOP 2020 - Charlie Brown

BFOP 2020 - Charlie Brown

September 7, 2020

While seen as decent, considerate, and reflective, he is also awkward. This is an exerpt from a bio of Charlie Brown. The Peanuts character, you know with the pet dog Snoopy? The similarities between the charater Charlie Brown and our High Country local Charlie Brown are uncanny!

Charlie is lucky enough to call High Country home and we are all very jealous that he will be one of the very few people in Bright during the Bright Festival of Photography. Charlie is all about sports and mountians, he will be taking us through his sports workshops, featuring downhill mountain bikers and then will be heading into the mountains to show us all the best spots to shoot from when we can bet back up into high country!
