Biography

Charles O'Rear
Charles (Chuck) O’Rear photographed for National Geographic magazine 25 years, producing more two dozen major articles ranging from computer chips to Indonesia to ultralights. He is a native of Missouri and began his career with the Kansas City Star and Los Angeles Times. He began photographing winemaking in 1978 when the magazine sent him to Napa Valley to produce an article. As a result of that project he made his home in the valley where his interest in the wine country led him to begin photographing more of the region. The interest in wine became global in 1995 when he spent a year following the wine harvest around the world photographing in all major wine producing regions.

O’Rear has produced ten wine books, including: Napa Valley: The Land, The Wine, The People (2011); Beringer’s Rhine House (2009); Wine Across America (2007); Wine Places (2005); Beautiful Wineries (2005); Napa Valley: The Land, The Wine, The People (2001); Chardonnay: Photographs from Around the World (1999); Cabernet: A Photographic Journey from Vine to Wine (1998); Fodor’s Wine Country (1995); and Napa Valley (1989).

His photos have appeared in thousands of publications around the world and are available from this website or his agent, Corbis, www.corbis.com.
