Chas Glatzer


Charles Glatzer, a world-renowned wildlife photographer, brought The Heat Company to the US. With a mission to bring his favorite high-quality photography gloves to a North American audience, Chas combines his photography expertise with a passion for superior gear. Chas can be found on the river fly fishing near his home in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina when not behind the camera.


As a Canon Explorer of Light, Chas is part of an exclusive group of photographers. He established his company, Shoot The Light , in the mid-nineties and quickly rose to prominence as a leading wildlife photographer and educator. Chas's 40-year career is a testament to his versatility and depth of knowledge, spanning various genres, including portraits, weddings, advertising, product photography, editorial reportage, professional sports, and even underwater photography. His dedication and expertise in the field are further underscored by his Master of Photography degree.
