“The Mug Lady” off on another adventure!
Who is Charlene Meyers?
Originally from Pennsylvania, I am the retired owner of a successful catering firm, mother of four, grandmother of three, and I have three great grandchildren. My first visit to Hawaii was in 1975 and it was love at first sight. In 2001 my husband Amos and I moved to the Big Island of Hawaii.
My love of photography grew along with the time I now had to enjoy the beauty of Hawaii, its people and culture. My hobby has grown into a business of sharing the beauty of Hawaii.
I currently volunteer for many community events. I am Past President of the Rotary Club of Volcano and was Assistant District Governor for East Hawaii for three years. I am a member of the Rotary Club of Hilo and currently District 5000’s Polio Plus Chair. Amos and I received the Rotary Volunteer of the Year Award for 2003.
I have put in over 6500 hours as a Volunteer Ranger at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park beginning in January 2002. I lead hikes into lava tubes, Kilauea Caldera, Kilauea Iki Crater and other trails. I also assist visitors at the visitors’ center.
What photo equipment does Charlene Meyers use?
I currently use a Canon Digital 70D capturing photos at high resolution. I use a Canon Rebel T3i as a backup. The quality is so fantastic that we guarantee it. The lenses I currently use are Canon plus one Tamron that I have had for many years.
Where has Charlene’s work appeared?
My images have been featured in many places including the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. My lava photographs accompanied a feature article in Odyssey Magazine (December 2004). I captured a glorious shot from the summit of Maunakea that appeared in the Gallery section of Sky & Tel Magazine (May 2005). My picture of world-renowned volcanologist and astronomer Stephen James O’Meara was chosen for his inaugural column in Astronomy Magazine (March 2007). Additionally, I shot full spreads on commission for VolksWorld Magazine (June 2004) and Hot VWs Magazine (November 2004).
You can find Charlene’s work for sale in many local Hawaiian gift shops, coffee shops, hotels, museums and at Volcano Art Center.
