His client list reads like a who’s who of photographic royalty. Robert Capa, Larry Clark, Helen Levitt, Danny Lyon and Mary Ellen Mark are just a few of the luminaries he has printed for in his thirty-year career. In addition to private student classes at his Jersey City Lab, Chuck also teaches independent-project classes at the International Center of Photography. Chuck’s photograms are represented by Sasha Wolf Projects.

Carl Saytor and his company, Luxlab, are on a mission to serve the photographic-arts community with astounding technology built on the tradition of handmade, high quality printing and processing.
