Biography
  • Charles Boyles was born in 1888 in Merino, N.W. Victoria. He made it his business to be wherever sporting action was going on and as the VFL and Association had no permanent official photographer, became the "unofficial official" VFL photographer. As well as capturing every team and taking portraits and full length photos of the heroes of the day, he also photographed other sporting teams including soccer. Charles Boyles realised very early the appeal of a photograph to people having an outing, and set up a portable studio at St Kilda, with the help of his son he took portraits and printed them for 3d a photo. With the arrival of the American forces in World War II, Charles travelled far and wide photographing American servicemen anxious to have a photograph to send back home. One of his frequent visits was to Ballarat where the Marines were camped, photographing their impromptu baseball games. Charles Boyles died in 1971.
