Charlie Lai: Capturing a Moment in Time

In his off time, Charlie Lai, EVP and CIO at Fairwinds Credit Union, is a freelance photographer. He specializes in sports, aviation and travel photography, and attends dozens of air shows around Florida each year.


"It's a lot like what I do at work," Lai says of his second career. "It's trying to capture a moment that someone will find interesting. When it comes to what we do at Fairwinds, it's about doing something that's interesting for the member."


Lai also enjoys the opportunity to travel that his photography affords him. Last year he photographed in Hawaii and Yellow Stone National Park. -- Jon Camhi
