AJ Chodora began his life behind the camera before he could drive a car. A Chicago boy who, with his friends, produced music and lifestyle content for a weekly show on public access. This “after school hobby” served as a catalyst to form a youth media program under the tutelage of the late Tom Sullivan for Rail 3 Productions.
AJ attended the Illinois Center for Broadcasting and quickly began his 13 year journey in the television news, working in markets from Tennessee to Chicago. As Chief Photographer for Time Warner Cable News in Charlotte, AJ has been on countless high profile stories from both National Conventions on the campaign trail, to following the Panthers to the Super Bowl.
If AJ isn’t behind the camera telling your story, he can usually be found on Lake Norman kayaking, or at the nearest Charlotte music venue feeding his obsession for live music. AJ also pushes the limits in his quest to create the ultimate Bloody Mary.
