Charlie is an independent photographer based in London specialising in food and drink (food lifestyle and healthy-living lifestyle work), shooting for a range of editorial, pr and marketing, packaging and advertising clients. Charlie works in both the UK and abroad.

After being shown transparencies at a young age of his dad’s travels in the 1960’s through India and Afghanistan, Charlie developed a fascination in photography.

Those images fuelled his interest in travel, foreign culture, language and cuisine which ultimately led to him pursuing a Masters in Biological Photography in 2003, and then immediately on to work with a wide range of still-life and food photographers. A couple of years later he became an independent photographer specialising in food and drink.

Charlie works for a range of editorial, pr and marketing, packaging and advertising clients in both the UK and abroad, shooting a mixture of daylight, flash and constant lighting, to produce clean, crisp, fresh and naturally lit images. He’s also equally as comfortable shooting on location, working quickly in technically demanding situations.

His continuing interest in the environment has led to Charlie pursuing personal projects on food production and the positive and negative impacts it has on local habitats and ecosystems.

An A3 printed portfolio and iPad portfolio are both available on request.
