Charlie is an award-winning independent photographer specialising in food, food-lifestyle and food and drink, shooting for a range of editorial, PR, marketing, packaging, design and advertising clients in the UK and abroad.

With a strong interest in travel, foreign culture, language and cuisine, Charlie works for a wide range of clients, 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 following his Masters in Biological Photography has led to Charlie pursuing personal projects on food sustainability, food production and the positive and negative impacts it has on local habitats, ecosystems and climate change.

An A3 printed portfolio / iPad Pro digital portfolio / sample portfolio PDF via email are all available on request.
