About Charlie

His entry on Wikipedia tells us that

Charlie Waite is an English landscape photographer noted for his “painterly” approach in using light and shade.

Born in England, he worked in theatre and television for the first ten years of his professional life before moving to photography. He is noted for his square format images using a 6×6 Hasselblad and was announced as a Mentor for Olympus UK’s photographer program in their centenary year, 2019.

His awards include Honorary Fellowship of the British Institute of Professional Photography,  Best Landscape Photography’s ‘Power of Visionary Award’ and Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society in 2014.

He was invited to exhibit at the Royal Academy of Arts in summer 2015.

He has contributed and written columns for newspapers and photography magazines and presented a number of photography television series.

He has held over 30 solo exhibitions across Europe, the US, Japan and Australia and has given and continues to give tuition to amateur, professional and aspiring photographers of all ages from the UK, Australia, Europe and the US, which he hugely enjoys.

He runs a photographic tour company called Light and Land.
