Charlie Waite is firmly established as one of the world's leading Landscape photographers. His photographic style is often considered to be unique, in that his photographs convey an almost spiritual quality of serenity and calm. Waite's photographs are held in private and corporate collections throughout the world, and he has held numerous solo exhibitions at prestigious venues in the UK, Japan and the USA.
With over 30 books to his name, Waite's distinctive images are recognised around the world and his work has reveived wide critical acclaim over many years. A recent article in the Royal West of England Academy of Art Magazine featuring Waite's work commented 'Waite's landscapes are rare perfections of light, colour, and composition, and offer the viewer a luxuriant portrait of a planet at peace.'
In 2000 Waite was awarded the prestigious honorary fellowship to the British Institute of Professional Photographers. He is also a sought after writer, public speaker and television presenter, and has featured in numerous photographic and broadsheet publications, DVDs and television programmes on photography.
Through his teaching company Light & Land he continues to encourage lovers of photography to seek the enormous enrichment that can be found by engaging with the landscape, with the camera acting as a conduit and a device to express the individual's response to their world around them. Waite particularly enjoys working with younger people as their uncluttered view of the world can bring some remarkable imagery.
