Photo of Charlie Waite

Regarded as one of this country's top landscape photographers with a worldwide reputation, his photographs are held in private and corporate collections. Charlie has lectured throughout the UK, Europe and US with solo exhibitions in places such as London, Tokyo, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, New York and California. In 2016 he was invited by the Royal Academy of Arts to exhibit in their Summer Exhbition.

Charlie is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and holds an honorary Fellowship of the British Institute of Professional Photographers. Having started out working for the BBC behind the scenes, Charlie is now frequently seen on British Television discussing the finer aspects of landscape photography. He is the owner and founder of Light & Land, the UK's leading photographic workshop and tour company which has been running tours, courses and workshops for over 29 years with the help of a select team of photographers.
In 2007 Charlie launched the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year, an international competition open to all, which ties in with Charlie's desire to share his passion and appreciation of the beauty of our surroundings through photography.
