The Collective Force




At only fifteen years old Charles began shooting and processing black and white skateboarding imagery. Inspired by Mann Ray he moved into shooting nudes which led to his gaining a scholarship and embarked on a 4 year degree at Elam School of Fine Arts, during which he took a year to travel through Europe, USA and Japan.

Upon his return to NZ in 2005 Charles started shooting in his own right and has firmly established himself as one of the top fashion and beauty photographers in the country, in addition to having worked on many international advertising brands shooting in New Zealand, New York, Detroit, LA and Sydney. 

White Studios, Charles’ own studio complex, was opened in 2007 and is now the busiest and most popular studio facility in the country.
