Charlie Downes is a freelance photographer and actor based in Weston Super Mare. He is able to cover the whole of the south of England from Gloucester and Wiltshire down as far as Dorset, Devon and Cornwall and Hampshire/Isle of Wight.

His interest in photography began at an early age when he used to watch his mother take snapshots with her old Kodak camera.

Charlie’s areas of special photographic interest lie in the performing arts, photographing actors, singers, models, presenters, photographing headshots and general shots for portfolios and publicity not forgetting capturing actual performances. He is also keen on photographing family portraits and memorable family events such as birthdays, weddings and engagements. 

Between 2009 and 2010 Charlie and his wife Sue took a sabbatical and spent time in Crete where he worked as a freelance photographer, covering weddings, baptisms, children's parties, tourist cultural events and local village events. Some of his work was published in local newspapers.

Charlie looks forward to working with you to produce memorable images.
