We first met Charlie through our mutual friend, Isabelle Poloner, who we also had the pleasure of collaborating with. Isabelle showed us his Instagram, @charlum, and from there, we just fell in love with his work. Charlie has an incredible eye, where he manages to capture color, detail, and personality in every single photo. He may be young at just eighteen years old, but his skills are just phenomenal and truly represent his hard work and dedication.
Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, Charlie has lived all over the world, spending time in New York, San Fransisco, and even London. At the moment, Charlie attends the Brien McMahon High School in Connecticut and next year he hopes to study in Parsons School of Design or New York University where he will major in photography. Charlie says that he gets most of his inspiration by looking at dozens of magazines, reading editorials, and seeing random sights on the street such as nature, buildings, or even fashion. Charlie's biggest dream is to one-day shoot campaigns and editorials for big brands, while his biggest nightmare is having to give up photography and hang up his camera. In ten years from now, Charlie sees himself living in New York City supporting himself doing what he loves most and hopefully living his dream.
Every photo shoot with Charlie is always exciting, and he never fails at making his subject feel comfortable in front of the camera. We love seeing the creative ways he frames his photos, and we absolutely love all of his final products. That being said, we really can’t wait to see what his future holds.
