Meet Our Team
Born and raised on the family farm in Earls Barton (where our studio is located today), Charlie developed a keen interest in photography in his late teens. At that time, he was working in the shoe industry at Barker Shoes (started by his great grandfather) and used photography to record new shoe designs in Italy. Having mastered his craft, he went professional back in 1985 and hasn’t looked back since. Ask him what he loves photographing best and he will probably tell you aerial views from a helicopter, cars and food - quite an eclectic mix!
But Charlie's talents are not confined to the camera, he is also the creator of Pip Ahoy! a delightful pre-school children's animation that is voiced by Sir David Jason OBE and currently being shown on TV.
By the way - you can call him Charles, but most of his friends know him as 'Charlie'

Kim has recently returned from living in the Middle East to rejoin the team at CWP as Charlie's assistant and stylist.
Lauren first came to work for us 14 years ago as part of the school work experience scheme and we have kept in touch with ever since. For the past six years Lauren has been travelling the world celebrities as Benedict Cumberbatch, Adele, Ant & Dec, Cara Delevingne and even the boys from One Direction. Lauren is also a real fan of shoes (classic Doc Martens being her favourite), so she is always keen to help out when shoes arrive for photography.
