“Never lose your sense of wonder” is the ambitious philosophy that defines the art of Charlie Burgio.
A path that begins from the essence of beauty and the love of art, a direct and immediate transposition of various languages that flow into photography. Light, flair, and the desire to amaze are the key ingredients of an ingenious evolution, constantly looking for new expressive models through the art of photography.
For fourteen years, Charlie has built a reputation for his innate ability to translate ideas into extraordinary images. Exploring the latest techniques and carrying out extensive research has made his work bold and original, allowing him to specialize in a sweeping array of photography styles ranging from commercial to artistic. CB Photography boasts an ever-growing, diverse clientele, from artists and entrepreneurs to businesses and brands. Charlie's work constantly raises the quality bar and aspires to offer his clients an exceptional product. His extensive experience in the event industry has opened the doors to the most prestigious venues in London, such as the Royal Premises of St. James's Palace, the Natural History Museum, The Royal Albert Hall, the Ritz Hotel and the O2 Arena among others.
Flanked by his team of image experts, Charlie produced numerous creative projects mixing photography with set design, fashion, makeup and video. His trademark is the light, which he uses in an almost pictorial manner, defining ethereal and enticing shapes and worlds. His mother island, Sicily, has long been associated with the arts and Charlie's creativity is strongly influenced by the beauty of the idyllic Sicilian landscapes and by its prestigious Greek and Roman artistic heritage, which he studied to refine his aesthetic canons.
In 2017 his passion for fashion led him to London Fashion Week, where he worked for some remarkable designers. Since then, he has been the in-house videographer for the world-renowned designer Mark Fast, creating unique material for his fashion shows and catalogue.
His research on beauty has been enriched by a growing awareness of the problems of modern society that inspired him to produce photo and video reportages about issues like mass consumerism, human rights and the freedom of expression.
In 2020, with the pandemic looming, Charlie created a one-of-a-kind reportage that recounted the eerie lockdown in the cities of London and Palermo. These reportages received so much attention from the national and international press that in 2021 Charlie decided to inaugurate his first Virtual Exhibition. To date, the Virtual Exhibition boasts over 2000 visitors and hundreds of shares and will soon become an in-presence exhibit.
There is an thrilling and prosperous future ahead for Charlie with projects including his first personal photographic exhibition in London, photography workshops and his first photography book.
