Charlie Clift


Charlie Clift has dangled CEOs upside down, been shouted at by political leaders, waded up to his chest in floodwaters, dived with sharks, gone undercover with cops, and discussed peace with Nobel Prize winners. His drive is to tell personal stories in an intimate and unique way. He works globally for a range of editorial and commercial clients including The BBC, BAFTA, The Sunday Times Magazine, The Premier League, Samsung, AXA, The British Council and others. He is a supporter of many charitable causes and has created campaigns for Action for Children, and Help for Heroes to name a few.

To keep things fresh and exciting Charlie cannot stop creating personal work. From a collective portrait of British emigrants to capturing the magic of the circus these projects help Charlie experiment with different ways of making images and telling stories. They have been exhibited widely and published in places such as Creative Review, the BBC News Website, It’s Nice That, and the British Journal of Photography. His work is often featured in awards such as the Taylor Wessing Photo Prize at the National Portrait Gallery, the Association of Photographers Awards and a Portrait of Britain.
