Our Photographic Concept

We like what we do, its fun but that doesn’t mean we don’t take it seriously. We do. Our job is to understand the best in you and to show that off to the best of our ability. It’s that challenge that excites us. Yes our experience counts but the same experience has also taught us to listen, understand… learn.

Charles Sturge photographer (CPL owner) has been commissioned by the Times, Telegraph and New York Times; he’s toured with the Black Eyed Peas and worked with stars in London and Hollywood and has also had a film broadcast by National Geographic.

I am the office manager of a FTSE100 company managing 120000sq ft of office space and over 800 staff.  I employed Charles a couple of years back primarily to take corporate head shots for marketing, intranet and communications purposes but also to photograph special events too.  I needed someone engaging, charming and professional having inherited a photographer whose interpersonal skills weren’t great and whose finished product was good but poorly delivered.

Having used a number of ‘try before you buy’ photographers I still wasn’t satisfied I had found the right fit and then I found Charles Sturge. Charles’s product is first class and his delivery is 21st century cutting-edge.  We are always looking at ways to operate smartly and Charles provided a remote online solution before and after each shoot that has proved to be very popular and very light for the customer; it really is very impressive.

The shoot of course is the real reason we have complete and utter faith in him and his team.  He has managed to get staff in front of the camera who have refused to get in front of the camera before. His customer service skills are exceptional allowing him to execute his craft impeccably.  He is approachable and engaging which in turn gives the customer confidence and assurance which is reflected in the end-product.

I believe that I have found a pragmatic and unpretentious blue ribbon photographer who matches our own values and standards. I couldn’t think of working with anyone else.

From stars in Hollywood to tribesmen in Africa, we’ve been asked to do some weird and wonderful work. The key with editorial photography is to get involved. Our commissioned have come from the press, not for profit and from corporations.  The first step is to understand the story and/or message.  We are very thorough at the beginning because we know we stand a much better chance armed with a full understanding.

We capture emotion by being emotional. We immerse ourselves and expose as our selves. We are un-afraid.
