His name is Charles George Jackson but people call him Charlie. He is a British travel photographer with a passion for wildlife, based in La Herradura. After travelling extensively around Africa, Europe and Canada, he now divides his time between Spain and East Africa.
Charlie is a familiar face in the village and his pleasant personality is immediately apparent when you get a chance to talk to him. His charisma is abundant but he has a gentle approach and will never say a bad word about anybody, in fact, he will always find something nice to say.
Charlie had the good fortune to be trained by a renowned photo journalist and this early experience is evident in his work today, in his documentation of unspoiled environments, landscapes, tribes and wildlife. His passion for environmental issues, animal welfare and vanishing tribes shines through in his photographic work. He likes to portray the power of the spirit and to create atmospheric images of landscapes, peop
le and wild animals.
He dedicates much of his time to graphic design and photography and travels a lot as he has a passion for discovering beauty all around the world. Charlie is part of a large family and all his family members are fascinated by wildlife. So too is Charlie and he talks with passion about conservation – in particular about the conservation of the black Rhino. Some of his immediate family
members are directly involved in various conservation projects.
When you pay a visit to Charlie’s website you will be taken along on a fascinating visual trip through a prolific portfolio of stunning images. Besides his wildlife photography you will find examples of diverse subject matter including abstract landscapes, portrait photography, modern and ancient architecture, interior and exterior design and of course Spain.
Apart from his passion for photography Charlie is also a great musician. He has been playing the guitar since he was twelve. He used to organise jam sessions with Tony Turner during summer nights in La Herradura. All sorts of people joined in. La Herradura is now a place boasting lots of live music venues and concerts and Charlie has been playing with many musicians, something that he thoroughly enjoys.
Charlie has also participated in the Reflections from La Herradura book. If you would like to read his interesting story, you can get your copy here.
