Los Angeles: Charles Grauke

What makes a great portrait captivating? Is it the face or what is behind it? Story telling portraiture is the result of a genuine collaboration between the subject and the photographer.

Los Angeles-based photographer and director Charles Grauke enjoys this process and understands the importance of this partnership in his work with athletes, models, entertainers and everyday people.

Charles has shot global motion and stills projects for Apple, Beats by Dre, Old Navy, True Religion Jeans and BeBe. He has worked on projects with Adidas, Athleta, Nike, and Vans, among others.

When he is not on set or working in the office, he’s most likely exploring the ocean. Whether he’s surfing, diving or cruising on a boat he draws inspiration from his surroundings fuelling his creativity.

Currently working with production companies practicing strict Covid-19 safety guidelines. Offering a remote shoot and review service for off set clients and creatives.
