Interview with Charlie Raven

Interviews

15 April 2016

Posted by Anna Fraser

Hi Charlie! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

Hi, I'm Charlie, based on the south coast of the UK. Whilst my current Picfair uploads may not fully demonstrate it, I specialise in music based photography, most notably concerts and festivals. I have commissions from various outlets, publications, venues, and festivals, having travelled as far as Thailand to cover a festival recently. I love music and photography and just feel privileged to be able to take photos of some of the biggest names in the business, as well as continually discovering new talent.

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

AMany of the festivals I cover are full of weird but equally fantastic characters, there was one Glastonbury however where I found myself at one point in the middle of the biggest game of twister I could ever imagine, and then witnessing the construction of 'welliehenge' emerging from the mud.

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

AI'm firmly in the Canon camp and love my Canon 15mm fisheye, both on full frame and cropped sensors, it can add that extra wow factor to wide festival and concert shots. Saying that, my current workhorse concert set up includes a Canon 5D mk3, 7D mk2, 24-70 f2.8L II and 70-200 f2.8 IS II. For extra low light situations I'll revert to the 50mm f1.4.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

AAside from learning how to use your camera to the best of its abilities, perseverance and self belief, never give up. Use any criticism constructively, and respect all professionals you will undoubtedly come into contact with.

It's difficult to choose a favourite picture as there are a lot of very different images, each with their own unique attributes. I love the <a href="/pics/161602126-las-vegas-su... Read more

It's difficult to choose a favourite picture as there are a lot of very different images, each with their own unique attributes. I love the <a href="/pics/161602126-las-vegas-sunset" target="_blank">Vegas sunset strip shot</a> I captured from a helicopter trip, but one of my top faves has to be this arcadia shot at Glastonbury last year. There is just so much going on I never get bored of looking at it, it's actually hanging on my wall and I feel humbled that the Arcadia guys keep asking me back to cover their shows. Read less

This was shot at Creamfields, which is a world renowned and award winning dance music festival. This was taken during an epic set by one of my favourite DJs, Paul van Dyk, who I've had the pleasure of shooting many times before, particularly at Cream in Ibiza. There is always so much energy and atmosphere at these events, its just a question of waiting for the moment when the crowd, artist, music and lighting are all in sync. Read less

This was taken at one of the many Bournemouth Air Festivals I've covered. I'm glad I was able to get a few good shots of the wingwalkers as they haven't been back the last couple of years. I was perched on the cliff top with a cropped sensor and extender as I only had a 200mm lens. Seemed to work well though! Read less

The clouds, sky, and sun were just great that day. I had a few close ups of the planes so decided to get a few more wider shots.

I'd never been to Durdle Door until I took this photo. It was a while in the planning as I had to make sure the milky way was in the best position, the moon was at its dimmest, and the weather was clear. This was only the second time I had tried astro photography, the first being on dartmoor which was a great learning experience. Read less

This was one of my first ever shots of the Red Arrows, I've taken a few similar since but the angle of the shot and positioning of the clouds makes this one stand out.
