Charles Lucima has been in my Photographer Spotlight since I first started shooting models. I think I first stumbled upon his work on Model Mayhem and he was one of the few photographers on that site that actually had truly professional work in his portfolio. There are a lot of photographers on there that list themselves as "very experienced" but don't have the work to back up that statement, Charles is not one of them. His work is always shot beautifully and elegantly, everything he shoots really is a work of art. He works with amazing models and captures them in just the right way. I would love to just be on location with him when he's shooting because I know I would learn a lot.
You can check out some of his work below as well as a recent video shot my Chris Vongsawat during a shoot Charles was doing with model Kate Compton for Treats! Magazine. The video looks great, but I'm really not a fan of the music selection.
