Charlie Gardiner

Hi, I'm Charlie. Originally from the UK, but brought up in Spain, I'm a travel photographer and passionate writer. For the last few years, I've been lucky enough to turn my passion for travel photography and writing into my full-time job. It allows me to travel the world doing what I love. A fun fact about me is that I'm also a qualified scuba diving instructor so in my spare time when I'm not behind a camera or laptop, you'll probably find me underwater somewhere!
