    "I've just received the Arc and Line Limited Edition Boxed Set and I really thought I neded to let you know how delighted I am with the purchase. The print of Mount Fiji is exquisite, the book itself superb and as a package the boxed set just exudes quality. I have copies of "In my Minds Eye", "Seeing Landscapes" and "The Making of Landscape Photographs." I belive Arc and Line is the best volume yet! Very many thanks for sharing such an inspirational volume of work."

    "I just wanted to record our collective thanks to you for such an excellent event on Saturday. Your talk was inspiring, entertaining, thought provoking and undoubtedly the best we have had. The rather superb evening completed our long day perfectly. We would love for you to come back and talk to us again in the not too distant future."

  • Michael Kerr - Sunday Telegraph said:

    "A photographer who brings a rare, almost spiritual serenity to his landscapes. His latest show, Silent Exchange, brings together images from the Eighties to some from a trip just a few weeks ago to Morocco and Tunisia. What unites them is a concentration on beauty; on what he has called “a thing made holy by the light falling on it”. "

  • Alex Matchett - Spears said:

    "The warren-like construction of the National Theatre means there is a sense of fortuitous discovery on viewing Waite's landscapes, something that evolves to a more tangible wonder as you move through photographs that establish themselves as outright things of beauty, gaugeable against any art. The creator has waited, often weeks, for the right place and time to arrive and this impassioned observation makes for an enchanting narrative that takes the viewer from the desolation of the Rockies to a slumbering Provence and the hovering timelessness of Burma's Inle Lake. Silent Exchange is a welcome celebration of landscape photography that maintains its originality simply because the images are so good."

  • Tim Parkin writer of on-landscape said:

    "The exhibition is a must see. Charlie has more than earned his place in the ‘masters’ of landscape photography and despite his insecurities about his work he continues to add wonderful images to an already stunning portfolio. If you don’t know much about Charlie Waite you’re in for a treat. If you can make it down put aside some time to let the images sink in - I spent a very pleasurable two hours with the images and would happily return for another look."

  • Tim Parkin writer of on-landscape said:

    "Charlie has a great talent in being able to see subtleties of composition that evade many other photographers. His pictures have an insouciant perfection that is beguiling and I think it’s fair to say that he has rightly earned his place as one of the masters of the square photograph."

    "On Wednesday 1st October my friend Shirley & I came to see your talk in Oxford. It was well worth rushing from Swindon to be there. Your book Of photographs has proved very useful as today I showed it to my Mum in hospital - it really cheered her up to see the image of Uffington: a place she always enjoyed visiting in the past, her smile was priceless thankyou."

    "A fitting title for such a superb exhibition. Thank you for reminding everyone that photography should be all about beauty. I was deeply moved by the balance, poise and purity of some of those images. Rarely have I felt so moved in one exhibition. Never stop taking pictures! (and make sure you keep sharing them!). "

    "Some time ago you reviewed my portfolio for me as a birthday present organised by my wife. You were very positive and gave me the encouragement that I needed to do something with my photography. Recently I have exhibited at a few small exhibitions which have been great for feedback and in the summer I exhibited at the Outdoor Photography sponsored event at the Patchings Arts Festival in Nottinghamshire. As a result of this and ultimately your kind words of encouragement, I have recently secured my first solo exhibition in a large local gallery."
