About Charlotte

Charlotte Piho photographer cook islands

Charlotte Piho is becoming widely recognised as one of the most followed female artists in oceanic photography. 'Thank you for sharing your images with the world, the work you are doing is beautiful, emotional and important.' - Stuart Mclean, Chief of Staff, The Daily Telegraph.


The stories behind each of her timeless images is moving. Photographing fearlessly always on a single breath, often at great depths and in untamed environments. Charlotte's art breaks barriers between marine life and people.


After nearly dying 8years ago, the accelerate academic gave up a corporate career in Finance, to immerse herself in what she loved – the ocean and photography. Canon Australia and Aquatech (Number 1 waterhousing company in the world) thought she was talented and with their support she was able to change her passion into her career. She has been fortunate to have been mentored by Internationally Multi Award winning water photographers Warren keelan and Asher King. And to have worked alongside top Australian Wedding photographer AtDusk (Chris Prestidge).


Dubbed repeatedly by press ‘The Real Moana’. She has gone onto photograph Australia's leading elite sporting events, including the Nutri-Grain IronMan and IronWomen series. Brand campaigns, most recently O'Neill Kids; Nike Swim; Speedo; Softlite Surfboards; Dafin. Along with surfing big waves, competing in World championships. And host award winning wellness retreats.


Charlotte’s biggest love and main focus is oceanic photography. Through her turtle and Eagle ray tours, workshops and retreats she continues to inspire people to connect and immerse themselves without fear in the ocean.
