Contributors CHARLES W. BUSH Noted advertising and celebrity photographer, Charles Bush's body of work includes more than 1,000 national magazine covers; an impressive and extensive list of Hollywood film and television iconic luminaries; two United States presidents, key political and business leaders; hundreds of music packages and many national advertising, beauty, cosmetic and fashion campaigns. Born in Montreal, Canada, Charles was inspired by his internationally renowned uncle and painter Jack Bush, as well as the legendary photographer Irving Penn. His interest in photography and art led him to study at the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. While finishing his degree, he began shooting for Vogue and Glamour magazines. After graduation, Charles gained assignments for Vassarette, Catalina, L'Official, Los Angeles, Ebony, Good Housekeeping [68 covers], Paris Match, People, Shape, Taxi and TV Guide. Art directors in the music industry soon took notice and commissioned shoots with Tony Bennett, Olivia Newton- John, Toni Braxton, Diana Ross, Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, Joni Mitchell, Loretta Lynn, Tanya Tucker, Kanye West and Nancy Wilson. Charles and daughter, actress Sophia Bush Charles' client list includes film notables: John Travolta, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Faye Dunaway, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Demi Moore, Donald Sutherland, Rene Russo, Will Smith, Sharon Stone, Dan Ackroyd, Diane Lane, Carrie Fisher, Paloma Picasso, Anthony LaPaglia, Anne Hathaway, Michael Weatherly, Jon Favreau, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jeremy Piven, Helen Mirren, Al Pacino, Justin Timberlake, George Clooney, Martin Scorcese, Kate Winslet, Juliana Margulies, and Robert Duvall.

Charles' award-winning print work for Neutrogena and others, coupled with the rare distinction of having six national cosmetic campaigns run simultaneously, are a few reasons why he continues to perform at the top of his field. He is as much at home in the studio as he is traveling the globe for exotic assignments. His ability to capture his subject's individuality – by making them feel relaxed and secure allows him to produce the elegant, simple images, which have become the Bush signature. A founding member, former vice-president of Advertising Photographers of America, Charles is also a member of Art Center College of Design's Alumni Council. Charles and his wife Maureen reside in Pasadena, California with their 5 rescue dogs, and are active supporters of Bideawee and The Humane Society. 15 MIAMI LIVING
