Charles Bio: Charlie’s photography career began in the clubs of Boston in the late 1970s photographing local bands. Before long he was photographing major acts such as Crosby, Still, and Nash, Queen, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Jimmy Buffet, and more. In New York and Los Angeles, he continued to photograph bands, many who were performing on the same bill as he was with his own bands.

In 1999 while still at Microsoft, Charlie began his business, Charles Cotugno Photography, photographing families and seniors. He also founded the non-profit organization, Stories of Autism, which organized 250 photographers throughout the U.S. to create fine art portraits and collect the stories of people in their communities living with autism.

After leaving Microsoft in 2014, Charlie turned his efforts full time to his photography business, transitioning into commercial photography. In 2018, he was diagnosed with Meniere’s Disease, causing fluid to gather in the inner and trigger bouts of severe vertigo. Unable to predict when these attacks would occur, he was forced to change his business model to one that didn’t include travel and large budgets. In 2022, he rebranded as a headshot photographer, opened a studio in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle. In the time since, Charlie has become one of the most sought-after headshot photographers in the Seattle area and his business has never been better. Fortunately, his Meniere’s Disease has been in remission for the last twelve months.
