Mocha Charlie

Mocha Charlie is an amazing photographer who has a real passion for music. She has her finger on the Pacific Northwest music pulse. She covers and shoots several shows per month in and around the region.

She a brilliant photo journalist but most importantly, she is also a mother who does her best to balance out her life and live it to the fullest. Mocha Charlie uses her passion and talent to support the community, her friends and family any way that she can.

Her passion for music photo journalism was ignited more than five years ago, after attending her first“Seattle Living Room Show.” At that moment she knew that using her photographic skills to help support our music community would be worth a shot (Yes, pun intended) and her calling.

Since then, Mocha Charlie has taken and edited tens of thousands of photos from several hundred shows that she has covered. Along her journey she has met some incredible artists and other folks involved in the local music scene. She has made a many new friends along the way.

Mocha Charlie contributes her photos and reviews of the shows that she covers to various music blogs and web sites, and celebrations of music including Seattle Living Room Shows, Seattle Secret Shows, and The Melodic Caring Project. From 2010-2012, she was on the board of “Northwest LoveFest”, a local festival that celebrated community through music and art.

When you go to a local show there is a good chance that you will see her with one (or more) of her  kids, her husband, or one (or more) of  her many friends that she has met through music. If you see her at a show, she may not be able to talk because more than likely you will  see her  with her Nikon up at her eye ready for the next shot. She is very focused on her work (another pun intended.)

Mocha Charlie will contribute photos and photo slide shows for Seattle Music Insider, as well as select show reviews.

You can see some of her photos on display on her Web Site, here.
