"Charlotte is a professional at her craft. It's a pleasure to attend her workshops."

Award-winning photographic artist & educator
I’m proud to say I’m a Digital Imaging Advocate for Sony New Zealand, offering workshops and tuition through the Sony Scene platform. My teaching style is encouraging and supportive to help you learn. I offer tutoring and mentoring in a wide range of subjects, ranging from how to get the most from your camera all the way through to studio lighting and beauty retouching in Photoshop. I believe that continuing our personal development is how we stay inspired.
Creating art makes me feel fulfilled. It has taken me many years, but I've learned to accept that my creative photography doesn’t need to tick the boxes of rigid standards. That’s the way I tutor, too: I’ll teach you the rules so you can break them.
I offer personalised tuition and mentoring tailored to your individual or group needs.
I can help you by providing:
     - 1:1 customised tuition
     - Mentoring
     - Image review
     - Consulting
Or educational services for:
     - Speaking events
     - Photography or creative group workshops
     - Competition judging (I am a PSNZ-accredited judge)

“We have found Charlotte to be generous with her knowledge and professional in her approach to sharing it. I am very pleased to recommend her workshops and tutorials to anyone who wants to further their own practice,
either personally or on a club level."

- Lynda Leng: Auckland Photographic Society president
Photoshop Tuition
I'm an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop CC, so I can help you tackle this popular software
whether you're a first-time user or want to learn more advanced techniques

Perhaps you have a long-term goal, such as applying for an honours set, creating a home studio, or maybe you just want to become more confident using your camera. Together, we will work towards achieving those goals in logical and manageable steps.
"Charlotte has the ability and enthusiasm to share her knowledge in a way that is clear to the learner.
I highly recommend her workshops."

- Susan Porter
"I have had private tuition with Charlotte: great value.
You can walk away from a session with clearer photographic vision and be able to expand your horizon.
I highly recommend you take up the opportunity to learn from her."

— Linda Hart
