CharlieSue Photography » San Francisco Bay Area Wedding, Portrait and Food Photography


I love teaching.  Luckily, I’m able to offer educational opportunities for both my clients and fellow photographers!  Please see below for the latest details and sign up for my newsletter for early access to future events.


For my clients:

Find me weekly at PhotographyMyWay, right in the Walnut Creek/Pleasant Hill, CA area.  My current courses include:

  • “The Basics”, an introductory course to familiarize you with your camera and basic settings.
  • “Exposure”, an in-depth course about how to use Aperture, ISO, and Shutter Speed to help you get the photo results you’re looking for.



I’m thrilled to be working with Sarah of Snixy Kitchen, Alanna of The Bojon Gourmet, and Gerry of Foodness Gracious for their California Food Styling & Photography Workshop in June 2017.  This 3-day retreat held in Sebastapol, CA will be full of great information, fun, and hands-on interaction.  Learn more about the food photography workshop here.




Mentoring is available for photographers at all different skill levels.  I’m happy to customize your time based on what your personal goals are- from learning how to take better photos to editing to creating galleries and working with clients.  Here’s a sample list of some of the topics you might like to cover:

  • Camera Basics/Settings
  • Editing
  • Photography Style
  • Website/Image Review
  • Lighting
  • Posing
  • Equipment
  • Prepping for Client Sessions and Weddings
  • Image Delivery

I’m available in person if you’re local or via Skype!  If this one-on-one time is what you’re looking for, just send me an email for rates.
