Hi, I'm Dawn Charles.
I’m an intimate wedding and couple photographer who realized my true passion lies in helping other photographers. I transitioned from traveling every weekend and shooting to creating educational resources and teaching others in my industry. I live in Bend, Oregon with my husband and three daughters. When I'm not at my desk or chasing my kids around, I'm managing the local natural light studio I own with my best friend, updating our airbnb, or outside enjoying our amazing city.
I'm so glad you landed here, and I hope you find this as a place of helpful resources for you in your photography business or creative journey.
Dawn's given me hours back in my business. Not all photographers should be teachers, but Dawn just gets it – and you can tell she loves doing it. She’s taught me everything I need to know about editing, and her presets and workflows have given me hours back in my business. She’s open, honest, and a literal ray of sunshine.
I've done so many workshops and courses and I'm not kidding when I say just ONE day as a Rise Member and I've learned way more. There's no holding back between the Posing and Instagram Course alone. I don't know which I'm enjoying more! Finally courses that just get it. Thank you!
Your resources have been so educational, motivating, and easy to understand. They brought up some really great ideas that I would have never thought of for myself. You are a phenomenal photographer and an amazing educator. I really look up to your work and your knowledge!
