I am, Charlie Naebeck. I am a husband, photographer, teacher, writer, Youtuber, podcaster, and adventurer.

With students in over 70 different countries, and being a former professor for NYU, U of M, Adorama, Photo Manhattan, and teaching my destination workshops, the clear answer was to take everything online to keep in touch with everyone to share the gift of photography.

My students have come to me for many reasons over the years. Yet, some of the most popular reasons are to learn how to make better images for personal goals, how to photograph on vacations, to learn how to photograph real estate, street photography, and portraits, and learn how to start a business that they are proud of beyond the corporate world.

No matter if you are a complete beginner photographer or a pro stuck with a specific task or goal in mind, I can help you.

I have over 33 years of experience as a photographer and have been rated as one of the top ten photography teachers in New York City.

And my goal is simple. I want to inspire you and help you with your photography goals!

Sessions can be moved with more than 24 hours notice or granted credit for a different date.

In the event of an actual emergency, please let me know as soon as you can via email. I will make exceptions for medical emergencies with written proof if a session is missed or other real emergencies with proof to reschedule a missed session.
