We report on optical observations of the field of the black hole candidate X-ray binary MAXI J1543-564 (ATel #3330, #3331, #3334, #3336, #3341, #3355) with the 2-m Faulkes Telescope South (located at Siding Spring, Australia). Three images were acquired in SDSS i'-band on 2011 May 11th, 14th and 15th (MJD 55692.585, 55695.757 and 55696.752). Exposures were 200 seconds on each date. Preliminary flux calibration of the images was achieved using three i'-band observations of the Landolt standard star field RU149 on 2011 May 15 (six stars in this field were used).
