This amazing image capture device can no longer be ignored as a tool for photographers and creatives.  In this iPhone / SmartPhone Photography Workshop Ventura, we’ll teach you how these phones create a constant flow of creativity and help enhance many aspects of the photographic thought process.

During the morning workshop, we’ll explore the I-Phone/ Smartphone’s unique and interesting image capture possibilities with the latest in creative and informative applications (which you will be downloading at the beginning of the workshop).

You will learn how to use these apps to shoot, edit and apply creative adjustments to your images. We will also cover basic composition and exposure techniques as they apply to the iPhone / Smartphone.

iPhone Photography WorkshopWe’ll meet you in front of  Beach House Tacos on the Ventura Pier.

Parking in the Crowne Plaza Parking Garage, in the State Park Beach parking lot, or in the lot at the end of S. Ash Street (Access of off Thompson Blvd), and take pedestrian bridge over freeway to reach pier.


We will introduce camera apps that will help you create amazing pictures and the compatible processing apps.  (We will be discussing 5 apps, which range in price from Free to $1.99)  Then we will walk the interesting beach promenade area of Ventura, starting at the historic Ventura Pier.

We will be taking pictures and learning each of the camera apps along the way. We will be covering exposure and composition basics and you’ll be able to try some amazing new lenses that can be attached to your phones.

After the walk, we will regroup and show you how to begin processing some of those images we have just captured.  We will also show you how to upload direct to social media and share with friends and family.

If so, workshop will be moved to the following weekend or to next date this workshop is held, usually within a 4 week period.

Here’s what people are saying about our iPhone class:

“I just wanted to say thanks for all the information and critiques. Very helpful, and lots of fun to learn about all the post processing we can do right on our phone. I am glad to learn how to use that “camera we always have with us”. I can think of many times in the past when I wish I knew about Camera +. And now I have many other options too!”  
Thanks again,
Laurie E. – Ojai, BA
“I have to say that class was awesome. I have been shooting, lets call it event photography with my iPhone photography Venturaphone at our local bars shooting our favorite local bands. Everyone loves the images I have been getting and I was even asked to display some at our local Art Show. Thank you again for this class!!!! I hope you teach another one, maybe part two!”

“I took Mark and Holly’s iPhone photography workshop and learned SO much. I love to take pictures with my iPhone, but now I take beautiful photos that are well-composed and fun. I learned about great new apps and I am definitely more confident, creative and have a new eye for looking at scenery, especially the light that falls on different images. I highly recommend it.”
Gloria M. – Camarillo, CA
“I took the Santa Barbara IPhone Photography Workshop this morning and I learned so much in the time we were together!  Holly and Mark, the instructors, were very knowledgeable and easy to follow.  They walked me through step by step in what to download and how to use the features of that app.  I was amazed at what I could do.
I am very happy I will be able to use my new skills when I take my big vacation to the Galapagos Islands next month!!  Thank you, Holly and Mark!”
Dee E. – Santa Barbara
