Take Better Photos with Your Phone - it’s one way to make 2019 a little better.
Once upon a time the phones we carried around with us started also including cameras. And despite growing up taking photos, the camera in the phone thing was a little weird to me for a while. It probably didn’t help that they were not high-quality files or using high-quality lenses.

But that changed. You can take pretty darn nice photos with your phone now. And a few years ago I realized that if I started accepting the phone camera as an actual camera, I could capture the world around me and share my view of it on a moment’s notice. Taking my years of self-taught and professor-taught photography knowledge and applying it to my phone was kind of magical.

After hearing story after story of friends getting frustrated taking photos with their phones, I thought there might be a way for me to help.

Taking Better Photos With Your Phone is for those who wish the photos they take in their everyday lives could be better. It's for those who have gotten worn down, taking so many photos (maybe too many photos) trying to get a shot to look good. It's for those who've hesitated to post a photo online or added the disclaimer "ignore the photo quality" before showing someone one on their phone. And it's for those who look back at their photos feeling anger or frustration - not from the photo subject itself, but from the experience of taking it.

I'm a professional photographer and a former theatre teacher. And I've got the tips and techniques that'll make a difference in your photos quickly.

Together we'll go through them, breaking it all down into straight-forward concepts and hopefully having a little fun along the way.

You'll need less than an hour total to watch the lectures. And then how much time you give the practice activities is up to you – of course the more you can spare the better, but I'd recommend at least 15 minutes a day.

The class is designed with easy starting and stopping points so you can fit it into your schedule however is best for you. Mark out time on your calendar. Watch a module. Do the practice things. Take it a day at a time. Have a wild-photo-focused weekend. It's up to you.

Check out the course curriculum and frequently asked questions below and then let's go!

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
How long will it take me to get through the course?
Overall it'll depend on how much time you're willing to put into practice and whether you want to watch all the units in one day or if you'd prefer to take your time and spread them out to let the concepts sink in more. The videos on their own will take less than an hour total for you to watch through once. The minimum amount of time you'll need for the practice sessions will vary depending on the concept at hand and which activities you decide to do. They range from a couple minutes up to a couple hours.
Is this an iPhone class or an Android class?
Both! There are a couple places where the mechanics are slightly different and they're noted with instructions for each within the class.
Who is this class for? Who is this class not for?
Taking Better Photos with Your Phone is for adult humans who've been taking photos with their phone for a while now but want to kick their photo-taking skills up a notch while saving time. The class isn't geared towards anyone who has studied photography. It's also probably not for you if you don't care about what your photos look like or you already feel really solid about your photo skills.

Take the class at your own pace and when you can. If that's in the quiet of 5am, that sounds peaceful. If it's after your kids are asleep, that also sounds peaceful. It can be something to do on your lunch break or an afternoon change-of-pace. It's up to you.

Ditch the frustration. Ditch the overwhelm. Take a little time for yourself and enjoy taking photos.
