Welcome to the age of smartphone photography. This may be the greatest time in history to be a photographer. The majority of us carry a mobile device at all times that includes camera technology capable of capturing images that are hard to differentiate from high-end DSLR shots. If you aspire to create images of a professional standard, now is the time to explore the potential of your iPhone camera.
I launched my iPhone photography workshops earlier this year and they have been extremely popular and successful. Participants, regardless of prior photography skills, discover new apps, workflows, tips and tricks that inspire them to capture stunning photos that they never thought possible with a smartphone.
The workshops are centered around a photo walk within Manchester. The diverse subject in the city allows us to cover many genres of photography including street, urban landscape, long exposure and HDR. The sessions are relaxed and tailored to suit the individual's needs with everything explained in a hands-on, friendly way. The emphasis is to have fun whilst capturing great shots. Martin Bennett from Urmston recently joined me on a workshop and has this to say; "Adrian was extremely accommodating and easy to work with right from the point of making an enquiry and everything about the day itself was well organised, relaxed and friendly. I really got the sense that Adrian wanted me to get as much as I could out of the day."
From inexperienced to advanced users, my workshops are tailored to suit individual skill levels and photographic goals. Each workshop is intended as a one-to-one training session, however up to two additional participants of similar skill levels can be included if you prefer.
Nicola Warwick from Chorley was another recent workshop attendee and says; "Adrian was generous with both his time and his knowledge, we spent a very pleasant few hours exploring Manchester's Northern Quarter in Manchester, discovering photographic subjects down the backstreets that I'd not come across before. I'd been looking forward to our 1:1 session and it was just brilliant!"
The good news is that I am keeping the workshops running throughout the coming months and taking bookings through until the end of the year. The workshop lasts around 3 hours and costs £75 (a £20 deposit is required). Times and days of the week are flexible but are not available during evenings. Add up to two additional participants with similar skill levels to yourself for £60 per person (£20 per person deposit required).
I am also available to present lectures to photographic societies, art clubs, corporates and private functions. These fast-paced presentations include examples of my work and real-time demonstrations of techniques and workflows. South Manchester Camera Club recently responded following my presentation; "Terrific. Thanks for a superb night’s instruction." In early September I visited Warrington & District Camera Club and they had this to say;" The whole event was very enjoyable and you presented it in a very engrossing and exciting manner. We'd definitely recommend this to another camera club!"
My next smartphone photography event is on October 27th when I will be presenting 'iPhone Photography & More' in Gatley, at the United Reformed Church Halls. If you ever wanted to ask questions or find out more about iPhone photography then this is a perfect opportunity. When I appeared at Chapel Camera Club earlier in the year they said; "If you don’t own an iPhone, you’ll certainly want one after Adrian’s convincing talk. You’ll be putting your DSLRs away."
Whether you're totally new to photography, or a seasoned pro, there's a lot to be gained by attending my workshops and presentations. Inspire and ignite your imagination to get the very best out of your smartphone photography that will leave others wondering how you ever achieved such remarkable results with just your phone!
