iPhone Photography Workshop in North Wales

 

I am excited to announce my first series of iPhone photography workshops in North Wales. These one-to-one or small group sessions are designed to be tailored around your specific interests and requirements. You will learn to capture and edit stunning photos with your smartphone camera that you never thought possible! Low on jargon, high on content, my workshops are designed to get the most from your device, in a relaxed and informal way.

Conwy 900px.jpg

I have chosen the beautiful town of Conwy, in North Wales, as the base for these workshops. There are endless opportunities to discover and inspire your creativity here. Stunning coastal scenery, a backdrop of mountains, historical architecture, bustling high streets, a picture-postcard quay and marina, the smallest house in Britain and of course the magnificent medieval castle and town walls.

Our three-hour workshop begins with a relaxed introduction to the apps, shooting techniques and principles of composition that we will be exploring throughout the day. We then embark (weather permitting) on a guided photo-walk around the areas of the town that are appropriate to your particular photographic interests. We can concentrate your time to capturing street, landscape, long exposure, sunsets or a combination of all these photographic genres.

My workshops are guaranteed to increase your understanding of the photographic features of the iPhone, iOS operating system and associated apps. Our session concludes with a review of your photos from the day, then using a host of powerful editing apps and techniques we will explore how to enhance your images and create a visual masterpiece.

I sincerely want you to enjoy the time we spend together and leave feeling that you have learnt practical and creative skills to take fabulous smartphone photos. We will schedule the workshop for a date and time that best suits you and agree a detailed itinerary in advance of your visit. There really isn’t a better way to improve your photography than by 'getting out there and doing it'.

The workshops are suitable for beginner or advanced photographers alike.
