Mobile photography was my gateway drug into photography. It is a phenomenon that has made taking amazing photos easier and more accessible than ever. Everyone from your sister to your grandma might be taking mobile photos but there is in fact a technical craft to doing it well that makes the best really stand out. I'll take you through my entire shooting, editing and sharing process - all of which I do with my iPhone - to show how I developed my style & built my Instagram up to 240,000 followers.

  • Lighting. When to shoot and what lighting techniques to keep in mind.

  • Community. How to connect to other photographers online and build your social persona. 

What You'll Do
