About This Class

Are you ready to take professional images with your smartphone?

Join adventure photographer Chris Burkard for an insightful, 45-minute class on capturing incredible images — vistas, mountains, and extreme experiences — with the smartphone you carry every day.

With a few secret pocket lenses, Chris has grown his Instagram following to over 2 million fans — and now he's teaching you how to do the same.

You'll learn to create and share exceptional images that look professional and feel immersive, including:

  • Inspiration: Every lesson is filled with behind-the-scenes stories of his real-life adventures, from surfing in Northern Russia to camping beneath the Northern Lights.
  • Shooting Tactics for Mobile: Learn how to capture timeless photography styles on your mobile device, from silhouettes to leading lines and more.
  • Pro Editing on Mobile: Level up your smartphone editing with Chris's step-by-step workflow using Adobe Lightroom Mobile, available for both iOS and Android.

By the end, Chris asks every student to share photos of their own — from their adventures, hometown, and daily sunrise. Get ready for a true photo adventure!
