The Working iphone with jim Richardson

January 24 & 25, 2024

Photography transforms us, takes us to new destinations, and opens windows to new ways of seeing.  Few cameras have changed photography as much as the iPhone, freeing photographers from the tyranny of overstuffed camera bags as well as the dogged allegiance to technical solutions.  The iPhone spurs journeys of visual discovery — and it’s a lot of fun! Besides that, you’re paying good money for the camera that you carry everywhere everyday.  It’s time to master everything this wonderful tool has to offer.

Join me, an award-winning National Geographic photographer, for two sessions exploring the tools and learning the skills that will make you an iPhone believer.  In this small group format you will find a creative outlet to learn and also get your questions answered along the way!

8-10pm Eastern (Two 2-hour Zoom Sessions) *Class recordings are made available to those enrolled!   

Workshop Tuition: $199.00
