Have you ever looked at an amazing photograph and wondered how in the world the photographer was able to get a photo like that?

Here is a not-so-secret secret:

Making an amazing photo has less to do with the camera gear than you may think.

When I first got into photography and I would see an amazing photo, my first question was always: “What camera did they use?”

But that’s like asking Stephen King what pencil he uses to write.

The secret to making a great photo is not in using an expensive or fancy camera.

Nor do you need an expensive computer with fancy, complicated software.

I have seen some terrible photos shot by people who own $5,000 cameras. And I have seen amazing photos shot by people using the same iPhone that you and I have in our pockets (or maybe in your hand as you read this very sentence).

Mobile Photography Course

Before and after: This photo by Erin Brooks was shot and edited entirely on her iPhone. And in one of the course lessons, Erin will show you exactly how she did it.

With the brand-new iPhones coming out later this week, and the new iOS 12 that comes out today, right now is a great time to be using your iPhone or iPad for any type of photography — from taking photos to editing them. And that’s why we’re opening up the doors to this course in the midst of all the fun and excitement.

This photography course is one of the most ambitious courses we have done yet, and I think you’re going to love it.

I wanted to give you a detailed look at exactly what you’ll be getting when you sign up. Here I hope to convey how much content and value there is in the material, and how it will help you start taking better photos immediately.

As you’ll see, this course has three parts:

  1. There are several lessons that teach you how to take better photos and how to edit them so they look amazing.
  2. In the second module you’ll discover how to use the best editing apps there are for iPhone and iPad.
  3. And we’ve also compiled a handful of interviews with some very talented photographers who use their iPhones and iPads for capturing and/or editing their photos.
