iPhone Photography Course - Sydney Short Courses

iPhone Photography Course

What you'll learn

Learn to take breathtaking photos on your smartphone with our photography short courses in Sydney!

iPhone's have revolutionised consumer photography. We have the ability to create professional-looking photos using a device that fits in the palm of our hands. We can then instantly share those images with family, friends and the world. Setting yourself apart from the casual iPhone photographer and the millions of photos we see can seem hard. In this iPhone photography course, we want to show you it's as easy as gaining some knowledge in composition, camera settings and editing.

Everyone knows that person who seems to just nail it every time they snap a pic - with a little focused attention and some creative flair that person could be you!
