Smartphone Photography Training Courses

Train your team to create professional business photos on their iPhone and Android smartphone

Are you a Manager in digital marketing, communications, branding, content creation, social media, industry development and training?

Capturing consistent, reliable professional business photos is critical. These images are often a reflection of your brand in social media, advertising and relied upon for accurate record keeping.  


Feel confident and comfortable that you and your staff will be empowered to take the right photo, the best way and know how to enhance them even further using easy to use intuitive photo editing apps.

What clients have to say

Our team takes lots of iPhone photos as part of agricultural extension work. Mike ran a great session that had everyone engaged and we all learned about some great tips and apps that we've been using since to improve the photos we post in our communications work.

Using social media for my job I wanted to improve the quality of my photos I post. Mike was a fantastic teacher and I learnt a lot over the two hours. It’s hard to believe what you can do with your Smartphone! I’ve been able to immediately put many of the tips into practice and would highly recommend his courses. Thanks Mike.

I joined the workshop to learn how to take WOW images, for work reasons and for my own personal images too. The session was great and useful for people with all levels of technology knowledge. I learned some handy information that I will now use on a day to day basis. Mike was friendly and very knowledgeable. Thanks

Mike's workshop really opened up my eyes on what is achievable with these devices. The workshop format was very flexible and allowed me to ask lots of questions based on the types of photos I take both for work and personally. Mike's knowledge of both camera and editing apps was amazing.

Jurgen Martz

Franchise Owner

Mike's workshop is clearly presented, well organised and a lot of fun. Mike is very knowledgeable and presents the information in a jargon-free, non-judgmental manner with a lot of positive re-enforcement and tips to improve your photographs. I highly recommend the course to all who want to get more from their smartphone camera.

Jürgen Strauss

The workshop has helped me to move out of my mobile photography 'comfort zone' and start experimenting with other editing apps and more features of my iPhone. The FB group is a great follow up support as the news skills will take time to develop. Thanks Mike for answering all my questions and the great follow up.
