Photo editing without the computer, jargon and technical stuff!

Who has the time or patience to endure the steep learning curve of a complicated desktop program? Especially when most if not all of your images are captured on your smartphone!

This course assumes have some basic Snapseed editing experience.

Quickly transition from intermediate to more advanced photo editing techniques on your smartphone or iPad/tablet device.

In just 10 lessons, you will be able to:

  • Feel confident in editing any image – getting the most out of your smartphone
  • Make your photos tell a story and jump off the screen
  • Avoid the steep learning curve and overwhelm of desktop editing programs

You will also avoid:

  • Relying on your ‘big’ camera for capturing stunning images
  • Overwhelming subscription desktop photo editing programs
  • The learning curve of experimenting with different features and what they do
  • Over-editing images to the point that they look fake and unrealistic
  • Downloading countless gimmicky apps that actually destroy the image quality
  • Wasting time. You should be taking photos and enjoying loved ones

Have you ever said 'the photo doesn't do it justice'?

Photo editing is about re-creating what was lost in the capture. In this course, you will learn about how to 'see' as a photographer, before you start editing your masterpieces.

You will learn how to identify photographic opportunities, break down the elements of the scene, recognise the motivation and intention of the photo and how to really make that stand out in a beautifully aesthetic image. Doesn't that sound great?

After this weekend, you will be consistently creating WOW images that you are proud to share, post and print.

All you need to know is the foundation principles, techniques and a little bit of practice.

Whether you take photographs of nature, travel, business or family, you will be able to make each photo memorable as if it was taken by a professional photographer.

If you are a business owner wanting to better communicate your brand, capture moments, travel memories or someone who struggles with creativity - you will start to breakdown:

  • How to find the story and motivation for taking the photo
  • How to direct the attention of the viewer to exactly where you want in the image

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have a later model iPhone or Android phone?
Short answer No. The benefit of a modern smartphone is the low light advancements in the photo capture stage. If you have that blotchy, typical early model low resolution images – we cover that in the course too.
Do I need to a basic understanding of photography first?
This course is designed without the assumption of any prior knowledge. We start at the basics and support you along the way to the more advanced techniques and tools. You can post a question to Mike directly or to our private Facebook group, where you can help others with the answer.
What if have an older phone, iPad or Tablet?
That’s ok. The editing apps will work on any device. If you find that your device does not support the recommended apps – you will receive a full refund. You do not need to wait until that flash new phone to take full advantage of this course. It is not about the camera. The apps selected will work on the iPad and Tablet. Remember, it is not about the camera. You will actually be at a distinct advantage being able to see your progress on a larger screen!

Can I download the videos?
Yes, you can watch them directly in the course on your smartphone or desktop. I have made them available in Resource module to download and watch off line. You can also download the audio version. I know sounds funny – listening to a photography course instead of watching. We are busy people and personally, I love podcasts and prefer to listen to courses when that option is made available.
