Student Testimonials: 

“Can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed the class.  Up until now I’ve carried my Canon EOS 80D wherever I go and only rarely shot with my iPhone.  But thanks to you I’ve discovered a wonderful world of options and now have great fun playing with my iPhone. It’s definitely addictive!  Many thanks for your generosity with your time, your patience, and introducing me to this exciting new photography tool. ” 

 All the best,



“I just wanted to say thanks for all the information and critiques on the iPhone class. Very helpful, and lots of fun to learn about all the post processing we can do right on our phone. I am glad to learn how to use that “camera we always have with us”. I can think of many times in the past when I wish I knew about Camera +. And now I have many other options too!”  
Thanks again,
