“You Don’t Take A Photograph, You Make It’”

– Ansel Adams


“You have exceeded my expectations, thank you. I feel way more confident and ready to experiment with my smartphone now, this was very, very long overdue. Bravo on a job well done, I feel inspired and ready to go out and photograph everything I have ignored for such a long time.”

-Herman, Fabulous Phone Photography


“Karin has a playful approach and a warm personality that gives you all the space you need to get to know your own camera. And you learn how to put your own perspective into the image. I would recommend her as a teacher to everyone that’s willing to really know what photos are about.”

-Fleur, One-on-One Mentoring

Learn by doing

“It’s a great course where you really learn how to make good pictures! It is user-friendly, I had fun doing it, and now I know how to use my iPhone to make good pictures. I really liked the combination of the theory and the assignments. I learned by doing. I learned a lot in a short period of time.”

-Wilma, Travel iPhoneography for Instagram

Personal and funny

“I started this course to get a clear view (again) on Instagram. In personal, clear, brief (yes, not a thousand words per lesson) and kind of funny way you learn the finishing touch of a great Instagram account with how to find hashtags, how to schedule your posts and how to create a good looking feed. I am ready for Instagram 2019.”
