Welcome to Fabulous Phone Photography!
The best camera is the one in your back pocket!
Maybe you’re wondering why I invested the time to learn to photograph with such a ‘simple’ camera when I have professional gear?
Years ago I went to New York with my daughter. And what do you do in New York? You walk ……… a lot.
Of course, I brought my professional gear with me. But I can’t walk around with a heavy camera bag all day and every day (my back has very strict rules on that one). What I can do is carry around my phone all day and every day!
That’s why I invested in my phone photography skills.
So I could enjoy walking the streets of New York free of heavy gear and still make the pictures that became a lifelong memory of that trip.
The beauty is you can do the same because we’re all photographers now!
Smartphone cameras have been a photography game changer. Placing a very capable camera in the back pockets of millions of people and encouraging us to capture images in a quantity unprecedented in human history.
But what about the quality? Is that at the same level? No, it’s not.
Most people don’t feel like learning the basics of smartphone photography. And that’s fine.
But because you’re on this page and you came this far I’m asking you: ‘Are you most people?’
No, I didn’t think so! Let’s make sure you gain the skill and the confidence to make smartphone pics that stand out from the crowd!

this is what some of my students are saying
-Lynn, Alumnus Fabulous Phone Photography
-Juan, Alumnus Fabulous Phone Photography
“I really liked the camera app suggested and the ability to easily set the shutter speed and iso. It was super helpful to run through the app setup and manual exposure.”
-Wendy, Alumnus Fabulous Phone Photography
-Fleur, One-on-One Mentoring
Too many to mention, although just getting to see what the capabilities of the smartphone are was an aha moment for sure. The other was the reality that the smartphone only has a large DOF, finally, the other wow moment was seeing how Snapseed works. Just to say thank you, you certainly exceeded my expectations and that I am sure is what you want to hear. 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.”
