A relaxed and informativeworkshop with Jo Bradford, Author of the best-selling book “Smart Phone Smart Photography - Simple techniques for taking incredible pictures with iPhone and Android”.  Both Apple and Android users will be offered plenty of opportunity to work on their photography while getting 1 to 1 advice from Jo about composition, framing and the theory of what makes a good photograph. 

This workshop will teach photographers of all abilities that there is a lot of benefit in being comfortable and willing to shoot pictures with their smartphones. Participants will be taught techniques for realising their own creative voice and given the confidence to pursue the subject matter that interests, them embracing the technology for its ease of use and surprising array of features.

Jo will divulge her favourite tried and tested gadgets and apps in her tool kit to improve your smart phone photography.  This inspirational course is low on jargon, taught in Jo’s characteristic informal approach. Covering both practical hands on work and with some essential photo theory as it applies to smart phones, the aim of the day is to have fun while you learn.

The whole course is designed to give you the skillset and know-how you will need to get out there and start releasing the creative potential of your device, ensuring you can capture those fleeting moments every time.

Once everyone is familiar with their camera functions, Jo will provide some inspiration to unleash the creativity before everyone heads out for a photo walk to put what they have learned into practice. With a small group size there will be plenty of time for 1:1 advice and feedback on the walk. The walk will be in the village of Corbridge which offers endless opportunities for images. Corbridge is an easy village to get around with no steep inclines.

On our return, we will look at using readily available mobile phone apps to enhance your images and achieve professional quality smart phone photographs worthy of posting online or printing.

Please download the free Snapseed app to your phone and make sure it is functioning before arriving for the workshop.


If you have a newer version of the iPad, consider investing in the Affinity Photo app for professional quality image editing on a mobile device.

Jo is a practising artist and photographer who graduated from University College Falmouth with a master’s degree with distinction in Photography. She now gives tuition and group workshops in Smartphone photography. Jo is based in Dartmoor, Devon.
