Classes are initially scheduled for Saturday Afternoons, both in studio or locations in a very cool, intimate environment where only 10-12 participants will attend each workshop, in order to receive positive one-on-one guidance and mentoring. As the group grows, some clases will be run on week nights.

ABOUT SMARTPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY: What begun as an interesting trend has now become a powerful form of expression, as millions of users now always have a smartphone in their hands/pockets/purses This has becomes the easiest way to register, document and keep track of events, situations and beautiful moments that would otherwise would get lost just as a memory. Remember the now "classical" saying: "The best camera is the one you have with you"? That means the Smartphone Photography is no longer a trend or a passing fever, it is here to stay and get better and better!! The cool thing about this workshop is that participants will greatly improve their skills at shooting with their smartphones, so these snapshots will have a much greater visual impact! Bloggers, Writers, Graphic and Web Designers, plus all Social Media Campaign Managers will also benefit from upgrading their visual skills using their smartphones better, therefore, their online content will greatly improve! - First, we are going to start by learning the professional tricks and tips, plus hidden smartphone features to better use the "native" capabilities of your own smartphone. - We move on to the basics of photography, composition, lighting use of texture, shapes and forms, in order to show the participants how can they "upgrade" their images with basic visual arts knowledge, applied to capture with the smartphone - We will - obviously- embark in shooting new images with our new knowledge and capabilities, as part of the workshop. -Then, we go some extra miles by further improving the images without ever leaving their phone, by using free editing apps which will enhance the quality of your final images, without turning then into "eye candy", this is, keeping a very realistic and professional look to your pics. We have established an interesting strategic alliance with the Miami​ Institute of Photography, and most of our future workshops will be run in their amazing premises.
