What we're about

Welcome to the San Francisco iPhone Photography Meetup Group!

Our group is for anyone who wants to learn how to use their iPhone to take and edit pictures better! We hold free and in-person workshops every week to talk about iPhone photography tips and tricks for all skill levels and photography styles.

All of the workshops provided in our group are in-person but conducted on the Lightmob app! Lightmob was started by the organizers of this meetup group and is a peer-to-peer knowledge sharing marketplace that offers real-time workshops for digital creatives. We are a new startup based here in SF and we are using these free, weekly workshops as a way to gather feedback and suggestions for Lightmob. We always conduct an optional feedback session at the end of every workshop and we have absolutely loved the suggestions we have heard so far!

We love that our platform is able to connect passionate aspiring photographers with professional instructors. Therefore, if there is a photographer that you would like to see conduct a workshop or a class based around a certain photography skill/genre, please send the organizers an email with your ideas.

We are passionate mobile photographers and would love to meet you! We look forward to having you join us at one of our events.
