Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Creative iPhoneography course run?

The class focuses on two weekly photo assignments delivered right to your email inbox. On Mondays you'll receive an assignment that's easy to slip onto a busy week, on Wednesdays a quick tip to support you with your project and on Fridays, a project for the weekend. 

Our online class space is a private Flickr group where you can share your photos each week, collaborate and take part in discussions.

At the end of the course you have the opportunity to participate in an online student art show.

After the course, optionally receive a one-on-one mentoring session via Skype, where we focus on how you can continue with your mobile photography and art after the course is over. 2x30 minutes on Skype or in a series of emails.

But I’m a beginner – can I still take part?

Absolutely! No previous photography or iPhone experience is necessary to take part in Creative iPhoneography.

Can I give the course as a gift? Do you offer gift certificates?

We do indeed! Here's how to get one:

  1. Purchase the course  you want to give as a gift.
  2. Write to me and let me know the name and email of your recipient. 
  3. I'll email you a gift certificate that you can either print out to give as a present, or pop in an email to give to someone virtually. 

Will you be running this course again?

    Perhaps towards the end of 2013 or in 2014. I haven't decided yet.

    Will I need to be in class at certain times?

    No, there are no set times when you have to be in class. The assignments will be emailed to you on set days, but you can work through them at your own pace and  visit our Flickr group at any time. This is a self-paced course, so you can fit it in whenever it's best for you. 

    When will you run the Creative iPhoneography course next time?

    In 2014. Or possibly at the end of 2013. 

    I'm an introvert, do I have to share my photos? 

    It's completely optional to share your photos and/or receive feedback. If you like you can work through the course entirely on your own. During the course I'll be available if you want to send me questions or ask for help via email instead of through our course space. It's important that you find a way that works for you

    I will say though, that sharing as a group is a wonderful way to gain new insights into your images and learn from your fellow course mates. We’ll all be focussed on learning more about how to use our mobile devices to create photography and art – so the group will be a safe and supportive place to share this vulnerable part of the creative process.

    I don’t have a PayPal account. How do I pay?

    You can pay with a credit or debit card without having a PayPal account. When you get to the screen that asks you to sign in with your PayPal account, simply click the option that says “Don’t have a PayPal account.”
