How to take better pictures with your phone


One of the most amazing things about our time is that photography is becoming absolutely accessible. We all have a great camera right in our pockets. You only need to learn the basics of photography to start improving your images.

A great photo does NOT depend on the camera you use, but rather HOW you use it.

When people ask me what equipment I use – I tell them my eyes.

Take a look at some pictures I've made with my phone:


In this workshop, we'll walk together around the pretty streets and canals of Amsterdam, while you learn essential photography concepts - such as light, composition and photo editing - everything with your phone.

We'll focus on cityscape photography: 'cause, you know, we've got such a beautiful place in our service! Amsterdam is a charming model and it doesn't matter if you live here or are just traveling to the Netherlands, I'm sure you'll finish the workshop with pretty memories to save forever.

But hey, don't worry, we'll also cover some portrait tricks to take professional-looking selfies :)

Here I've got some before and after, so you can feel the great impact of photo editing in your mobile:
