What you'll do

Have fun learning how to get professional looking photos using your smartphone while exploring beautiful and vibrant downtown Ventura. You will get to try a bit of all photo styles including landscape, macro, street, architectural and portrait. We will start with some tips and tricks to using your phones camera and features as well as basic compositional elements of photography. Then we’re off! Beginning with City Hall overlooking downtown, I will show you some of the unique architectural features that make for amazing photo opportunities. Then we will hike above the Botanical Gardens that overlook the city and see some hidden spots that make for some spectacular landscape shots. After that it’s all downhill “so to speak” as we walk through downtown and see some of our local color and other elements that are great for street photography. Ending up along the beachfront you will get a completely different perspective of Ventura than where we began!

Joey

I find it fascinating that 9/10 people on average have no idea that the smartphone they carry can capture and process photos just as good if not better than about $20,000 worth of professional gear could just 5 years ago! Not to mention that the same smartphone also has 100 times the processing power than all of the computers that put us in space! Yes, I love technology.. A fun, patient and easy going person with an extensive background in technology and the arts and have called Ventura home for 25 years. An Apple Specialist and IT consultant for 12 years, a working photographer for 15 years and a “Google Trusted Photographer” my emphasis is now on landscape and lifestyle images using only mobile devicesI It brings me joy to help people learn how to get the most out of the tech we use everyday and seeing the results of their work!
