“… the more I watched, the more I realised that this is a course for all standards – yes, even professionals like myself.
It’s a little embarrassing to admit this, but I found myself taking notes at multiple times when watching the course!
Now I think about it though, even with 10+ years of pro photography experience under my belt, this doesn’t mean I know everything about using a device normally reserved for making phone calls to take a great photo.“
How crazy is that?
You’ll learn about basic concepts that’ll help you improve your iPhoneography skills. Add to this dedication and practice, and you won’t believe what kind of photos you’ll start to take.
Like I mentioned before, Emil gives very down to earth explanation of things and his lessons usually 10-15 mins on average.
Which is awesome in my opinion since you don’t get overwhelmed by the amount of info on a particular topic.
Don’t get me wrong, the lessons may be short but a LOT of topics are covered in IPA course.
You’ll learn the stuff that all photo courses should cover which include the following:
the essentials of iPhone camera
the principles of great photography
creative iPhone photography techniques
Not only that but Emil also talks about covers the artistic principles of photographic composition such as the rule of thirds, exposure lines, shooting from creative angles and so forth.
It gets better…
In his course, Emil also covered the common iPhone photography scenarios (genres), such as:
portrait and family photos
documenting street (candid) life
iPhone night photography
You get a lifetime access to the course which means that you can study at your own pace.
I’d understand if you have this question. I myself was a bit put off by Emil’s sales page that looked like some sort of a get-rich-quick scheme course from someone based in Latvia. So, is iPhone Photo Academy a scam? No, it’s not! When you actually join and go through the lessons, you’ll see the value.
Q: How to get started with iPhoneography?
If you’re wondering how you can get better iPhone photography, then iPhone Photo Academy certainly is the right choice for you. I don’t think I found any better course specifically focused on this genre.
Q: Can you do real photography with iPhone?
I know, many people will be skeptical but it turns out you really can crush it as an iPhoneographer! Emil likes to say that your smartphone is just a tool but you need to know how to use that tool properly if you want to get awesome photos. And I’ve seen a lot of great ones inside the private FB group.
No, I haven’t heard of any complaints associated with iPhone photography school. Truth is, I myself was a bit skeptical in the beginning, but when I actually bought the course I saw for myself that there’s a lot of value and iPhone Photo Academy course is totally legit.
Q: Should I buy a new iPhone before joining?
No! While it’s true that newer iPhones have better cameras but even if you have an older model you can still fully participate in iPhone photography school classrooms. And Emil constantly updates the videos, so you’re all good.
Q: Can/should Android users benefit from iPhone photography school?
I’d say about 20-30% of this course could be related to non-iPhone users but since I’ve never had an Android smartphone, it’s hard to honestly answer this question to the best of my ability.
Q: Are there iPhone photo editing lessons included?
While there are some videos that talk about editing in the iPhone Photo Academy course, you’ll benefit more if you buy its sister iPhone Editing Academy course as well.
Any other questions?
Let me know in the comments and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
