register for The Exquisite iPhone Photograph

class is limited to 12 participants

Once dismissed as a toy for lazy photographers, the iPhone is the new, hip and creative camera whose images now grace magazine covers, museum walls and gallery openings. In this workshop we focus on the fine iPhone photograph, exploring the shooting, editing and stylizing techniques that will move you from casual captures to serious artwork. This workshop will open your eyes and pump your creative juices to craft images that you’ll be proud to share, exhibit and sell. With two days of shooting, processing, learning and fun, your every iPhone Artistry urge will have time to flex and stretch.


  • From straight landscape to painterly effects, learn how to steer your iPhone images in a direction that mirrors your personal vision.
  • Explore iPhone-specific image capture, editing and stylizing with an eye toward creating photographs with intrigue and beauty.
  • Learn how easy it is to stitch and blend multiple images for stunning effects, all in the palm of your hand.
  • An early Sunday morning landscape-shooting excursion lets you practice your skills in the field and, later, in the classroom as you polish your images.


You’ll leave this class with a vast assortment of techniques to elevate your iPhone photos above the ocean of “me-too” filter effects and borders!

Prerequisites: participants should bring an iPhone 4S or newer with at least 6GB of available space. A comprehensive “Preparing for Class” letter will be sent to participants shortly before class.

About the Instructor: Dan Burkholder has a long history of looking beyond the photographic horizon to see, explore, teach and exhibit the next great thing in imaging. His book, iPhone Artistry (Pixiq Press, 2012), is the universe’s most comprehensive and fun how-to book for iPhone photographers. His poignant monograph, The Color of Loss (University of Texas Press, 2008), intimately documented the flooded interiors of post-Katrina New Orleans. And Dan’s groundbreaking book Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing has become a standard resource in the fine-art photography community.

Burkholder earned his B.A. and Master’s degrees in Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. His platinum/palladium and inkjet prints are included in private and public collections internationally. Dan’s web site is
