Smartphone and iPhone Photography Courses in Melbourne

I have been running smartphone and iPhone photography courses in Melbourne for the last 4 years and I enjoy it so much.


Because you can do so much with the mobile phone, it opens up a whole set of creativity.

Nowadays the small camera on the iPhone or Android Phone is so powerful, and it’s a pity we do not always use it at its full potential.

It’s a bit like having a Ferrari on a circuit but driving it at 80kmh because we do not know how to change gear.

And this is why I started this course 4 years ago, to share with you all I know about iPhone and Android photography.

What will you learn in the Smartphone and iPhone Photography Courses in Melbourne

This smartphone and iPhone photography course provides 3 hours of tuition on how to enhance your photography skills.

In this workshop you will learn :

  • Most effective hints on composition and how to use them to improve your photography
  • Take control of your camera and never leave again your smartphone to decide for you
  • The importance of lighting and some useful tricks for portraits and street photography
  • Photos enhancement with a simple mobile app

You do not need any photography background.

The workshop will be based on assignments to improve your composition, step-by-step.

It’s about improving your photography skills using a practical approach and having fun at the same time.

I will be always with you, inspiring your work and providing suggestions to enhance your photos.

I will also introduce you to a simple mobile app that will be used to enhance the picture.

When I don’t lead this workshop I run my travel photography website MEL365 where you will also find more tutorials and guides.

  1. The mobile phone photography workshop my wife and I did with Stef was fantastic. We learned so much not just about taking better photographs but also how to enhance them in the post-production phase.
    Stef is a knowledgeable and patient teacher. We enjoyed the experience immensely

  2. Stefano I had a great and easy time. I was a bit scared of this workshop as I did not know what to expect. I had no clue about photography. I now have a better understanding and even better and can make better photos!! especially with a better framing

    • Cheers Pat, my workshops are open to everyone really. I love to teach about the composition and how to better frame the photos.
      Many thanks for your feedback. Really appreciated

  3. Thanks, dear for the amazing workshop. Very useful information for me to develop my photography skills. The class really changed the way I do now smartphone photography.
    I was impressed by the many composition tips you gave us. That really helped. And the few technical tips as well
    Wish you all the best!

  4. I had a great time learning about the Framing of photos for max effect. The app to enhance the photos was also a surprise.

  5. Thanks so much Stef. You were able to share your knowledge in a relaxed, easy to follow manner, which made the session comfortable for beginners as well as those with a little more knowledge. The information about how to frame objects for the most effect was really invaluable.

    • Thanks Rose,
      courses are on a monthly basis unless you have already another person that wants to join and in that case, we can organise on the first available Saturday.

      I drop you an email with the next dates

  6. Hi there,
    I am interested in attending a mobile photography course if you have any coming up soon?
    (I have just subscribed to the mailing list!)

  7. Hi there
    I manage a community centre in Warburton in the Yarra Valley and I was wondering if you would be interested in coming up one Monday afternoon to teach a basic smartphone photography session to a group of 12-20 year olds?

    If this is something you aren’t able to do, do you happen to know anyone that may be interested?
    Many thanks!
