I was expecting a bit more for my money
Brittany App
This is so hard. I really prefer not to leave negative reviews, but I after putting money down on this course, and watching it all the way though, I was disappointed. I've been a full-time professional photographer for almost 20 years. I love and respect Chris's work, and really admire him as a human being. He's a true inspiration. Because of all that, I hopped on this course right away, in hopes that there would be some valuable tools to add to my toolbox (especially during a time when my paid photography work has all-but-vanished due to the Pandemic). But the course felt quickly-put-together, a bit disorganized, repetitive, lacking in BTS-content, and I guess most importantly, I just didn't learn much. Perhaps the course would be better suited to brand new photographers. Perhaps I didn't understand that going into it. I apologize to Chris and his team for leaving a negative review, but the course, for me, felt like a poor investment of my money and time. I hope this feedback is helpful in some way. Sending love to you all out there.
So much incredible info.
Danny Skilton
It's insane how much knowledge is packed into this one workshop. Shoutout to Chris for making all this info available. I'm super excited to start locking down a game plan for the next few years regarding my photography business.

Great quick workshop
Lindsay Remigio
I thought this workshop was pretty good! It’s fairly quick and doesn’t take up too much time to complete. The lessons learned don’t just pertain to iPhone photography and can be used for any type of photography. Dan encourages you to get out and practice and try some new things. I also like how it’s taught from his hometown proving you don’t have to go on a grand trip to take great photos.
Great course for both iPhone photos and photography basics alike!
Colleen Goldhorn
Awesome course about working with the camera you have on you 24/7 – your phone. Also loved Dan’s insight into the basics of photography. His notes on composition changed the way I look at a scene, and made me excited to get out and input some of his suggestions into my photos.
