WS11 – iPhone Photography Explorations

June 19 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Few cameras have changed photography as much as the mobile phone. This hands-on workshop by National Geographic photojournalist Jim Richardson explores the visual storytelling capabilities of this pocket-size communications tool.

  • Learn the fun of taking better photos from a pro.
  • Find out how to connect the photos you take with friends, online platforms, and others who want to see them.
  • Practice your camera’s many functions on-the-spot in a group setting.
  • Discover apps for creating more impactful photos, especially for social media posts.
  • Leave with new tools and proven techniques for improving the stories you tell in personal and professional communications.

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from an international award-winning storyteller who has practiced and taught his craft for over 40 years.


Length: 2.5 hours

Max participants: 100


Materials to bring: Your phone. While the workshop concentrates on iPhones, much of what is taught will be useful no matter what camera you use.

Jim Richardson is a photographer for National Geographic where he has photographed more than 50 stories. Jim’s work has taken him around the world covering issues of the environment, cultures and travel, landscapes, and perils to the night sky. His ongoing coverage of food and agriculture issues has been a centerpiece of National Geographic’s coverage of world food.

Jim is also known for his documentary photography of small towns and rural issues. CBS News Sunday Morning twice profiled his 35 year-long journal of Cuba, Kansas. ABC News Nightline chronicled Jim’s coverage of the Columbia River and the process of assembling the resulting National Geographic Magazine story. Martha Stewart Living and myriad books and magazines have profiled his work. His 1979 study of adolescence, “High School USA,” is now considered a photo essay classic and is used in college classrooms. In 2015, he was honored by his fellow National Geographic photographers as their “Photographer’s Photographer.”
