Want to become a pro with your smartphone camera? This hands-on workshop will set you on that path. Combining discussion and demonstration with the iPhone Camera, Susan and Neil Silverman will share their photography experience with you.


We will discuss the technical aspects of the phone settings and will also inspire and mentor on how to MAKE a great photo, not just take a snapshot. The phone cameras are powerful devices and we will share tips on how to make the most of it. This will be an interactive class that will teach you the intricacies of creating and saving photos that you’ll want to share, print, and will help preserve memories of special people, events, and journeys.

Susan and Neil Silverman are a husband and wife team who have been “captured” with photography for over twenty-five years --(teaching, leading workshops and working professionally in many venues). They have taught for the Santa Fe Photo Workshops, Gualala Art Center, Santa Rosa Junior College, Pacific Northwest Art School, Pt Reyes Field Institute, Great American Photography Workshop (GAPW), B&H Photo, PPC, PPWC, WPPI, Better Photo as well as many Photo Clubs and organizations. They have presented several podcasts and have been interviewed by several broadcasting stations. Sharing knowledge, experiences and camaraderie is as meaningful as “getting the shot”. Their work has appeared as the cover of Outdoor Photography, in Elle Magazine, der Spiegel, Sierra Club, the Cure, Audubon, Nikon World, Press Democrat, San Francisco Chronicle and many more. As photographers they realize that the light reveals itself in meaningful ways— on the camera, as a visual awakening, as an awesome moment in time and as a kindling of spirit and soul.
