Dan Burkholder: The Exquisite iPhone Photograph
Creating Beautiful, Intriguing Photographs with your iPhone and iPad

APG is thrilled to have Dan Burkholder for this 3 session online workshop. Dan is recognized as one of contemporary photography’s pioneers and one of the first photographers to see the iPhone as a serious option for the fine art photographer.

The way we use our iPhones to photograph advances almost daily. This workshop introduces you to new ways to shoot, edit and stylize your photos, taking you from casual captures to inspiring artwork.

Your every iPhone Artistry urge will have time to flex and stretch, learning the latest skills that empower you to craft images that you’ll be proud to share, exhibit and sell. And, yes, you’ll learn when it is time to pick up a larger camera for specific tasks, yet still use your iPhone or iPad to edit these photos, too.

  • From perfectly straight landscapes to painterly effects and portraits, learn how to steer your iPhone images in a direction that mirrors your personal vision.
  • Learn how to delve into those family history projects you’ve been putting off for years. You’ll finally turn that shoebox of tiny prints and negatives into expressive (and shareable) memories.
  • Learn the benefits of shooting both jpegs and Raw files. There’s no right or wrong in this workshop but you need to know which is right for you.
  • And if you like to shoot with a “bigger” camera, learn how easy it is to move your images to your iPhone/iPad for editing and sharing. Your travel photography will never be the same!
  • Discover the best way to convert color images to tonally rich black and white.
  • Learn how easy it is to blend multiple images for stunning effects, all in the palm of your hand.
  • Discover the best ways to prepare your iPhone for web, print and even book creation.

You’ll leave this class with a renewed passion for your iPhone Artistry!

Prerequisites: Participants should use an iPhone 11 or newer (or an iPad 6 or newer*) with at least 12GB of available space. A “Preparing for Class” letter (with a list of apps to have installed) will be sent to participants before the workshop begins.

* iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd generation and later), iPad Pro 11-inch, iPad Air (3rd generation and later), iPad (6th generation and later), and iPad mini (5th generation or later)

Instructor’s Bio

Dan Burkholder has a long history of looking beyond the photographic horizon to invent, teach and exhibit the next great thing in imaging. His book, iPhone Artistry (Pixiq Press, 2012), was the universe’s first 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. Dan’s seminal 1994 book Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing opened doors for legions of photographers wishing to combine the warmth and charm of the handmade print with the power of digital imaging.
Dan 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.
