A photo walk with your smartphone in an urban town or village or within the Devon and Somerset countryside. Helping you to learn how to take better photographs with just your smartphone, taught by a qualified professional photographer.


“Forget about it being a phone, think about it being a camera”

— RANKIN, THE GREAT BRITISH PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE

The best camera is the one you have in your hand, for most people that is your smartphone, so let’s use it to capture amazing photos of the local area to help your sense of wellbeing, learn a new skill or just to get out in the fresh air with like-minded people.

I want to be able to share my love of photography with everyone, and highlight that it is not just a professional camera kit that you need to take a beautiful photo, you need to learn to really see.

How does this work?

I will take you on a 2-hour photo walk either in a town or in the countryside. I will teach you how to take better photographs, learn to see how to take better photos and really look at your surroundings.

As part of the workshop I will share

  • Use the settings within your smartphone
  • Take you to points of interest that look great in photographs
  • I will teach you about storytelling with your photos
  • Show you how to take better portraits of yourself or others
  • We will discuss lighting, angles and setups

In the second hour, we will stop for a drink at a cafe or stop for a picnic. I will share how to edit your photographs, apps to use on your phone along with some of my pro editing tips. All the work we do can be from within your own smartphone, which you need to bring along. I will show you which apps are great for editing and tips on how to make your photos look even better.

What you will need

  • Good footwear
  • A sense of adventure
  • Your own smartphone, that is fully charged

If it is raining we will still go ahead with the walk, just bring suitable clothing and footwear

Who is running this workshop?

Hi I am Becky, I have been a professional photographer since 2006 running my own photography business. I have an MA in Photography and teach at Universities and colleges and run my own online courses.

My aim is to empower and enable as many people as possible to enjoy photography and not let the elite costs limit you from being a photographer. I am taking the kit and camera costs away to make it accessible to anyone who has a smartphone
