You have a phone with a camera built in but sometimes those pictures you’re taking don’t quite capture the moment as you envision it should turn out. Frustrating, right? And how are you feeling about your current workflow for taking, editing, sharing, and organizing your photos? Everything good? Or did you just break into a sweat or curl up in the fetal position? I know all the feels, friend. I’ve learned a LOT about all things phone photography over many years of trial and error … and I can’t wait to share with you all that I’ve learned when it comes to taking better pictures, making those photos even better with easy photo editing on your phone, sharing and organizing photos, and all things workflow.

How long do I have to complete the course?
You’ve got as long as you need! The great news is you’ll have unlimited access to the content so you can go at your own pace and come back at any time for a refresher.
Do I have to be logged into the classroom at a certain time to participate in lessons?
Our goal is to make this as easy for you as possible - we know everyone’s schedule is different and time zones aren’t always kind when it comes to allowing us the ability to connect in “real time”. For that reason, all lessons in this course are self-paced and available to you from the day the class is released! No need to worry that you’ll miss a lesson because you aren’t available ... the content will be here when you are.
Can I download the class videos to my computer or mobile device?
The videos for the class are protected within the site and available for viewing whenever you’re logged into your account on your computer or mobile device. While you will not be able to download them, you will have access to them indefinitely so you can review the content whenever you need to.
I don’t have an iPhone - will you be offering a similar class for Android users?
While some of the features of the iPhone may not be available on Android devices (or they may be different), you will absolutely benefit from this class - regardless of the device you’re using! Because the content applies to nearly all mobile camera platforms (and much of it also applies to other non-phone-based cameras), there is no plan to release an Android specific version of the course.
Do I need anything more than my mobile camera to complete this course?
You don’t really NEED anything more than your camera to work through the class material, but we’ll share a few go-to apps that we think you’ll love and some additional product recommendations along the way that will benefit your overall workflow and sharing of the photos you take.
I’m stuck when it comes to how I should organize all of my digital images - will this class help me get that under control?
We feel your pain! That’s why we’ve got plans to teach a full course on digital organization in the future! While this particular class will not take an in-depth approach to overhauling your digital library, there will be lots of information shared to give you the tools you need to create a workflow that will make organizing easier. Becky definitely touches on that in her instruction.
I would love to give this class as a gift. Is that possible?
We’re not sure but we're working on it.
I’ve read through the FAQs and still have a question - who can I ask for help?
We’re here for you! Simply email email@example.com and we’ll do our best to get back to you within 48 hours. We also have a private Facebook group!! As part of the class, you’ll have access to this exclusive group where you can ask questions, share your “lightbulb moments”, chat with other students and connect with the BH Classroom team.
If I purchase the course and later decide that I don’t want it or that it’s not my “cup of tea” can I get a refund?
Once you purchase our course, we are not able to take it back. It’s yours forever... 😉 No worries, you will have as much time as you need to take this class. We will answer any question you feel you didn’t get answered and we will work with you. Bottom line: if you aren’t satisfied, we aren’t satisfied.
“Holy smokes, I learned SO MUCH. Mostly, I loved that Becky taught how to be intentional. I usually just snap away, and I loved delving into my own "why". It's something I hadn't considered before.”Megan Davis
“This course was fantastic! In less then 3 hours, I was able to refresh my memory of skills I had not used, learned new skills, and was motivated to be more intentional in my documenting. Becky covered many aspects of documenting and you could feel her passion. I’m excited to also share it with my children who are getting more interested in documenting.”Doorly Winegar
“This course exceeded my expectations. While I was mostly expecting tips on how to use all the features on the phone, Becky’s sharing of her philosophy of picture taking gave me a refreshing outlook on something that I have enjoyed doing all my life. And she has an amazing way of presenting this in a natural and inspiring way, always emphasizing the student’s individual preferences of doing things.”Wayne Allgaier
“I learned so much about my iPhone that I didn't know existed. I love that she is sharing how to do it with screen-casts of her phone and great video quality showing exactly how to do it. This is the best type of teaching because it allows the student to see exactly how to do it without trying to figure it out on their own with a bunch of technology talk and confusing tutorials. Becky makes it all so easy to learn. ”Jamie Hutchings
