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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
“Wow! Becky Higgins poured her heart and so much awesomeness in to the BH Classroom Photo Tips + Workflow course! I literally have no words to express how much this course has just changed my photo taking and memory keeping life! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”Heather Tucker
“Thank you Becky! This course is wonderful and answers so many long time questions and gives so much knowledge. You are clear, speak slowly enough to keep along and give easy to understand examples. And thank you for NOT having any cheesy background music!!! Your clean, simple, classic style shows through. Worth every penny. Five star rating ! <3”Leslie Tobin
“All of Becky's tips and suggestions are so simple and do-able, but have already made such a difference in how I take pictures, edit them, and decide what to keep. I have now started a folder with each of my children through iCloud Photo Sharing and they are sharing back to me as well. This is definitely a process, but it's not as overwhelming as I originally thought. Thank you for giving me the confidence to 'BEGIN with the end in mind'!”Becca Stephenson
“I found the content so so helpful. I moved from an android to an 8plus during the course so have double the learning experience and go back and back over the videos. I have made a folder for all the printed material and will go into it step by step to solidify my learning. I love the many levels of learning the course provides and how it all moves forward at my pace. Awesome Becky and your wonderful team. Shout out to Wendy!!”Pam Arthur
“I wanted to let you know that I took the photo tips and workflow class and it really inspired me to start some new habits when taking pictures with my phone. It also has helped me open my eyes to capturing the moments that are happening in front of me and not making my son or others look at me and smile. I can't wait to see what future classes you all offer! Thank you all for creating this class and being so passionate about your careers.”@stephaniehitz
