ABOUT AMBER PACE & JAN EASTON
Hi, I’m Amber, the lead photographer behind Social Media Photographers. Along with my business partner Jan Easton we are on a mission to help creatives and creativity seekers take better photos, with your smartphone.
With over 10 years of professional photography experience, even I get tired sometimes of lugging around my big SLR camera and lenses. Over the past few years I often find myself reaching for the phone camera instead. Anyone can take amazing phone camera photos with the right training and practice. I love helping people unlock the power of their phone camera so they can share beautiful images on social media.
**Warning**: I like to bring a bit of humour to my work and take full responsibility for all the witty puns and jokes you will be subjected to in my workshops and on my social media feeds (the not so funny jokes I blame on Jan). Most days you will find us either helping others master the art of photography for social media or behind the lens in our pop-up studio creating content for ourselves and our clients. When I am not working, you will often find me and my family exploring the waterfront, camera in one hand and possibly an ice cream in the other.
- Each attendee will leave this session armed with the knowledge and motivation to style and capture better phone photos.
- We will also give you some handy reference worksheets to help keep you on track.
- Workshop graduates are also invited to join the exclusive SMP Phone Camera Club on Facebook (at no extra charge) where you will get ongoing tips, tricks and constructive feedback on your phone camera images.
- It’s recommended that all attendees have a smart phone with a working camera.
- Photography skill improves with training and practice so the workshop includes participants taking photos and critiquing them to look for what works and areas for improvement.
