“Heidi and I are so excited to show people how simple it is to use their phones to take amazing pictures and then use them in new ways.”

Jessica Sprague, founder, instructor and designer at, and Heidi Swapp, designer, teacher and author are teaming up for a one-of-a-kind cell phone camera class - {Mo}tography: Rock Your Camera Phone.

During the eight day class, Jessica Sprague will use her legendary video-based instruction to walk users through over a dozen of the best photo apps for cell phones, showing how to get the most out of each and how they work together to create amazing photos.

After each of the app lessons, master crafter Heidi Swapp will show how she combines techniques to create truly gorgeous photo creations. Users will create three different "hybrid" (printable papercrafting) projects.

“In the past year or so we have seen a real shift in people using their cell phones as a way to preserve memories. Things have changed so quickly that it can be intimidating to know exactly where to start, what apps are best and what to do with the pictures” said Jessica Sprague. “Heidi and I are so excited to show people how simple it is to use their phones to take amazing pictures and then use them in new ways.”

Class participants will learn:

  •     The ins and outs of Instagram and how to use Instas in regular digital and papercrafting
  •     Secrets and ideas for filters, frames, text and icons for every kind of photograph
  •     How to create and install cell phone wallpaper and place a gallery of Instagrams on a blog
  •     How to send, share, and print photos like never before - including how to send photos from a camera straight to a computer or home printer, or upload them to a printing service to create prints and photo books.
  •     Extend photos with collages, fonts, and even motion as we explore the creative uses of phones as storytelling devices.

In addition to the classroom, which contains video-based instructions and downloadable PDFs to help users follow along, the class features a private forum to ask and answer questions. The class will use Instagram and hashtags to create an ad-hoc, live-in-the-making gallery for all users to enjoy.

{Mo}tography: Rock Your Camera Phone begins on November 8th with a live webshow hosted by Jessica and Heidi to introduce the class, give out prizes and freebies and introduce a class-long hashtag game. Click here to learn more and to register.
