We will start our journey at the entrance of the Venice Pier, after introducing yourself we will talk about the locations we will get to see during our journey in Venice Beach and for those of you using your phones I will suggest certain apps and principles that will bring your photos to the next level. I will give one on one time with everyone as my goal is to teach you how to take great images while having fun.

I have been living in Venice Beach for 25 years while working in visual effects and animation, i have worked on multiple Academy Award winning movies like Titanic, Independence day and recently Spider-man. During that time, I began my journey into photography applying the visual aspects I learned from my industry. Framing, Lighting and most of all compelling images. My work has been exhibited in London, Santa Monica, San Francisco and also purchased by National Geographic. I speak English and French.

Where you'll be

Starting from the Venice Pier we will go to the Iconic Venice Canals with those beautiful bridge over water, then we will make our way to the Venice sign, famous graffiti and also the Skateboard pack. After exploring this area we will make our way down the beautiful beach for some life guard tower and Palm tree photography. We will end up where we started to shoot my favorite Venice Pier. We will also discuss image processing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 12 reviews.

Stephane is a caring, professional, talented and knowledgeable iPhonology (mobile and traditional camera) instructor. I had no idea which apps could give me the best 1:1 photo editing outcome but Stephane was open to share and showed me several quality tips he uses. This was my birthday gift to myself and it was worth every penny! He’s a really nice man also and knows much about he history of Venice. He’s a Must Go Do! Enjoy the beauty of Venice/LA! 📸❤️

Stephane teaches you how to take your digital photography to a whole new level. He is very knowledgeable in the technical aspects of photography and he genuinely loves what he does.

Hands down one of the best Experiences I have taken. Stephane is a true expert, warm and inviting from the word go. As a solo female - I felt like I was with a long-time friend. He has crafted such a brilliant combination of adventure, sightseeing, and education manifesting in genuine skills that will last far beyond the few hours you spend with him. I'm not going to buy a schmancy camera, so Stephane was super clear how easy it was for me to learn how to master my IPhone with a few pro-tips and three easy apps. Total game-changers. Even as a local, I loved getting up early and exploring the pier and canals with a photographic lense. At the end, I got some incredible shots but more importantly, it transformed the way I look at what is possible in the realm of photography. Can't recommend enough.

Amazing experience and would highly recommend. I feel like I can do so much now with my iPhone that I didn't before. Really inspired me to invest more time into digital photography going forward. Thanks Stephane!

Very knowledgable in photography. Learned new stuff about my mirrorless camera, how to take better pictures on the iPhone, and new ways/techniques to edit my pictures!
