You love your photos. Your iPhone is always there to take beautiful pictures of your family and friends and the moments you want to save every day.
When you unboxed that iPhone for the first time, you became a photographer. You thought to yourself, "This is so cool!"
Then, suddenly... you find yourself buried in photos. You can’t find “that” picture. You’ve got a zillion albums. And you’re probably running out of space!
And when it comes to all the settings, not to mention syncing your phone to your computer, figuring out iCloud, and getting your Apple Watch to play along - it's all a bit overwhelming, to say the least.
Have you ever found yourself wishing you could make Apple Photos work the way you thought it would? Wondering why it hasn't made your life easier yet? Longing for the days of film and double prints? If this sounds like you...
YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
Some people will say you should give up on the whole Apple ecosystem because it's too complicated.
Nonsense. And here's why...
As a lifelong photographer, an iPhone owner since day one, and a former Apple Genius, I can tell you that none of the other systems offer anything close to the complete iPhone to photobook experience that Apple does.
Once you learn the basics, you will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that your iPhone, your mac, and all the photos are on them are safe and secure. Not only that, but you'll squash those "out of space" alerts for good!
Photography has been a part of my life since I picked up a camera in high school. Along the way I was a travel and outdoor sports photographer, worked in the printing industry, and was an early Photoshop adopter. I've represented some of the leading digital photography studios before joining Apple as a member of both Genius and Creative teams. Throughout my career I have trained clients and the public on photography, digital photo organizing, desktop publishing and Apple software applications. I love working with people to delight and empower them through the creative use of technology.
