iPHONEOGRAPHY // Snapshot to Heirloom


Next class starts TBD
Registration opens TBD
Teacher Ashleigh Peak
Sponsored by Artifact Uprising

Learn to see the everyday minutia of your life as pieces of a larger mosaic or grid, and turn that mosaic into an artful documentation of your month, year, and life that will then become tangible heirlooms for you and those you love to treasure.

In this three-week iPhoneography course, you will learn how to appreciate and fully experience your everyday life and turn those experiences into printed art, all using your iPhone. You’ll not only become better at taking iPhone photos, but focus on creating them in order to have a tangible heirloom that documents your days.

Each student in this class will receive a kit and guidance to create a beautiful, handmade photo box sized to hold 12 sets of 25 Artifact Uprising prints – one set for each month of the year – leaving you at the end of the year with a tangible heirloom created from your iPhone. You can also use this process to make a photo book, wall display or curated Instagram feed that brings your daily, monthly and yearly photos into your every day life tangibly and beautifully.

This course will also cover technical skills, such as how to properly expose in your environment, how to refine your composition, and how to use VSCO, focusing primarily on how to engage and be inspired by all the senses as you document digitally. You will learn how to organize your mobile iPhone camera roll so that creating art is extremely easy, lightweight, and not time-consuming.

This course includes a $20 Artifact Uprising gift certificate for a set of  25 square photo prints, and a kit to create a beautiful, wooden photo box.

WEEK THREE: Organizing your iPhone workflow and photos so the process is joyful instead of overwhelming and printing is simple. Bring your photos into your every day life in a tangible and organized manner by creating a handmade photo box that will hold 12 sets of 25 Artifact Uprising prints. Explore further ideas for a photo book, wall display, or curated Instagram feed.

The Schedule

All participation and interaction for this class will take place in a private online forum. (Registered students will receive instructions on how to access the forum a few days before class begins.)

On the first Monday of class, Ashleigh will share Lesson 1 in the forum and e-mail it to every student. She will also be available during the week to answer questions and facilitate discussions in the forum as you read and work through your lessons.

Homework will be due on Sunday and critiques/reviews will take place the following Monday. Each week will follow the same pattern.

The beauty of this class and every other class at DEFINE is that you can read, practice, and participate throughout the week whenever it is convenient for you- from any timezone, anywhere you have Internet access, at any time of day. Most students spend 3-5 hours per week “in class.”

If you have any questions please feel free to email

This class would also benefit business owners who would like a more beautiful or consistent Instagram feed. No prior photography knowledge necessary.
