What our customers say

On mushrooms, recipes and photos

Susanne Pfister




Samsung Galaxy S7

Why did you attend the mobile photo-editing workshop?

With a passion for mushrooms and cooking, I decided to combine both in a mushroom cookbook. As well as creating the recipes, I also took the photos myself – just using my smartphone.


Creating the recipes for my mushroom cookbook was relatively easy for me. However, I had little experience of photography and photo editing. During production, my Samsung Galaxy S7 never stopped.

What did you learn?

At the mobile photo-editing workshop, I was introduced to the convenient photo-editing apps for mobile phones. In this two-hour course, we learned how to create amazing photos quickly and easily with a smartphone. The Academy trainers also covered the fundamentals of image composition and picture editing, with details on how to use various accessories.


I only visited the workshop after I had published by book. If I had attended it sooner, I probably would have used a tripod. As it was, I had to constantly hold my breath when I took pictures to make sure they did not blur.
