Co-Lab Online Workshop


With nothing more than your iPhone, you can create astonishing beauty, from simple minimalist black and whites… to rich, layered compositions… even while standing in line at the grocery store or hanging out at your favorite coffee shop.

Now, take mixed-media painting. In this day and age there is a plethora of products which painters even 50 years ago would have swooned over! — paints, washes, pens, gesso, and more to help you unleash your creativity!

Want to make magic!?… Imagine being able to combine these two worlds of photography and painting with everyday iPhone snapshots, photography apps, lush and colorful paints, pens, markers, beads, wax crayons, paper cut-outs and more! Want to know more!?…

I am thrilled to tell you about an iPhoneography + Mixed Media online workshop called CO-LAB: PAINT, PAPER and iPHONEOGRAPHY MAGIC, which mixed-media artist and best-selling author Alena Hennessy and I have created together!

There is so much rich content in this course — it’s like having two courses in one!

Not only do Alena and I share with you tons of tips, techniques, approaches, and video tutorials, we make it a point to empower our students to become the confident, creative, and expressive artists they’ve longed to be!

If you would love to revel in the tactile delight of paintbrush and pen and marker (and a sweeping array of other art materials) … and if you have a smartphone or tablet (an iPhone, iPad, or even an iPod Touch) and if you love creating great photographic art … then don’t hesitate…

You can sign up right NOW and gain access to the class immediately, and you will have LIFETIME ACCESS to the content! Sign in and work whenever it is convenient for you and work at your own pace.


Your inner artist is just waiting to burst forth, in full bloom. Won’t you join us!?

My iPhoneography online workshop, The Art of iPhoneography Self-Portraiture, is currently available through the website Photoshop Artistry!

This online workshop is all about creating extraordinary images with nothing but an iPhone (or iPod Touch or iPad if that’s your preference). Whether you do portraits or self-portraits, it covers how to capture pro-quality images and then edit and manipulate them by stacking the right apps (in the right order) to create stunning creative compositions. Note: The techniques covered in the lessons can apply to practically any type of iPhone image.

And it’s more than even that, actually.

Because what you really get is an inside look at how I THINK through my images, all the while encouraging you to take the art of self-portraiture and use it to further yourself as an artist … and turn your everyday life into an adventure of self-discovery.

You can sign up right now and gain access to the class immediately, work at your own pace, and you will have LIFETIME ACCESS to the content!


I was recently asked the question by fellow iPhoneographer and author, Bob Weil, “What value do you think self-portraiture has to the whole person as an approach to self-understanding and (dare I say it), self-love?” and this was my response…

Having a body is such a gift! Through our bodily form and our senses we are able to experience the beauty of the world and give of ourselves to others. We can share and receive love through the power of a simple touch, take in the breathtaking colors of the sky at sunset, inhale deeply the heavenly scent of a peony, be enraptured by the mellifluous tones of a symphony, and taste layers and bursts of delicious flavor in a dish so carefully and lovingly prepared. Self-portraiture celebrates this gift of the human body, which when you boil it down, is really a celebration of life. And, when you set aside all notions of what society says is physically beautiful (which is unattainable anyway) and focus instead on what it means to experience life through a form, a shift in thinking takes place. I’d like to think this comes through in my self-portraits and I’d like to invite others to open themselves to this type of thinking and explore the art of self-portraiture as a celebration of their life on this earth.

Enjoy this short video I’ve put together for you, with examples of my self-portraiture. The apps and techniques I use to create these types of pieces will be shared in my course! Won’t you join me in your own process of self-discovery, in your own celebration of life?

I signed up this morning and after going out to take some Autumn photos, I planted myself in front of the computer to start going through the Fundamentals part of the course. Let me say that you and Alena have charmed me………the music, your voices, and the creativity from both of you is exactly what I needed to kick-start my lazy ‘muse’. Although I take photos a LOT, my painting/mixed media has been on ‘hold’ for a few months……this course is just the perfect fit. ~Jan DeBellis

I am so excited about a new class I’m enrolled in, that combines mixed media with iPhoneography! Co-Lab with Susan Tuttle and Alena Hennessy, both masters of their art! I think it’s going to be an epic chance to really stretch my artistry! ~Jana Holden

I’m so excited, I’m just about jumping out of my skin! I can tell how much thought and energy Susan and Alena have put into the course and how first class it is. Thank you. ~Anneke Van Couvering

I’ve taken Susan’s iPhoneography self-portrait course and A Year of Painting with Alena, and I’m over-the-moon excited to do a mash-up!!! ~Lara Cornell

I took Susan’s self-portrait iPhoneography course and it changed my life! It helped me to learn and understand a number of wonderful apps to work with and showed me how to take the best self-portraits in a variety of different settings. I learned about lighting, posing, and turning those okay photos into pieces of art! Most of all though, I learned to love my body, despite all my perceived imperfections. I found myself amazed at times that the photos I manipulated were actually me! I had learned how to accentuate the good. I would recommend this class to anyone who has a smartphone and wants to add a little flavor to their life! ~Louise Duhamel

I never thought in a million years that I would be comfortable with self-portraitures, but in Susan’s iPhoneography workshop, The Art of iPhoneography Self-Portraiture, she teaches us self-love, and so much more about ourselves. It truly is an intimate workshop on getting in touch with self. ~Susan Freise

Absolutely THRILLED about Susan’s iPhoneography self-portrait course! not so much because it’s about selfies [gulp], but because Susan Tuttle teaching an iPhoneography course, in my books, is not to be missed … she is MASTERFUL in the medium. This will be my 3rd online course with Susan … she completely totally utterly ROCKS as a teacher and I have no doubt she’s just about to change my [iPhone] world … and quite possibly my personal world, too. ~Christi Carter

I love this woman, I love her work, and I couldn’t sign up for her self-portrait course fast enough. Susan’s images evoke such emotion, I am excited to use my own self as a study in artistic portraiture, and with her as a guide, what a gift. ~Stacy De La Rosa

Your work with self portraits is brilliant and your course is awesome — instructionally sound, well designed, clear and easy to follow and chock full of tips, tricks and techniques of value to both the novice and the veteran iPhoneographer. If you’re looking to explore your creative spirit and build your repertoire of skills, this is a great place to start!  In just the first couple of lessons I’ve learned new things that I will apply in the work I do. And although, I’ve only taken the occasional selfie, I’m inspired to dig more deeply into that! iPhone work has been a huge part of my photo repertoire since 2010 and it always amazes me how many different creative paths we have all taken with it. Congratulations to you on your recognition for your work and for creating this awesome course. ~Rad Drew

I have been following Susan Tuttle since at least 2006. I have seen her continually grow as an artist, and watched her come out with one great book after another, and get published in different magazines. I absolutely love her work. And now she has this course that involves photos taken with your iPhone and magically turns your smart phone into a convenient place to manipulate or create masterpieces wherever you are. This is easily the most up to date, state-of-the-art, amazing, brilliant, out of this world approach to creating art I have ever seen. ~Patti Koosed

Susan, this is the first of several online photography effects classes I’ve taken and the very first I found clear and doable. Thank you! I look forward to more of your classes. Just ordered your Photo Craft book and am very excited about reading and following it. ~Kathleen McSweeney

I’m sure you get this a lot, but I have found no one that even comes close to your online teaching skills. And you always keep things fresh and exciting! Photoplay – a great example; what a great class! ~Susan Freise

I owe so much to Susan in how I choose to edit and enhance my photographs, and have loved every class I’ve taken from her! If you ever have the opportunity to take one of Susan’s classes, don’t hesitate…you won’t regret it! She’s great! ~Diane Cook

Thank you, Susan, for sharing your knowledge. I was needing a little creative pick-me-up and I got it! Your classes are always clear and concise (this from a retired school teacher) and I always get so much out of them. Thank you! ~Lois Reynolds Mead

Thanks so much for sharing your techniques! I am a high school photography teacher and I plan to use some of your techniques with my students. ~Joleen Roe
