Over a stretch of several months, I’ve developed this online mobile art course just for you, giving it my heart and soul, and infusing it with fresh and exciting content, inspiration, and creative techniques.

Check out the unique approach I took to make this really special for you!…

Mobile Art Mastery: Developing the Visual Poet Within

This online course is all about creating extraordinary, richly-layered images with your iPhone (or iPad, or iPod Touch), using combinations of everyday snapshots from photo assignments I give you and the best photography and post-editing apps out there.

What I think you will especially love is how we go on photo adventures together (with video footage of me out and about exploring the assignments myself), and then work through the images in our “digital art studio” (via our iPhone devices), creating to our heart’s content!

You’ll get 10 core lessons (fresh, unique projects) that teach new skill sets and build upon those previously-taught, continually taking the ideas in new directions — so as to develop the unique digital artist within you. Indeed, there are nearly 70 video tutorials altogether (across a variety of styles: landscape, portrait, still life, street photography, urban grunge and more), as well as extensive written notes and resource lists, and tons of fabulous bonus material and freebies! I’ve even set up a private Facebook group, just for the class members.

Understand:  This course is not about merely pressing a button, adding a filter, and calling it done. It’s about showing you new, clever ways to use top-notch apps, and not always in ways that you would expect. You’ll also be getting a ‘fly on the wall’ direct view into my creative process and work flow. And most importantly, in developing your own approach, you’ll learn how to trust and follow your own artistic instincts while engrossed in the creative process.

You can sign up right now and gain access to the class immediately, and you can take it all entirely at your own pace and review as often as you like since you will have Lifetime Access to all the content.

Check out this short video I’ve put together for you, sharing a taste of the course (if you are on a smartphone, turn phone sideways to view in landscape mode)…

Won’t you join me in your own process of creative self-discovery, to become the mobile art master you were always meant to be?

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!


On the value of self-portraiture…

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.


iColorama Creative PLUS is like a magic show with Susan and Nicki, the magicians who open up a new world for you to explore.

If you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall to see how one of your favorite artists works, an online course is definitely the next best thing to being there. For me, presentation, professionalism and ease of understanding are as important as content and with Susan’s course I got all that and more. Susan delivers her lessons in an organized and easy to follow format. Susan definitely knows her stuff… and I am SO happy she’s willing to share it with us so we can improve our own work and be inspired to move beyond the mundane to the magical! ~Geri Centonze

I've been an artist my whole life, but this journey via Susan Tuttle's course has opened the flood gates and has expanded the possibilities. Sooo many ideas. Crazy! Simply crazy!

It's a total life changer...really!!! ~Maryjane O'Connor

Susan’s work is brilliant and her 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! 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 Susan on the recognition of her work and for creating this awesome course. ~Rad Drew


I’m an artist who studied Visual Arts at Brown University. I currently have an iPhone 6 Plus and am fascinated by how powerful of a creative tool it is. My art training is primarily in abstract mixed media painting, so I wanted to take a course in iPhoneography to be able to translate my ideas into digital art with my iPhone. Susan’s courses have been incredibly informative and inspiring! I absolutely adore her work, and thanks to her background as a teacher, her explanations are simple and clear. The techniques she demonstrates work well for all sorts of mobile photography, and I have been able to apply them to every single image I edit for my Instagram gallery. I’m a huge fan of Susan Tuttle’s teachings and photo art! ~Shuko Kawase


I admire Susan’s photography immensely. Her images are simply stunning and are filled with so much soulfulness. When I was wanting to begin a ‘self portrait’ series honoring my mom’s life (wearing her vintage coat from the 1950s), I was thrilled to discover Susan’s course The Art of iPhoneography Self-Portraiture. Her course is fabulous – the layout of the course and the content of the videos are very clear, wonderfully presented, and inspiring. I was able to learn many tools and techniques with the apps she suggested and the guidance she provided, and I felt that I had all that I needed (including the confidence) to embark on my self portrait series. Heartfelt thank you, Susan! ~Lee Atwell


I really can’t say enough about Susan Tuttle’s courses. I LOVE them. Her sites are easy to navigate, her voice is just lovely and soothing, and the ideas and passion and encouragement of play is what keeps me going back. ~Robin Robertis


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


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

Thank you Susan for opening my eyes and giving my brain a real good massage with your concise and expert instruction videos. ~Patty Szymkowicz


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 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


It was quite engaging and well-paced, and I learned a lot. ~Shandi Brewster


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 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
