Your mission is very powerful and is at the heart of your experience during the Creative Smartphone Photography Masterclass. It guides you and gives you a strong reason for everything you do. It also makes it crystal clear what your outcome will be at the end of the program if you perform all the steps.
Here it is:
"Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to develop your "photographer's eye", master your smartphone camera and produce a superb collection of original photos under nine inspiring themes in just nine weeks, to impress your friends and be extremely proud of."
How does that sound? Pretty cool, right? So, do you accept? Go for it, and I'll be there to support you every step of the way, right up to... Mission Accomplished!
HIGHLY MOTIVATINGOur Goals are great! Why? Because they motivate you without stressing you out. It's true!
We use goals because they are high motivators and it's great fun to achieve them. But we are all about positivity here at Infinite Creativity NOW so we don't want you getting stressed out or even feeling that you haven't achieved any goal by the end of the program. That's not how we roll :-D
YOU SET YOUR OWN GOALS!So there are three goals you can set - yes, you read that right - YOU set your own goals! I will guide you of course, but the idea is that with three goals - at three different levels, everyone will at least reach the first one.
THREE LEVELS TO CHOOSE FROMAnd it's perfectly fine to decide that you only want to aim for the Level 1 goal on your first time through the program. This might be because you have limited time, or just want to go at an easy pace - perfect, we've got you!
Or you might want to go crazy and head for the heights of your Level 3 goal, and if you dont' get it you'll probably still pass Level 2 easily. Fun fun fun!
And of course, the middle Level 2 goal is the one you might aim for if you have plenty of time to study and practise at a normal rate, which is still perfectly relaxed and doable, rest assured about that :-)

Have you ever felt that? Are you disappointed when you see that your pictures taken on your shiny new toy are blurry or dull or badly composed or just downright boring?
Do you wish you could inject some magic sparkle and desperately needed punch into your sad snaps?
Would you like people to look at your photos taken on your humble (but actually incredible) smartphone and be amazed at your creativity, your imagination, your... stunning artistic mastery?!
If so, you're in the right place. That's what my unique Creative Smartphone Photography Masterclass is all about.
A lot of people think that to take great photos:
FALSE BELIEF No.1: You need an official diploma - NO!
FALSE BELIEF No.2: You need years of experience - NO!
FALSE BELIEF No.3: You need an expensive camera - NO!
FALSE BELIEF No.4: You need to be a professional photographer - NO!
FALSE BELIEF No.5: You need to come from an artistic background - NO!
The Truth Is...
All you need to create truly stunning images today is...
1) A love for taking pictures and being creative - ✿ YES ✔
2) A modern smartphone, like the one in your pocket or hand right now - ✿ YES ✔
3) A desire to learn basic and advanced techniques through an exciting and fun approach - ✿ YES ✔
And that's it! If you are reading this, you probably have all three already and you are ready to turn your sad snaps into mini-masterpieces you love and share with pride. And you will! Let's continue the story...
When a Paris photo tour client lay her new iPhone on the café table back in 2007 and casually started scrolling through her holiday pics, my jaw dropped! I knew then photography had changed forever.
No more heavy cameras to lug around, a delightfully discrete device and instant sharing of images... There were no apps back in those days, of course, the cameras were terribly basic, the quality awful, and no-one knew what they were doing.
Today, almost everything's changed. The quality is superb, there are many advanced features, and apps allow endless post-processing fun. And... people still don't know how to create stunning images.
Great pictures always start in the imagination, well before clicking. We sometimes call this the "photographer's eye". Today's smartphones can then perform their own miracles. The Creative Smartphone Photography Masterclass uniquely develops our photographer's eye and melds it with our device's capabilities to make this the only photography training you will ever need. Read on to discover the details!
I've been a passionate photographer since setting up a darkroom and portrait studio in my bedroom back in the late 1980s, over 30 years ago! I started running Paris photo tours for enthusiasts from all over the world and making short photo analysis videos in the early 2000s when I was using my good old Nikon SLRs. The idea for creating my own photography course was already brewing but I always wanted it to be something exceptional and I never felt the time was right. Until now.
The Creative Smartphone Photography Masterclass is the culmination of three decades of artistic endeavour, and is intended to be the only photographic training most enthusiasts will ever need.
Although I use the word smartphone in the title, that's simply because most people have one these days and they are actually really good cameras. The core of what you will be learning and practising applies to everyone, whatever sort of device you happen to be holding in your hands.
Capturing Hearts & Minds
Great photos are made in the hearts and minds of the photographers before any dials are set or buttons are pressed. I will be showing you how to call on your life experience to inject true passion and pathos into your shots to take them to deeper levels of meaning and impact.
Having said that, I'm a great fan of modern technology and we will be making sure you are perfectly familiar with your smartphone camera as well as the essential techniques and apps you can use to experience the same sort of post-processing thrill I got from playing around in my bedroom darkroom so many years ago.
Awaken Your Sleeping Creative Genius
I've been a dedicated Paris photo chronicler (publishing images and words) for many years now, but I want to stress that all my pictures on this page, taken and played with on a standard smartphone, are just examples to inspire you and give you ideas. I won't be telling you or teaching you to take photos like me or in my style. One of my main aims is to help you find YOUR style, which probably won't be anything like mine, and that's great!
By the end of this masterclass, your way of looking at the world will have changed forever. You will be able to imagine wonderful, striking shots wherever you are, and have the technical and artistic skills to turn your visions into reality. Perhaps most importantly, you will become more sensitive to people and things around you. You will be able to sense slight changes in light and atmosphere and people's moods and anticipate future possibilities, reacting to them accordingly. Photography isn't just about pretty pictures; it's about pretty much everything.
That's a great question and I'm excited to explain.
Experience Product® is a registered US trademark which is exclusively licensed to program creators who have successfully taken in-depth practical training lasting several months.
Experience Products like the Creative Smartphone Photography Masterclass are unlike any other training programs. They incorporate every possible modern learning technique and brain-friendly strategy proven to hugely increase motivation and ensure a far greater completion rate.
Without giving too much away, you will be excited and engaged from the moment you join the program. You'll decide on your own personal target and will be supported in reaching it every step of the way.
Your Masterclass is highly interactive, enjoyable and doable, offering constant small wins to keep you moving along to "mission accomplished", which will be celebrated appropriately. No-one gets left behind and unexpected surprises are just one more element that adds to this unique creative experience.
You will also discover my own original (and colourful) motivational systems, like the Creativity Cycle and the Rainbow Mountain Method, but that's enough for now; you'll have fun finding out about those in due course!
In this exciting introductory module, we look at what photography is, from a technical point of view but more importantly how it allows us to express ourselves powerfully and emotionally.
We discuss the vital relationship between the creative process (having amazing ideas) and the productive process (turning them into tangible realities everyone can enjoy). We also consider the place photography holds in the wider field of art in general - it's fascinating!
We define your project "mission" together this week too, and as a highly practical course, you will be taking photos and developing your shooting skills from Day 1. Let's do this thing!
In our fundamentals module, you first get thoroughly familiar with the basic camera controls then delve into all the hidden features which can totally transform the look of your shots - for the better - but which most people don't even know exist.
We also step into the wonderful world of smartphone photo apps. Some of these are essential for any serious photographer, and deal with fine-tuning and correcting your raw images. Others offer infinite ways of turning your pictures into incredible works of art, all from the palm of your hand. You also learn which to avoid like the plague! You are now officially ready to join the ranks of the smartphone imaging elite!
In this intermediate-level module, we cover essential artistic concepts. These include choosing and highlighting the subject, and understanding the many elements which go to make a well-composed, striking and memorable shot.
You will fill your photographer's toolbox with countless techniques and tricks to call on when necessary or appropriate in a wide range of shooting situations.
This is your core module, and by the end of it you will already be taking pictures far superior to 95% of the average happy snapping public. But the cool thing is... the best is yet to come!
In our powerful advanced-level module - which you will be perfectly prepared for by what's come before, don't worry - we lift the veils on "seeing the invisible" and letting your imagination fly. Magic happens here!
This is one of the most exciting parts of the course, because you discover how to get rid of unsuspected limits and restrictions which have been holding your incredible potential back and let the genius out.
We are all innately creative creatures - it's in the name! Our lives improve immeasurably when we are respecting and honouring this truth by bringing beautiful new images into being daily. And it's only a virtual click away!
In our final fast and fun module, you put it all together in one exciting explosion of impressive artistic endeavour. Hearts and souls are moved here!
This is also where you reach Mission Accomplished and "graduate", by presenting your finished work for all to see and for you to be proud of!
This can simply be done online in the friendly atmosphere of our private group to your fellow masterclass adventurers or as an actual real photo exhibition with your actual pictures on real walls being seen by an invited audience of actual real people of your choice... or both. You will be so proud and I will too!
There has never been an online challenge quite like this one, nor will there be again. It's unique, as you are, and as your selfies should be too!
In as little as five fun-packed days (or as long as you like, it's entirely up to you), transform your sad selfies into stunningly artistic self-portraits that really say something meaningful about you and that you will be proud to share.
Your Stunning Selfies for Social Media Pack includes: 5 Detailed Videos / 3 Facebook Live recordings / 5 PDFs / 5 Audio recordings / 5 Cheat Sheets. You will never look at yourself the same way again!
Sit down with almost legendary Paris photo chronicler, perplexing poet, intriguing abstract artist and future romantic-bridge-squatting musical drum bonger (see below, it will all become terribly clear...) - err, that would be me, folks - for an hour's coaching on making your photos the best they can possibly be... on your terms! We can cover any other creative topic you like too. This is what I do.
As your creativity coach, my underlying principle is that if you are happy with your photos... then they are, by definition, great photos! So my real aim is to help you like your photos more, and more, and more! As you continue to develop and find your unique style, plenty of other people will start to love what you do too!
Then I'll have one more reason to be proud of our work together.
Whilst being under no false illusions whatsoever as to the value of my work - it is what it is - I can at least say one thing with reasonable certainty: I write prose and poetry, photograph, paint and ponder on a very regular basis.
As one simple soul to another, I'd like to offer you direct access to everything vaguely significant I've ever seen fit to put out there.
My motto is Learn ~ Create ~ Share, and it's a cycle with no beginning and no end. When we create, we feel wonderful and we want to spread our joy widely. Others will like and learn from what we share and often be inspired to create and share in their turn. I call this the Creativity Cycle - and it's open to all - wanna play?
When you choose to join the Creative Smartphone Photography Masterclass you are setting yourself a challenge (and of course accepting it too): to produce and present an impressive collection of original photos under nine inspiring themes in just nine weeks. If you complete all the exercises in the program you will achieve your goal. I guarantee it.
As your photography and creativity coach, my objective is your success, and that means you reaching this exciting goal you set for yourself, with my help, at the start of this Masterclass. I don't believe in failure - every action and effort is a positive thing. But I do understand that life happens. Despite our uniquely motivating and highly supportive approach, unforeseen events can sometimes temporarily distract us. That's why I guarantee I will support you personally until you reach an outcome you are fully satisfied with. You are here to take your photography to an entirely different level. If you follow our fun and inspiring process, I guarantee you will succeed!
“Sab was always supportive in his feedback. I learned a lot!”
The challenge was so much fun because I got to play and experiment with photography. I'd never known how to make my photos more interesting but the tips and insider knowledge that Sab shared got me excited. Even though I was quite busy I always found time to do the homework and it became a highlight in my day. By the end of the challenge I was getting an eye for bringing more creativity, interest and personality into my photography. I'm inspired to continue taking interesting and unusual shots.
5-Day Photo Challenge, January 2020
“I no longer share the same, boring shots as I used to.”
The videos and instructions were fun, to the point, filled with ideas and tips to better our photos. They triggered my imagination and inspired me to create. And they ended with an actionable step which I love. The group is welcoming and supportive. Lots of ideas there. A true place of inspiration and connection. I am so glad I did the challenge. It has made a huge difference in my confidence as well. And it was relaxed, plus I had loads of fun.
5-Day Photo Challange, January 2020
“The videos are very informative and include a lot of examples.”
Great for beginners because this takes a lot of stress away and it provides inspiration. The group was really awesome, participating and commenting, and all this because the maestro Sab was subtly pushing and inspiring us in his own unique way. The selfies challenge came at a perfect time for me and empowered me on my growth journey. I feel I can produce more artistic photos now under the term "self portraits". Highly recommend it for a confidence boost!
“I think I have a lot of potential to develop and I felt incredibly happy.”
I completely changed my perspective on photography. It was very good and educational because, although it was in English and it is not my first language, I could understand. The group is amazing, very friendly people and they are very motivated, I feel fantastic because I experienced new situations.
“I loved the variety of things to consider. Now, I look for ways of making the shot more interesting. ”
I liked the comments on the photos...by Sab and other participants. The training videos gave very specific instruction on the topic of the day/week. Having specifics is important to me. Listing out specific things to try and keep in mind is crucial for trying new tasks. Thank you for doing that.
“Will YOURS be the next kind comments I feature here? I hope so!”
Nothing gives me greater pleasure than highlighting your creative achievements. This Creative Smartphone Photography Masterclass has one objective - to help me do just that! Let me give you a dedicated page on the Infinite Creativity NOW website and a featured post on Facebook. And we'll celebrate together!
Infinity Creativity NOW, January 2020
I'll keep this brief, because this Masterclass isn't about me, it's about making your photography amazing, but this little section is about me I guess, so here goes, in one minute flat!
I'm Sab Will, born in Scotland, grew up near London, had the odd year or two in Australia and Greece (very odd actually) and now I've been living in and around the French capital for half my life. How long is that? Hey, we know time is relative, right?! Lady Eiffel is my metaphorical muse (humour me) and I love street photography (no, really) and journalling, writing poems and painting abstract art.
My dream is to become known as that weird creative guy in Paris who sits on the romantic Pont des Arts on Sunday afternoons with his intriguing Infinity² puzzle-paintings scattered around him as he bongs his musical drum for perplexed passers-by or just to annoy the picnickers. Parts of it are already coming true.
To sum up, I spend my time imagining interesting stuff and helping others to express their own infinite creativity too, in any way that seems right at the time. I believe that creating and sharing things regularly, however humble, is a wonderful way to lead a worthwhile, enriching and generous life. I'd love to share in your creativity too!
For things to change for the better, like... making amazing photos, for example, we need to take action. It's obvious, it works every time, we feel great when we do... but sometimes it's hard to take the first step, even when we really want to.
I want to encourage you to take action now and sign up for my unique Creative Photography Masterclass if it feels right for you.
The alternative is to do nothing, or to do something else, and that's fine, as long as you're happy doing it (or not doing it)! But I don't want you to miss the boat and regret not sailing off on this voyage of discovery with a group of enthusiastic folks full of ideas just waiting to surge forth. On the seas we're navigating, all ships rise on the same creative tide and there are only winners. Join us!
