Class Experience

Sometimes it's just not feasible to bring out your big camera to shoot a photo and then edit it on a computer using expensive software. In this online workshop Bay Area photographer Kumi Rauf will teach you how to capture and edit amazing photos on your smartphone. Using free mobile apps you will learn the fundamentals of mobile photography, how to make amazing product photos, create artistic projects and more.

Materials List: Bring your mobile device (make sure it is charged!) and follow along.

Optional: When you register, upload an image you would like constructive feedback on. Kumi will edit a selection of images live during the workshop.


Open to all levels of experience. This workshop is designed for adults, but students 12+ are welcome to join.

About Kumi Rauf: Kumi Rauf grew up in a loving Pan-African household filled with music, art, activism, travel and photography. His inspiration for photography stemmed from his father, uncle and brother who are all established photographers. His inspiration for art and travel come from his mother. After leaving corporate America, Kumi took his first international trip. Kumi traveled extensively throughout Africa and other parts of the world soaking up culture and using his camera as a conduit for telling forgotten stories and forbidden tales of Blackness. Recently Kumi has also begun to document more stories in his own backyard. Oakland has so many beautiful and resilient stories to tell, these must never be forgotten. In addition to being a photographer Kumi is also a drone pilot. Capturing images and video from an aerial perspective allows more encompassing ideas to take flight in his art (pun intended). Kumi blends his passion for Black cultures, storytelling and traveling in his artwork. He also leads tours to many different places around the world. Because of his love for travel and art he is known as the Escape Artist.
