Frequently asked questions
Q: When is Smartphone Bootcamp held?
A: Smartphone Bootcamp workshops are held in various NYC meeting spaces once a month. In order to maximize the value of the session for attendees, the bootcamps fairly small - around 20 people per session, which gives me time to check in on everyone as they practice with their smartphone cameras.
I will send out an email to everyone who signs up for more information alerting them of when the next session is open for registration.
Q: How long is the workshop?
A: This is a 4-hour long workshop that includes several components - lecture, interactive demonstration, and an assignment that involves attendees putting to practice what they just learned.
Q: How much does Smartphone Bootcamp cost?
A: Smartphone Bootcamp is a one-time payment of $297 made electronically through PayPal or credit card, and is required for you to complete your registration and hold your spot for the upcoming session.
Q: What are my options if I miss the workshop, but have paid the registration fee?
A: If you are unable to attend the workshop for which you registered, you will be allowed to attend the next workshop at no additional cost. If you miss this new session, however, your $297 will be forfeited, and you're required to pay in full to participate in a future workshop.
Q: What do I need to do to prepare for Smartphone Bootcamp?
A: It would be ideal - and make your workshop experience much smoother - if you already have a basic understanding of how to open and operate your smartphone camera, so, I encourage you to explore your phone and get a feel for it - especially if you are someone who rarely uses this function of your phone.
Q: What do I need to bring with me to Smartphone Bootcamp?
A: Aside from bringing your smartphone - obviously, :) - you also need to bring one (1) object that holds some type of emotional resonance for you.
This is a big part of your final assignment, so please don't forget to bring one.
The choices are endless - It could be a book that inspires your work, a pen given to you by a mentor, something from your childhood on your desk, a piece of jewelry that was passed down to you, your journal/vision board, etc. - something that you can tell a story about that will be, in some way, relatable and interesting to your audience. If you have any questions about this, please ask me prior to the workshop.
