The Photo Guide is the most comprehensive guide to photography on the App Store!

If you like photography as much as we do, you will love the Photo Guide.

"I don't hesitate to recommend The Photo Guide to digital photographers. [...] The photo examples are excellent, and the text is concise and clear."

Explore the fantastic world of photography with a beautiful and interactive app on your iPhone or iPad.

Today, almost everyone has access to a camera, but most users only leverage a fraction of its potential. Our goal is to change this. The Photo Guide starts off with the basics of photography and goes into great detail to help you improve your skills to finally make better photos.

We built the Photo Guide for seasoned photography enthusiasts, as well as for total beginners.

We dedicated an entire category to everyone who is just getting started with photography. The topics are result-oriented, practical, and deliberately avoid unnecessary technical terms.

Great image composition is a key element of great photography. The Photo Guide covers a huge range of interesting aspects.

See how specific photos were taken. Which shutter speed, aperture, etc. was chosen and why, which lighting is best and much more!

Learn about the different kinds of cameras, lenses, lens filters and much more, to make informed decisions what should be part of your gear.

The cameras in our mobile devices are extremely capable. It’s time to take these amazing cameras seriously. This category teaches everything about iPhone & iPad photography.

Practical tips and tricks for when you’re out capturing your next great photographs.

You can only master photography if you fully understand what’s happening behind the scenes, when you press the shutter button of your camera.

You already know everything about photography? Check out the quiz and find out if there's stuff you didn't know.

Oh no, what's “Hyper-focal distance". Several hundred glossary entries will help you. Photography is not rocket science but so much fun!

The Photo Guide is underrated

This app was tough to find but very rewarding. I quite frankly believe the price of this app is a steal. I I would easily pay $15 - $20 dollars as it has compensated for all the time you would’ve spent browsing the internet for the basic knowledge let alone the more advanced buzzwords. Everything is explained in a way that seems as simple as possible which makes it super easy to learn. I would love to call this an app well done. It’s not nearly as modern as a Facebook, Audible, or other well known brand interfaces but it does a great job.

I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase “The Video Guide” if they created one. Thank you for your hard work.

Highly recommend for anyone who likes photography

It’s quite remarkable how expansive and high quality the content of this app is! Definitely well worth the money.

I love the new Augmented Reality tool, it also shows you times for Gold Hour, Blue Hour etc. which is super useful if you’re into landscape photography.

Thanks for making this great app!
