During the three-hour iPhone class, photographer Fred Pirone offers insight into the tricks and apps that make iPhone photos stand out. Students learn to turn phone snapshots into professional-grade photographs through various apps, lenses, and pre- and post-production techniques. Two-hour kids workshops teach pupils ages 7–15 portraiture basics as students dress up in costumes and capture portraits that they can take home to show off. Sessions take place in the morning for younger students and the afternoon for older students.

Florida Museum of Photographic Arts

Photography is ubiquitous in contemporary life and culture. The founders of the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts recognized this fact, so they sought to create a setting where visitors from all walks of life could appreciate and experience photography. As one of the few photography museums in the country, FMoPA presents exhibitions, which exclusively use this medium to explore themes that expose some intriguing or exciting aspect of history or modern, everyday life. This focus allows the museum to prominently feature pieces that other art institutions might not necessarily show, such as works of photojournalism or historic photographs.

In addition to scheduling upcoming exhibitions, FMoPA also includes a permanent collection. The collection aims to preserve particularly important images, such as those of various masters of the medium, including Harold Edgerton, Clyde Butcher, Hans Silvester, and Berenice Abbott.

After studying the museum's exhibitions—which can include images culled from national and international sources—guests can step behind the camera themselves during photography workshops for students of all skill levels. Then, budding photographers can display their latest shots at 15 Minutes of Fame, a showcase where up to six presenters exhibit and discuss their original work. They also host a photography group, the Photo League, for those photographers that want to share tips and helpful hints once a month.
