Apple Introduces New Pop Portraits Sessions at Apple Union Square in SF (January 21st)

January 21 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm | FREE

Apple is launching a FREE new photography workshop in San Francisco to kick off the year.

On Saturday, January 21, at 3 pm PT, fashion, travel, and commercial photographer Anna-Alexia Basile will host a session at Apple Union Square, highlighting how attendees can play with poses, experiment with color, and explore elements of creative direction using the iPhone 14. The event is free, and registration will go live on January 10 here.

The new workshop series is part of Apple’s “Today at Apple” in-store sessions. The new “Today at Apple: Pop Portraits” is a special series, taking place at select Apple stores around the country, hosted by industry photographers who will share their expert tips and tricks on capturing the perfect portrait photo with the iPhone 14 dual-camera system. Sessions will be inspired by color, personal style, and how to make your photos POP, and iPhones will be provided for use in the workshop.

Anna-Alexia is a San Francisco-based fashion photographer who has worked with various clients, including Banana Republic, J. Crew, Free People, and The Real. Growing up, she spent most of her time traveling between Italy and the US, which sparked her passion for capturing stunning images of warm bodies of water, sunshine, and all the colors surrounding her.
