Would you like to create colorful and minimalistic compositions of buildings… with your smartphone?

Photos so artistic that look like they came out of a Wes Anderson movie?

As a tourist, you’ll know how difficult it is to capture the unique beauty of buildings that you pass.

Often there’s a wire that hangs in your frame… a row of cars distracting the scene… or construction work going on in the background.

You have probably taken hundreds of photos with distorted perspectives. Photos that don’t do justice to the beauty you saw.

…What if there was an easy way to create perfectly framed and eye-catching shots on-the-go?

You don’t need extraordinary locations… Or even a professional camera – your smartphone will do the trick…

Say goodbye to tourist snaps of your trips and hello to print-worthy images.

All you need is the right approach. Take a look at these photos:

This is an average-looking building that’s not even worth capturing. Or so you’d think…

Now, this is an image worth framing! Same day, same building. The only difference is the approach…

Meet Karen Vikke, The Wes Anderson of Minimalist Urban Photography


Karen highlights the beauty of cities… captures interesting constructions… and brings out the brilliant colors and shapes of buildings…

Her style relies on quick, easy, and colorful edits to highlight beautiful buildings.

Using nothing but her smartphone. (All the photos on this page were captured with an iPhone 8 from 2017.)

I tried it myself, and it is some of the coolest urban shots I’ve created with my phone.

It’s no wonder she has attracted 56,000+ online followers and magazine features.

She’s the Wes Anderson of minimalist urban photography. So it only made sense to join forces and create this…

You don’t need to own an expensive camera to take great shots during your trips. A great photo is:

If you have a few composition rules and a smartphone “in the bag”, you’re ready to capture great photos.

And here’s someone who can walk you through the entire process…

6 Chapters for 30 Fun Minimalist Shots (Value $584)

1. Beautiful Buildings (5 Projects)

You don’t need to travel long distances to take mesmerizing photos of architecture.

Interesting buildings are everywhere if you know what to look for. It’s all a matter of perspective.

And this section reveals how Karen makes a simple block of apartments stand out. Using unique, yet, easy-to-master composition and editing techniques.

2. Picturesque Rooftops (3 Projects)

Every building has a roof and if you know what to look for, this is often one of its most unique features…

All you need to do is look up when you’re walking around your city… and you’ll discover interesting patterns along your way.

In this module, Karen will show you how to remove distracting objects from your image. And how you can highlight the beautiful shapes of rooftops around you.

3. Focusing on Facades (7 Projects)

Karen composes scenes so fun and colorful that they could easily feature in a Wes Anderson movie.

She brings out the colors by adjusting the saturation and adding a contrasting background…

She even crops or combines two different buildings to create images like these:

(p.s. the car above was added in three minutes using a simple free app!)

4. Architectural and Human Elements (5 Projects)

Minimalist scenes rely on great composition techniques.

In this chapter, Karen will show you how negative space can give your images a sense of scale.

And how much impact colors have to create the final mood.

5. Minimalist Scenes (5 Projects)

Sometimes, less is more.

Because whatever doesn’t add to a composition, distracts from it.

When you find unique elements, you can use negative space and striking balance to create cool images like these:

6. Reflections (5 Projects)

Karen often uses symmetry in her photos to add a serene and dreamy atmosphere. And reflections are the easiest way to create it.

But it’s hard to find natural bodies of water in front of striking buildings.

The good news is there are affordable apps that can add realistic reflections to your photo… even if it was taken miles away from any water.

What else is included?

New Bonus Added: 2 Editing Walkthrough Videos (Value $99)

Although Karen only uses her smartphone to create her images, she does process them.

The colors become more vibrant… the textures more detailed… and the buildings more dramatic…

Karen was kind enough to film two bonus videos that show how she achieves her signature style:

The ‘Bell-Shaped Buildings’ and ‘Pretty in Pink’.

Grab this limited-time bonus now before it’s gone!

How much experience with photography do I need to have to get started?

Zero experience with photography is required. Karen’s methods rely on using a point-and-shoot camera on your smartphone, so you don’t need to learn any technical information.

How much post-processing do I need to do?

Karen relies on post-processing to create her unique images, but it’s all done on her smartphone. She uses up to six different apps to edit her photos: SKRWT ($1.99), Union (free) or Picsart (free), Snapseed (free), TouchRetouch ($1.99), and for iOS users, optionally Alien Sky ($4.99), and Reflect ($4.99).
