Andrew B. White is a graphic designer, visual artist and musician originally from Auckland, New Zealand.
My images are all shot and edited on an iPhone which is known as 'iPhoneography' or mobile photography.
I have been experimenting with 'mobile photography' since 2010 and have had my work shown in a number of physical and digital mobile photography shows and exhibitions.
I have over 20 years of Photoshop experience and prior to that several years of traditional experience in editing photos for graphic design work. My skills include retouching, manipulation, colour correction, resizing etc.
However, for my mobile photography I do not process any of my works outside of the iPhone. This is considered a crucial process when one creates mobile photography work.
In my job as a graphic designer I know and work with many professional commercial and fine-art photographers who use high end cameras and have very traditional skill sets. Camera phones and mobile photography has often been seen as the 'illegitimate poor cousin' to more traditional photography that uses 'real cameras'. It is important that we see mobile photography not as a competitor or replacement for traditional photography but as another form of producing visual art. It is important to explore all types of ways of producing photographic art and rather than dismissing camera phones toys. I am interested how we can use the limited functionality of camera phones to create photographic art (and also video art, short films etc). Mobile photography is an exciting art form within the photographic arts and I am excited to be part of the ever-growing world-wide mobile photography community.
I truly believe the best camera is the one you have on you at the time.
Of course I wouldn't say "no" to a Nikon D800 ;)
NB: I am in the process of adding a selection of my mobile images to 500px
You can find and follow me on mobile photo-sharing sites such as flickr, iPhoneart.com, EyeEm.com, tumblr and of course Instagram.
