One Man & His Blog

The professional photographer and his iPhone

Time  shot on an iPhone

Great interview with the photographer who shot a Time magazine cover with an iPhone and Hipstamatic:

I asked him if it was embarrassing as a pro to be carrying an iPhone when most of his colleagues are into Nikon and Canon gear. “People don’t think twice about it,” Lowy told me. “It’s a fast little camera and I do like that on a tough assignment.” At times though, he says, “pros will push me aside” assuming he is a tourist or amateur.

It’s a nice counter to the gear fetishism that seems to be rampant at the moment – and maybe always has been.
