Well, so say all of us it is, here at theappwhisperer.com we’ve been advocating it for many years now. Award winning photographer Benjamin Lowy will be Judging the Head On Mobile competition, that we just mentioned here – as well as that he will be hosting a workshop in Sydney for the event.
He began his career covering the Iraq War in 2003. Since then he has covered major stories worldwide, including the wars in Afghanistan and Darfur, the Libyan Uprising, the Haitian Earthquake and Hurricane Katrina. At the moment Ben is in Sochi photographing the Winter Olympics. Whatever the event, Ben isn’t afraid of using a mobile phone to capture extraordinary images. Not convinced? Do Ben’s workshop!
“If you believe that Hipstamatic and Instagram could inspire tens of millions of people to become more interested in ‘serious’ photography, then think of Mr Lowy as a prophet urging others to abandon out-dated and elitist ways. If, on the other hand, you believe that iPhone photography — and the Hipstamatic app, in particular — are the work of the Devil, then you can think of Mr Lowy as his messenger.” James Estrin, New York Times
We’ll be publishing more details about this workshop very soon…
