The BBC reports todaythat London’s Kensington and Chelsea College has launched a course about iPhone photography. The course is ” thought to be a UK first.”
It may be the first “full course” – but it’s not the UK’s first provision. I know because modules I developed for BA Journalism and BSc Photographic Journalism athad workshops on smartphone photography and mobile media a year ago…
Smartphones (Android, iOS) are core tools for journalists and creatives now, offering us the ability to take photographs in situ, record video and audio – even file copy. Your phone’s an Internet connection, a memo pad, a contacts book and – well – a phone. No journalist should be without one. No one who makes any kind of content should be without one.
But it’s nice to see the rest of the world catching up 🙂
