As a photojournalist I always need to be prepared to shoot a news story. When I’m not on an assignment, I don’t carry my Nikon cameras. But sometimes news stories happen when you least expect them to. My every day set up allows me to have the tools I need to shoot without the bulky gear. Smartphone photography is astonishingly advanced. At the center of my mobile workflow is an iPhone 8+ ($279)
. I can shoot stills and video from the same device and also transmit those images to media outlets. It’s a few generations behind the current iPhone, but that doesn’t impact the quality of the images.
