Photography School Launches Camera Phone Course

Camera phone photography has been exploding in popularity in recent times — pretty much every new phone is equipped with a camera nowadays, the iPhone is the most popular “camera” on Flickr, photographer Chase Jarvis has launched a mini-empire around the slogan “The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You”, the sensors for mobile phones are approaching absurd numbers of megapixels, etc… — so it’s not surprising that a UK-based photography school has launched a course dedicated to cell phone photography.

Photography Made Simple offers a variety of courses in a number of locations around the UK. The school’s co-founder, Phil Hibberd, says,

Kids have a real interest in photography but we find they can’t afford an expensive camera so we thought it would be a good idea to run a photography course focused solely on mobile phone photography as it’s still possible to take good creative photographs even with a mobile phone. The iPhone and Blackberry Cameras are very good and sometimes you can barely distinguish between pictures taken on a mobile and those that aren’t.

What are your thoughts on the recent boom in mobile phone photography?
