As a change of pace, today’s blogpost is actually an audio interview. Hong Kong entrepreneur, Casey Lau hosted an event tonight for Social Media Week, looking at the rise of mobile and social photography.
Since I can’t be there, I took the opportunity to interview tonight’s panelists, Rita S. (@mochachocolata), Tyson Wheatley (@Twheat), Lester Lim, (@framewerkz), Vilja Sormunen (@viljasormunen) and Jason Tse (@jasonbonvivant) on their approach to this growing trend, the apps they use and the experiences they have had.
The interview is brief (just over 16 minutes) but we cover a lot of good ground. I think it is fascinating to hear five talented and diverse photographers talking about their passion for smartphone photography. And, I’m sure you’ll be interested to the hear the responses to the final question – about the future of point and shoot cameras!
