Roy Potterill was invited to participate in a LISOF Design and Retail Academy Fashion Editorial in honor of our new architectural home. Roy was asked to offer our students insight into the new technological trends within photography and the outstanding result you could get using an iPhone armed with a particularly keen eye. The results were outstanding and it was an honor to explore Fashion Editorial photography whilst experimenting with new, supreme technology and experience the work of an Mobile Photographer in action." Nicola Cooper - Senior Theoretical Contextual Lecturer at LISOF Design & Retail Academy.
Social sharing and visual storytelling are much more than a passing fad. After all, who needs the beach when you have the #beach? What fun is a perfect view without sharing it? While some see this as a threat to human interaction, we see it as an exciting evolution in the way people communicate and engage. One that enhances reality, rather than replaces it.
