  • Kensington and Chelsea College in southwest London have become the first college to offer a class in iPhone photography named "iPhoneography: An Introduction to Photography with the iPhone."

    The course is made up of evening classes spanning five weeks and goes into apps as well as obvious things like composition and lighting. Richard Gray, the tutor of the course, said: "I developed the course after discovering there were a lot of people who had an iPhone who didn’t really know how to use the camera." Gray believes the course will help the average person take up photography.

    • Well there are a few camera apps for iphone that let you use manual ISO/shutterspeed/aperture etc, right? (not 100% knowledgeable on the subject) so why not have a course to let people use them properly. no big deal, each to their own. the iPhone fashion shoot by Lee Morris/Fstoppers has shown quite well that a 3GS has a camera good enough to pull off some pretty good shots providing you know how to light well in the studio. I'm not about to put people down just because I use a DSLR, people need to chill out and not be so negative.

    • Nike have been involved in skateboarding for a lot longer than you think - and Koston has been signed to them for ages since leaving Lakai in 2009

    • What's the difference between this and a box brownie course in the 1950's? It's a camera for the masses, get over it people.

    • Love some of these comments. Weep for humanity ; ) I have a very corny thing I say to the sceptics: there's more to it than meets the i. And it's true. Unless you know what's there, you don't realise. A lot of it is about the editing apps. Well, there is some proper photography stuff too: which you need whatever camera you have. Either way thanks for your interest. For more see iphoggy.com.

    • As a professional photographer, I am enthused by this. Photography is about lighting, composition, and subject - and nothing to do with gear. The best camera is the one you have with you. Photography is art, and it's no less so just because the equipment is small and gadgety.

    • Do your Art history lessons morons , if you think artistic movements and great photographic styles have come out of expensive kit , then your probably one of those unimaginative plebs who think great things happen from elitism and spending loads of money . The reason the reason the Tate uses a reality TV star is because incase you havent noticed reality TV is representative of contemporary life , just as Picasso , Dali and Duchamp were in there time
