Phil and Rachel Hiberd, who are both professional photographers, have started a course that aims to help people from the UK get the most out of their mobile phones' digital camera.
Seven years after the first camera phones were launched it is now virtually impossible to pick up a new mobile that does not sport one. This inspired the husband and wife team to take the initiative and cash in on the ubiquitous camera phone craze, hopefully helping a few people along the way.
The course lasts a day, costs £40 and is aimed at those who use their phone's built-in camera as a permanent replacement for a standalone camera.
Mr Hiberd commented that although thousands of youngsters upload photographs from their phone to social networking sites every day and many have a passion for photography, access to decent equipment was expensive or impossible. The course aims to promote the creative and effective use of camera phones. Since most people already carry one with them everywhere, there is no additional equipment required on order to derive benefit from the course.
The couple believe that most camera phones can take excellent photographs in the right hands and with the right training and that mobile photography is all about getting the composition right.
