"I grew up around photography. When I was a kid, my dad and I would process Kodak Plus-X Pan that we'd shot in the bathroom after dark. Later in school, photography was something I took throughout junior high and high school."

"I've been shooting with an iPhone since I got my 2G in June of 2008. I loved the digital lo-fi qualities of the camera -- the color qualities and the noise the 2G added to an image. I love how the iPhone's camera is practically invisible. You can get the camera places that you cant do with other cameras without effecting the subject or the scene. Most recently, I've been shooting with an iPhone 5, but I still shoot occasionally with the 2G."
