wanderingiPhone.com was founded in 2012 by Canadian professional photographer Andrea Rees. It started as a way to share tips on how to travel and photograph with an iPhone but mostly to encourage people to travel and capture the world around you with what is always in your pocket. At the core, wanderingiPhone is still about these things but has evolved to become much more.
What you will find here:
- photography – mobile (iPhone) or mirrorless (Olympus OMD)
- solo, family & intergenerational travel
- responsible tourism & supporting local business and artists
- narratives and photo based stories on experiences with a focus on culture and wildlife
- 5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Take Your Next Photo.
- Instagrams of our family trip to South Africa.
- Beyond Cape Town, in the ‘Heart’ of Khayelitsha, South Africa
- The last 30 Puppeteers of Yangon, Myanmar
- Why This Mother and Wife Travels Solo.
I enjoy sharing travel and photography tips, however, those tips don’t always make it to this blog and are shared on social media.
The Heart of a Woman Project (THOAW):
In May 2013, I founded The Heart of a Woman Project (THOAW). THOAW is a small grassroots initiative that partners with non-profit organizations to provide education in mobile photography and digital skills to women impacted by poverty.
It aims to empower women to have a voice, a creative outlet, and sustainable income through the sales of photographic art products.
The first project was implemented at eKhaya eKasi Art & Education Centre in Khayelitsha, a township outside Cape Town, South Africa in November 2013. Learn more about the project in Khayelitsha, South Africa.
