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 and to encourage people to travel and capture the world around you with what the very viable photography tool in your pocket, your iPhone. At the core, wanderingiPhone is still about these things but has evolved to become more.

What you will find here: 

  • photography – mobile (iPhone) or mirrorless (Olympus OMD)

I enjoy sharing travel and photography tips, however, those tips don’t always make it to this blog but 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 literacy to women impacted by poverty.

It aims to empower women to have a voice, access to the Internet, a creative outlet, and sustainable income through the sales of photographic products.

The first project was implemented at eKhaya eKasi Art & Education Centre in Khayelitsha, a township outside Cape Town, South Africa in November 2013.

**In February 2017 I head back to South Africa for my 8th trip to the country and to Khayelitsha for our biggest project yet.
