Welcome. What or Who is wandering iPhone?
iPhone + travel = wanderingiPhone
Simply, my iPhone is always with me and I love to travel. wanderingiPhone is me, Andrea Rees, a photography professional since 2008.
This space promotes the love of photography, the love of travel and I guess you could say the love of the iPhone. I do so with images, stories, tips and reviews in my effort to encourage you to get out there and explore the world and to help you travel and photograph better.
- I use an iPhone 6s & iPhone 5s. I believe it is a viable tool for capturing travel and everyday life because it is always with you. I firmly believe it is not the tool, but the person behind the camera and in learning photography principles. Read: 5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Take Your Next Photo. Visit and connect with me on Instagram. Images are marked ‘olympusOMD’ or ‘iphoneonly’.
- I also use a mirrorless camera system, the Olympus OM-D em1 and pro lenses.
- I enjoy solo travel and am an advocate for solo female travel whether single, married, a mother or not. I was a co-host of the of the #WeGoSolo twitter chat, a solo female travel community. Read Why This Mother and Wife Travels Solo.
- I love family travel with my husband and 2 sons (10 & 6). My father sometimes joins us for intergenerational travel. Read 22 Instagrams of our Family trip to South Africa.
- I am passionate about women’s empowerment, poverty alleviation and supporting local small business owners and artists. Read The last 30 Puppeteers of Yangon, Myanmar and Beyond Cape Town, in the ‘Heart’ of Khayelitsha, South Africa.
The Heart of a Woman Project (THOAW):
In May 2013, I founded a women’s mobile photography development initiative, 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, technology, and social media to women and mothers 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 pilot project was implemented at eKhaya eKasi Art & Education Centre in Khayelitsha, a township outside Cape Town, South Africa in November 2013.

A Word from Andrea:
The iPhone is always with me and has been since 2008. I’ve learned things along the way and share tips on travel or photographing with an iPhone. However, it doesn’t always make it to this blog. Follow me on Twitter or Facebook or email me and I’ll see if I can help you.
