Hi, my name is Simon Ellingworth; I’m a Professional Photographer, educator and all round creative based in London, England and I’m honoured to be a guest blogger on the most established iPhoneography blog, Life In LoFi.
In 2013 my work was featured in Mobile Photography Awards, last year I was runner up in Professional Photographer of the Year & Sony World Photography Awards, selected from over 121,000 images from 171 countries.
Four months ago I started a photography education blog based upon the premise ‘buying a better camera won’t make you a better photographer’ aimed at smart phone, tablet, GoPro and traditional photographers called Lightism. In the last 60 days I have had 163,633 page impressions from 45,411 visitors, so I guess I must be doing something right!
My tutorials are fresh in perspective, simplify complex issues and appeal to a wide audience. They have been re-published by a number of blogs including Lifehacker, DIY Photography.net.
Amazingly, I’ve been approached by a British book publisher who’d visited Lightism, they are currently hammering out a book deal for me in the USA. In short, I’m living the dream!
