First Place with iPhone Travel Photograph

New Zealand travel, portrait and lifestyle photographer Adrienne Pitts has won 1st place in the travel category at the 2014 iPhone Photography Awards.

“My iPhone is the camera that is always on me, and is a great creative challenge,” London-based Pitts said.

“This little device I carry in my pocket is a constant reminder to me to always be shooting, to always have my eyes open, and to always try and become better at what I do.”

iPhone photographers from 17 countries including Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Spain, and Sweden submitted images for consideration.

Pitts works for various editorial and commercial clients including Jamie Magazine. Her Instagrams have featured on Buzzfeed and in the Guardian.
