By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

Introducing our essential list of photographers using mobile photography to bring their creative perspectives and visual style to life. Each one proving you can shape the industry no matter what you shoot with.

For The 2019 EyeEm Awards we decided to focus on our creative root and introduce the ‘The Mobile Photographer‘category for the very first time.

Having starting out nearly 10 years ago with one of the world’s first mobile photography competitions, we are thrilled to see the unique emerging talent this category will put in the spotlight.

It’s time to break industry norms, and this collection of EyeEm photographers is just the inspiration we all need to rethink photography methods and techniques.

How Are You Pushing the Boundaries of Mobile Photography?

16 EyeEm photographers, one thing in common - they’re all using their smartphone’s to question conventional creativity.

Covering portraits, architecture, surrealism, and vintage photography this list of need-to-know photographers showcases that there really is no limit to your visual style, no matter where you are, or what your shoot with.
