A Mobiographer’s Journey From Analog to iPhone

As a mobile photographer, you already have an ample amount of power with your device, especially if you own an iPhone 7. The newest phone from Apple boasts a 12 megapixel camera, digital zoom, optical image stabilization, and a wide range of other features – but how do you protect such an investment?
With the right iPhone case, you can keep your device safe from wear and tear, and improve your mobile photography as well. Here are four iPhone cases that you may want to consider.
This case from VRS Design has military grade drop protection, meaning you’re covered (literally) if your phone accidentally hits the ground. However, it’s worth noting that the case also comes with a stand, which allows you to prop your phone up on a solid surface in a landscape position. This makes it easy to scroll through your Camera Roll and review your mobile photography during the editing process.
This case was designed by a photographer, meaning you know it has the quality you look for as a mobile photography enthusiast. It has front and back-facing lights for dim environments, and it is shock resistant, meaning you’re covered if you accidentally drop your phone. It has an adjustable dimmer, and its overall design is extremely thin. This means you won’t feel like your iPhone is bulkier or heavier as you use it – more mobility translates into better images.
Watershot has been making this case for the iPhone 6/6S for quite some time, and it will be debuting one for the iPhone 7 by the end of February 2017. This case is a must for any mobile photographer who does work underwater. Watershot calls the product “housing” for the iPhone, which keeps it secure in depths up to 195 feet. It also has a right finger grip, an interchangeable lens port mount, and five conductive pressure buttons.
The Otterbox Defender line is still one of the best on the market for iPhone owners who want to ensure that their device is protected from elements ranging from dust to dirt. It comes with a built-in screen protector, which protects the screen from scratches on the go. It can also absorb impact, meaning it’s resistant to damage if it hits a hard surface. Best of all, the outside portion of the cover is rubber, making the phone easy to grip. The Otterbox Defender case may not be the flashiest one on the market, but it’s a must for mobile photographers who shoot in a wide range of environments, indoors and out.
Every mobile photographer is different, meaning you should keep your specific needs in mind as you shop for iPhone cases. Whether you conduct your work in a studio or you shoot photos everywhere you go, there are iPhone cases out there for your lifestyle.
