Brendan Ó Sé is an award-winning fine art photographer/iPhone photographer from Cork, Ireland. In April 2015, he won the Mira Mobile Photography Prize. He has exhibited both his DSLR and iPhone images in Dublin, Miami and Porto. Brendan is part of the current Apple World Gallery of images shot on iPhone 6. His photograph is showcased on billboards in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Tokyo, Bogota, Kuala Lumpur, Berlin, Boston, Milan, Singapore and Sydney.

In April 2015, Brendan was invited to London to talk about his iPhone photography as part of Apple’s Meet the iPhone Photographer series hosted by the popular designer/photographer, Dan Rubin. Brendan’s work has been featured in numerous online publications and magazines.

Using either the iPhone or a DSLR, he tries to see and create in unusual ways and this results in some unique imagery and striking street photography.
