Of course, smartphones are crazy good for capturing street photographs and they’re arguably the best device you can possibly use for a number of reasons. They’re inconspicuous, portable, and they have the ability to share the image immediately to Instagram and other social media platforms. Plus the images they shoot these days are often more than good enough quality for most people out there.
It’s also worth noting that Thomas is overall just a fantastic photographer. What he does isn’t about the gear, it’s more about his own creative vision and the fact that he knows how to use the tool to do exactly what he wants. In fact, that’s the whole game behind photography to begin with.
So as long as you remember that, your iPhone will still keep cranking out great photos.
