Apple Teams Up With 100cameras to Teach Chicago Students iPhone Photography

This past Fall, Apple partnered with 100cameras, a nonprofit organization that aims to teach photography to adolescents.  As part of this partnership, Apple provided participating students at DRW College Prep in Chicago with the new iPhone 11.

 

100cameras teaches the students how to use photography to tell their own stories about growing up in Chicago.

 

Angela Popplewell, 100cameras’ co-founder, said:

 

“As the residents of a neighborhood in Chicago that is often overlooked, being given the new iPhone that had been released just a few weeks prior felt like a momentous opportunity,”

 

Apple’s vice president of iPhone Worldwide Product Marketing Kaiann Drance said:

 

“It was amazing to collaborate with 100cameras and the talented and creative students at DRW,” said Kaiann Drance, Apple’s vice president of iPhone Worldwide Product Marketing. “The ‌iPhone 11‌ camera with all its intuitive capabilities right there in your hand is such a powerful storytelling tool. To see the photos the students captured of the ways they see the world around them was truly inspiring.”

 

Following each program, the photos that students took are sold through 100cameras with 100 percent of the proceeds going back to the local community partner organizations that 100cameras visits.
