In June 2011, Cape Town photographer Dale Yudelman won the prestigious Ernest Cole award using his iPhone camera. I've known Dale for over 20 years and always wanted to collaborate with him on a filmed project so I followed him around and made this short on his working methods. We shot in my work neighborhood of the east city of Cape Town and on election day in May in Mandela Park, Hout Bay.

Shot handheld, no rig with GH/13 and 25mm 1.4 CCTV to match Dale's stealth with his iPhone set up.

Edited by Bahia Fitchen and me.

Photographs from his iPhone "From The Hip" series can be found at

His ongoing series will culminate in an exhibition at the SA national gallery next August 2012.
