Our favourite shots by our favourite Lumia photographers

From David Bailey and Stephen Alvarez to leading light-painter, Ian Hobson, the quality and diversity on show here is quite something.

Over the last few years, we’ve been lucky to rub shoulders with some of the leading world photographers.

Inspired by the brilliantly creative shots captured with the Nokia Lumia 1020, we thought we’d put together a selection of our much-loved photos for your delectation. Enjoy!

Ian Hobson demonstrates his incredible light-painting talent on a Lumia 1020


Shot by Bruce Weber in Harlem, this image really demonstrates how great the Lumia 1020 is at capturing colour.

For the first time ever, a Nokia Lumia smartphone was the sole photographic source for the creation of a printed magazine, again testament to the Lumia 1020’s imaging prowess.  We love this special-edition cover by Damon Baker.


Dávid Detkó Caught our eye last last year when he won our December MVC Award. Sporting both a Lumia 920 and Lumia 1020, his shots are consistent as they are packed with detail, as demonstrated here…


Part of the #NokiaWeberBailey series from last year, we could have posted all of David Bailey’s shots, but this grabbed our attention, proving that it’s as much about the idea and composition as it is the tools you use.

In Stephen Alvarez’s own words:

“Shooting an image like this it helps to have a big, bright screen that I can view while looking straight into the sun.”

We agree, Stephen. What a shot

Celebrity photographer, Joy Marie Smallwood, captured a wedding in Mexico with some jaw-dropping results. This being one of them.
