BTS of Bon Appetit's May 17' Cover Shoot

The creative director for Bon Appetit, Alex Grossman, describing the use of an iPhone 7+ to photograph the cover and feature story for the magazine as they explored Oaxaca, Mexico.

While there’s value in the ability to shoot with a higher end camera, there’s certainly something liberating about just photographing with your phone. I do it all the time, it's something I had the pleasure of doing when I visited Cuba last year, and while it's becoming more common for publications to take on this approach, this has probably been the first time I've seen a magazine release a video which documents the process. As photographers, we typically have this innate curiosity to get a brief look into the process of other creatives and this examination is no different.
