vivo’s New Nighttime Photography Campaign Highlights X50 Series’ Professional Camera Features
MANILA, September 18, 2020 – vivo successfully kicked off the global “Night Artist” campaign last month via social media in search for talented nighttime photography artists from around the world—attracting a wide range of users and KOLs, including award-winning global photographer Chris Hau and outdoor explorer and photographer Samuel Elkins. With the revolutionary nighttime photography capabilities of vivo’s flagship X50 series, the campaign called on users to capture the tranquility and dynamism of the night sky all while demonstrating vivo’s leading technological breakthroughs in mobile photography.
Globally renowned for their photography skills, Elkins and Hau led the campaign by showcasing the innovative camera technology of the X50 Pro through stunning night portraits they shot with the smartphone.
Elkins, a professional photographer adept in smartphone camera technology, headed to southern California to explore the Pro Sports and Astro Mode of the X50 series which helped him produce mesmerizing photos of the Milky way and the California night sky.
Meanwhile, award-winning photographer and travel and technology influencer Chris Hau, maximized vivo’s built-in photography features through a street photography shoot in Toronto.
With Elkins and Hau leading the charge, the campaign has gained support from around the world, with a number of KOLs from Southeast Asia, Russia, and Ukraine, sharing their astonishing photos on social media.
In the Philippines, the campaign also drew plenty of attention after being introduced through the vivo “Starry Night” mobile astrophotography workshop facilitated by astrophotography enthusiast and Astropinas founder MJ Magallon last August 28.
Besides equipping viewers with tips and tricks to master mobile astrophotography with the vivo X50 Pro, vivo and Magallon also invited viewers to participate in an mobile astrophotography contest to get a chance to win the brand new vivo X50 Pro.
This contest, along with the Night Artist campaign, was also supported by celebrated actor Khalil Ramos and renowned photographer Xander Angeles who also showcased the night photography capabilities of the vivo X50 Pro through photos posted on their Instagram pages.
