Cielo de la Paz
Award-Winning Photographer, Filmmaker, Entrepreneur, Instructor and Speaker.

I believe in equalizing storytelling. I want everyone with an important message to share to be able to share it. That's why I teach iPhone videography- to remove the technical hurdle of video creation so that we can focus on the story.

With my Smartphone videography classes and iPhone Video Toolkit Guide, I have helped thousands of bloggers, entrepreneurs, business owners, and non-profit organizations, tell their stories – using nothing but their smartphones.

I currently teach courses on iPhone videography at Stanford, private firms and at conference workshops.

I'm known for my work that's been featured in the Apple Shot on iPhone billboard and TV ad campaigns and have been featured in Business Insider, USA Today, Cult of Mac, and Buzzfeed.  My work has been awarded the Gold Cannes Lions Award, as well as honors from Mobile Photography Awards and iPhone Photography Awards.
