PURSUIT IN SHANGHAI WITH HUAWEI MOBILE
On Friday, November 10th, 2017 Pursuit of Portraits hosted "Pursuit in Shanghai"; a meet-up at a private rooftop location in partnership with @huaweimobile during the international arts festival to highlight the capabilities of the new Mate 10 mobile phone with Leica camera.
Pursuit of Portraits commissioned 5 U.S. based photographers (@ddesigns_, @hangtw, @misshattan, @saunakspace & @thestreetsensei) to Shanghai and engaged 3 Shanghai-based photographers (@nk7, @panvelvet, @st_ella) to extend narrative, increase awareness and social buzz around Huawei’s latest launch. Attendees at the meet were provided with Mate 10 devices to learn more about the features and make portraits in real-time by truly putting the device to test.
