Nokia N8 UK advert

Nokia N8 UK advert

Advertisements for the Nokia N8 are still coming out thick and fast, proving that the marketing team behind the phone are still planning on new ways to market it to the wider audience. The phone is not a dying model, but a product that is continuing to grow despite recent announcements from Nokia and Microsoft – there’s still a whole world of stuff to look forward to for the mobile phone.

The Nokia N8 is an inspiring phone, no doubt, especially for photographers but no more so than for Gary Waite, who has spent most of his life exploring the world through his camera lens. He’s a blind photographer and uses his own visual interpretation of the world to create the amazing images we see on the screen. Using a Nokia N8, Gary has travelled to the seaside resort of Blackpool to capture the sights and sounds of the town.

It’s amazing what people can accomplish, who would of thought that a blind man, or woman for that matter, could capture images that he or she cannot even see – but are of the highest quality. Even those of us with working eyesight cannot even begin to try and capture the quality of images that Gary does, but that he hasn’t let his blindness stop him from doing the one thing he loves; taking photographs of the world around him that he cannot himself see.

The advert may be focused on the UK audience, but it’s powerful message is relevant to countries across the world, never give up what you love and always believe that these ‘obstacles’ in life are just that – an obstacle, something you can overcome with work, patience and commitment and Gary is a prime example of such a person. It’s truly amazing what people can be capable of, no matter who you are or no matter of what your circumstances in life.
