More and more, we see that mobile journalism can be an easier and more effective way to help journalists to report their stories.
But what about for small publishers and local news organisations? Can the device in our back pocket be a handy piece of kit for reporting breaking news, from press conferences and shooting vox pops and pieces-to-camera?
The answer is yes, according to videographer and mobile journalism trainer Caroline Scott, who in this week's podcast outlines the benefits and challenges of using mobile journalism in local news reporting.
Scott also tells us what separates the amateurs from the professionals, and details all the essential kit you need before heading into the field.
Caroline Scott delivers a workshop on using mobile journalism for small publishers and local newsrooms on 26 November at Reuters in London. It also features as part of our Newsrewired+ deal which will also get you into our digital journalism conference Newsrewired the day after.
