Xiaomi Launches Master Class Series on Mobile Photography

World renown photographers will come together to share their knowledge with Xiaomi fans and beyond.

October 20, 2021 Xiaomi officially announced the launch of the Xiaomi Master Class series. The new educational project will bring together professional photographers specializing in different fields such as portrait photography, street photography, monochrome photography, allowing them to share their experiences with wider audiences.

Xiaomi has been dedicated to bringing quality devices with pro-grade mobile photography features, offering everyone a toolkit that would allow them to express their creativity to the fullest. The first season of Xiaomi Master Class will see professional photographers share their mobile photography insights, and more importantly, talk about why they decided to pick up the craft and how they found their personal style – all within the segment called “The Moments That Made Me”.

The first master to share his “moments” is Charlie Clift, professional portrait photographer. He has dangled CEOs upside down, gone undercover with the police, set Michelin star chefs on fire and discussed peace with Nobel Prize winners – all in pursuit of a great photograph. His drive is to tell personal stories with a twist of the unexpected.

He works globally for a range of editorial and commercial clients and his work has been published and exhibited widely. In his Xiaomi Master Class he will walk users through the whole process of taking a portrait from inspiration, preparation, setting and how to work together with the model.

Besides Charlie Clift’s online Xiaomi Master Class, Xiaomi will also host several offline events allowing audiences to meet masters face to face and learn from them in a more immersive setting.

Though other devices are not included at this time, Xiaomi believes this reflects a positive change, and is catered towards the needs of Xiaomi 11T series users.  

“With the continuous improvement made to smartphone hardware, the life cycle of a smartphone is gradually lengthening, meaning users aren’t required to replace their smartphones as frequently.

In continuation of this commitment to users, Xiaomi is further extending the life cycle of Xiaomi’s smartphones by ensuring three generations of Android operating system updates. This way, users can choose to use their current devices for a longer period, and enjoy the latest features along with it. At the same time, we will also provide users with security updates that ensure their devices operate securely for a longer period of time.”  

Xiaomi will also evaluate the possibility of bringing the extended Android system and security upgrades services to more Xiaomi devices. “It is not a simple task for Xiaomi and its team to provide system updates and security patches to all of its previous smartphone models. However, the prospect of this challenge and meeting the desires of our customers is exciting. On one hand, we’re once again fulfilling Xiaomi’s brand promise to its global users – to provide amazing products. On the other hand, gradually extending the service life cycle of Xiaomi smartphones is a progressive move that furthers Xiaomi’s sustainability and environmental responsibility goals,” Albert Shan added.
