This summer residential workshop at Idyllwilds Arts is your first and most important step into the magical world of smartphone photography and art. The main focus is to explore the full potential of using a mobile phone to capture high resolution digital images for making art. The briefs for this course have an emphasis on photography and art smartphone applications to initially capture the image and then to further process the image. With students learning to digitally manipulate images on their device, together with producing an imaginative response to themes and concepts. This is a hands-on course, with theory and projects throughout the week.
We are extremely proud of smartphone photographer Brendan O Se’s recent presentation at the Royal Photographic Society of Thailand. O Se, presented also in Jakarta, Indonesia. His lecture allowed him to share with the audience some of his incredible images and also to express and encourage more artists to create smartphone photographic opportunities in this way, to develop their creativity and of course, their own style. We were also very pleased that he mentioned TheAppWhisperer as one of his main influences and development as a photographer – thank you Brendan.

I’m delighted to publish this article on behalf of my friends at the BBC World Service about an incredible mobile photographer called Cillin aka @homelessceo. He visited London a few weeks ago and together they made a 2’00 montage of his voice and his images and have just put this out on the BBC World Service YouTube channel (see below).
Born 30-something years ago in the UK to an Irish mother and a Sri Lankan father, Cillín (pronounced Killeen) is an Australian entrepreneur and Harvard University dropout who spent ten years in Europe (Germany & Switzerland) before moving to his current place of residence in the UAE.
Cillín currently splits his time between a number of bases, including Australia, Hungary, Italy, Sri Lanka, Switzerland and the UAE – which is easier than may seem with 4 nationalities, 3 passports, and 3 companies to run.
Travelling hundreds of thousands of miles every year on business, Cillin known as the “Homeless CEO” spends most of his life on aeroplanes, at airports or in hotels. He takes beautiful, sometimes haunting unfiltered Instagrams on his mobile device and has amassed a dedicated following.

Take a look at this fabulous KickStarter by Jay Desind, in his own words: “everyday is the culmination of a photographic and artistic odyssey that began when I bought a one way ticket to Singapore. My intent was to travel for about two months and then return home.
I never made it back home.
Over three years later I’ve traveled to over 30 countries and taken over 160,000 photographs. Two books of photography and poetry and an ever expanding audience on social media led me to the idea of producing a quality hard cover book.
This book is over 750 pages of photography and inspirational stories or poetry. Every photo shared in the book was taken and then processed on the iPhone…”.
The target for this project is $15,000, currently Jay has been pledged $735, let’s see if we can help get that up. To find out more about this inspiring project, go here.
