It is so wonderful to see the images from the opening event of the MIRA Mobile Prize 2015, of which I was very proudly a Jury member. Manuela Matos Monteiro put on the most wonderful show, this is what she had to say;

The day was gorgeous, the exhibition fantastic and a lot of public attend to our exhibition. It was a great idea to project the 200 photo (50 shortlisted+150) because there is so great works worthy to be seen. Some mobile photographers from UK and Spain came to participate and that was really nice. The responsible of Culture in Porto was very proud with the exhibition. We thank again and again to our jury and to all candidates. The event was great because we got splendid photographies and we feel very proud!”

We have attached some images from the opening event below. The exhibition will run until  13 June 2015, so if possible, please try to visit.

Joanne Carter – TheAppWhisperer Speaks at The Photography Show 2015 – Seminar 1 – First Part

Share

Many of you will be aware that I was invited to speak on stage at The Photography Show this year about mobile photography. This is the largest annual photography show in Europe and it was a privilege to be asked to talk. I was not given a brief, other than being told I had been booked for four 30 minute seminars over two days. I didn’t need or want a brief, I knew what I wanted to talk about, I knew what a wanted to share with the audience.  I wanted to ensure that every single person that attended my talks, left inspired, invigorated with their minds buzzing at the possibilities of mobile photography and what can be achieved. I’m delighted to say, this happened each and every time, literally time after time.

My talks could have quite easily have extended to 60 minutes, I had plenty of content and the audience wanted more. It was not possible to extend due to the packed schedule of events.

After each seminar many of the audience approached me, eager to learn more about the artists I had been portraying.  Asking advice regarding selling or buying mobile images and art. They shared some of their work with me, left me their details, told me their minds were alive, they felt invigorated. I knew it was a job well done. The audience consisted of a wide spectrum of wonderful minds, from the Head of Photography at Cambridge University (who was incidentally hugely inspired, he told me he had learnt so much, and came back for a second talk too), to professional artists and photographers, to Journalists, TV presenters and to students from Universities from around country.

I’d spent several weeks working around the clock preparing for the show. I had contacted some of our Columnists to ask for contributions as well and each and everyone that I asked produced outstanding work, which I will show.

In this post I am going to detail the first part of Seminar 1 and the second part to follow in the next article. I will follow throughout the week with Seminars 2, 3 and 4.

I asked Vivi Hanson Sacerdote to accompany me as an Assistant and she was perfect, very professional, I am so thankful to her, many of you will have seen the images and short videos that she posted on FB of the event, I can’t thank her enough.
