New York City Smartphone Photo Workshop with National Geographic Expeditions

Share

I’ve mentioned these workshops before and they continue to excite me. If you’re in New York City on the following dates, do book this workshop! Taught by Ed Kashi an award-winning photojournalist and filmmaker who has produced seventeen stories for National Geographic magazine. Dedicated to documenting the social and political issues that define our times, a sensitive eye and an intimate relationship to his subjects are signatures of his work. One of his innovative approaches to photography and filmmaking is his acclaimed Iraqi Kurdistan flipbook that uses still images in a moving-image format. As a member of the prestigious VII Photo Agency, Ed has been recognized for his complex imagery and its compelling rendering of the human condition. His images have been published and exhibited worldwide, and his editorial assignments and personal projects have generated seven books. Ed is a pioneer in multimedia, having worked in video and film for more than a decade. He has also been on the forefront of using mobile photography and the Instagram platform as a photojournalist on assignments and for personal projects. In 2011, he produced a multimedia piece on the effects of Agent Orange in Vietnam that won the UNICEF Photo of the Year and a World Press award. Ed’s work has earned numerous other honors, including from Pictures of the Year International (recently named Multimedia Photographer of the Year for 2014), Communication Arts, and American Photo Magazine. Ed is also an accomplished educator who instructs and mentors students of photography, participates in forums, and lectures on photojournalism, documentary photography, and multimedia storytelling. I’m assuring you, you will not be dissapointed!

Inspiring Photographic TED Talk – ‘How Photography Connects Us’

Share

Followers of TheAppWhisperer.com will be aware that perhaps the biggest ethos of our wonderful website is the connection that we share. Of course, the basis of that connection is photography and art but it goes much deeper than that. I have lived my life within the depths of photography, since I turned professional thirty years ago. The photography world looked very different then but the emotional core of our wonderful art form has always been been the same. TheAppWhisperer is a community, one where we share what we love, for a multitude of reasons, whether that is professional or personal.

We built this section ‘Inspiring Photographic TED Talks’ within the website some time ago. I find TED talks and their speakers incredibly inspiring. I am also privileged to know many of them and I know personally just how passionate they are about photography.

Please enjoy this one, by David Griffin, formerly the Photo Director for National Geographic, listen/read his language – he uses words such as ‘love’ frequently, feel his enthusiasm. This is a man passionate about photography, as we all are. This is about connection, this is about love.

National Geographic SmartPhone Photographer Stephen Alvarez

Share

Here’s a very interesting article on the Micosoft Stories blog written by Geoff Carter (no relation) regarding Stephen Alvarez a National Geographic Photographer of over 20 years, who was recently given a new assignment to photograph the Seven Natural Wonders of the World using only Microsoft smartphones.

“The equipment’s obviously the most important and the least important thing,” he said. “The most important thing really is how you see. I know photographers that can make a great picture using an oatmeal box, because they see really well.”

And Tiina Jaatinen, senior communications manager with Microsoft Devices, was pretty sure she had something better than an oatmeal box.

“We knew that if we put our Lumia phones in the hands of a professional photographer like Stephen, they would perform,” she said. And where better to find such a photographer than at a publication whose debut issue, in a remarkable coincidence, came out in 1888—the same year George Eastman made the first portable camera?
