Artists' Corner,  News

Artist’s Corner – NEW

We are creating a new section on our fabulous website called ‘Artists Corner’. This is another totally unique section, that no other website has. Artist’s Corner will consist of three key areas.

The first area is where we will talk to mobile photography artists about their experiences with submitting images to Galleries. What the process is, how to select the ‘right’ images, costs involved, time, copyright, how to ensure correct color management when printing, how to literally send images safely and of course a lot more.

The second area, is where we talk to the Galleries themselves and ask them directly what they are looking for from mobile photography, what they can offer the mobile photographer, time scales, the costs to exhibit, print and mount and much more.

The third area will be a ‘live’ area where we ‘follow’ particular artists on their endeavors with creating their images for exhibiting, to contacting the Galleries, to exhibiting, or not as the case may be. Effectively the highs and lows as they experience them.

We really think this is going to be another hugely valuable area to our artists and the Galleries too and will be an area that will grow and grow.

We’d love to know your thoughts. Shortly we will be publishing our first article for this section from the Photographic Works and Arts Eye Gallery based in Arizona, don’t miss that…

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.

    The whole work you are doing is amazing! I learn so much every day and get inspired. I will probably never submit to a gallery but it will be an interesting read to see how the pros do it.

      Thank you Gerry, that’s the general idea and I’m really pleased you’re liking it. We want to be a complete resource to the mobile photographer.

    What a fabulous idea! I am desperate to learn more about printing my images, and barely know where to begin. I have not had the time to travel and take a seminar or class to learn the ins ans outs of printing. It’s definitely on my “To Do” list.
