Our wonderful contributor Richard Gray, is curating an exhibition of iPhoneography work by the students on the first three courses that he held at Kensington & Chelsea College. We are so pleased to be able to offer some support to these stunning photographs from the UK’s first ever iPhoneography course as they are being showcased to the public for the first time in an exhibition.
The five-week course,’iPhoneography: An Introduction to Photography with the iPhone’ taught students a range of skills and techniques to capture and create beautiful and edgy images using just their iPhone camera and a selection of apps. Students were also introduced to the vibrant mobile photography communities where they could share their work with like minded enthusiasts.
A hundred of the best images from the course are now set to make their debut in the forthcoming exhibition ‘Apped to the Max’, running from November 5-11 at the college’s Chelsea Centre Gallery in Hortensia Road, SW10 0QS. The gallery is open to the public from 9am-7pm Monday to Thursday and 9am-4pm on Friday.
Exhibition guests will also have the opportunity to purchase some of the unique images, and meet the talented iPhoneographers during a Private View being held on Tuesday 6th November, from 6pm.

Richard Gray, course tutor and exhibition curator, said:
“iPhoneography has moved on from being simple point-and-shoot photography to both a sophisticated art form and an engaging hobby for millions. The iPhone camera has unleashed amazing creativity in the students and we are very proud to present their work in a traditional photography format.
“Many people are unaware of the creative potential of iPhoneography and we hope this exhibition goes some way to changing that perception. We would like to thank our exclusive sponsors, The Print Space, for their generous support for the exhibition."
Since the iPhoneography course was launched interest in it has been overwhelming. So far more than 40 students have successfully completed the course and tutor Richard Gray has been working with leading businesses to deliver iPhoneography masterclasses and workshops.

iPhoneography student Shirley Hunter said:
“I always had an interest in photography but I didn’t realise how much more room I had to grow. I look at my pictures now and I’m amazed at what I’ve achieved in five weeks.
“There is so much more to this course than it being fun. It really is a great introduction into photography that teaches just as much about editing as it does about photography. I’d love to take my new found skills further with a more advanced course.”
