Take a look at the interview and let me know what you think. Here’s a link to the page, I am pushing mobile photography and art into the mainstream market, I hope you support what I’m doing here.

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.

    so much is new and changing hard to pin down anything but one trend, women opening up a creative aspect of their lives with mobile photography. 5 years from now a revisit to this article would be in order.

    Didn’t know that one of the jurors for the mobile photo awards is exhibiting at the Harwood in Taos. Have to get to that show ASAP!

    As for me being only iPad creative with my baby nikon and a go pro, It has opened up a blockage, letting flow back into my art life. Apps addicted because of App Whisperer, I look forward to the day where I can show a complete acquisition to finished on a iPhone/touch. I do find that aspect a though a bit like dogma 95, but if rules say mobile phone only, well, there is freedom in restriction.

    I am looking forward to see more painter inspired work then photo filter work in the coming years.

    be well
