The Advanced iPhoneography Group is a series of five 3-hour workshops led by Richard Gray @rugfoot on advanced photography with the iphone. The aims of the group are to inspire members to new photographic creations, to provide instruction on advanced techniques, to analyse and discuss concepts and issues in iphoneography and to form an off-line community of forward-looking mobile photographers in London. Members should have at least 1 year of experience shooting or around 1,000 published mobile photos and be familiar with the classic mobile photography apps. We aim to take members out of their comfort zones and inspire them to tackle new subjects and to experiment with new techniques. The workshops will be structured around the presentation and discussion of advanced techniques and issues and will involve challenging weekly assignments. Member numbers will be limited to 15 per series of workshops. The venue is in a great place for some creative shooting: near the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly Circus, some grand old buildings, Green Park nearby and the Church itself is a beautiful subject (we will be in a fully-equipped meeting room).

Venue: St James Church, 197 Piccadilly, London. Nearest tube is Piccadilly Circus.

Series 1: Monday evenings, 6:30-9:30, April 8, 15, 22, 29 and May 7 (Tues) SOLD OUT
Series 2: Monday evenings 6:30-9:30, May 13, 20, 28 (Tues), June 4 (Tues) and 10

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.
