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.

    When somebody , *hint SONY,hint*, creates a 2.5 k sensor in a lens, game over. Take this 2.5 k lens, or even better yet, a 2.5k sensor with interchangeable lenses, driven by iOS or some version of andriod, then game really over. DSLRs for the most part are strictly for high end shoots. Thom Hogan on his site has a lot to say about this.
    Oh, the lens would be driven by bluetooth, and the sensor driven by the paintbox built into the iOS/ Android app. Separate the tasks in to best use technology.

    I have a nikon 3200, i see no need to go up. 120fps for iPhone right now, maybe two years it is 240fps? How about when Apple puts an 8 or a 12 megapixel sensor in its phone or iPad?

    Disruptive forces are at play here. In tow years, an iPad mini with 256 gigs of space, with one of these sensor based lenses, it will be a game changer.

    I just hope by then we will have a absolutely disruptive force in audio acquisition / playback, too.

    Really, the next disruption is sound.

    Be well

    One more thought on this.

    SONY is feeling the pressure from GoPro. The GoPro folks are kicking it in the drone/ multi cam and even with the radiant designs NOVO cam.

    What would stop GoPro from actually creating this sensor lens interface of iOS. At this point, nothing. They have the resources, the disruptive DNA in their product.

    Figure they buy out the OLLO Clip folks, add their sensor design to the OLLO Clip and bam! You are now in a whole different realm of digital motion acquisition. OUCH!

    Heck if i was Apple i would buy GoPro and OLLO Clip, and keep them as a subsidiary. Own the Space. Truly own the Space.

    Be well,
