Joanne Carter – TheAppWhisperer Speaks at The Photography Show 2015 – Seminar 2

Yesterday I published details of my first talk at The Photography Show 2015, if you missed that (and it was in two parts, please go here and here).  Today, I am publishing details of the Second Talk on Day 1.  In Talk 2 I wanted to inform the audience of some of the main genres of mobile photography and the specific columns on we have, to entice our readers.

During the preparation for the Show I contacted MaryJane Sarvis (who edits our mobile macro column), Bobbi McMurry (who edits our APPart column), Jennifer Bracewell (who edits our portraiture column) and Cara Gallardo Weil with Gina Costa (who edit our StreetsAhead column) if they could create a video explaining more about how their Columns integrate within TheAppWhisperer and to also, most importantly, pick out specific artists work of merit.

All of our columnists created absolutely fabulous videos, doing exactly as I had asked and adding their own unique individuality to each video. I have embedded each video below from Talk 2, before I played each one, I introduced the Columnist and explained a little more about the relevant Column. Each video played out on stage on a flat screen display, the audio was loud and all made a huge impact. Each member of the audience was in awe, the audience grew and grew with more people gathering as we continued within our time schedule.

This is the order the videos were played at The Photography Show 2015…

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.

    Fabulous videos, no wonder people were stunned, I am, and I have seen a lot of the pictures before. And there are one or two people I have somehow missed and will start following. Well done all.

    Interesting blend of information. Hope the show was successful.

    Was there audio on the Portraiture slideshow? There was audio on other presentations but did not seem to be any on that one.

    I was surprised to see one of my images used in the portrait presentation – thanks. Would have been nice to see attribution on images used, though am sure there might not have been time to type artist name on each image for these short slide shows.

    Very well done and inspirational. Thanks all for your love and hard work 🙂
