Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @coeiphoneart – Gerry Coe from Belfast, UK – Days 1 & 2


We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @coeiphoneart – Gerry Coe. Coe is an Internationally acclaimed Portrait Photographer, working in Northern Ireland known for both his Award winning Portraiture and his Fine Art images.

He is a Fellow of each of the four main photographic organisations including the British Institute of Professional Photographers, Master Photographers Association, Royal Photographic Society and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and he has just recently received his Second Fellowship from the BIPP for his much acclaimed iPhone Photography images. This is the first time anyone, anywhere has achieved a Fellowship in iPhone or Mobile Photography. He is the first Double Fellow of the BIPP in Ireland and one of a very small group of double Fellows worldwide. Recently he was also awarded an honourary fellowship from the BIPP, this is a rare award only 20 of these have been awarded in the 140 year history of the BIPP.

On day 1 @coeiphoneart highlighted the work of @norlink1 – Kurt Norlin and he writes “Hi everyone, Gerry @coeiphoneart here, I would like to thank Joanne for asking me to do this ( I think ) so many wonderful people have gone before me and it was a pleasure to see all your selections. Today I have chosen this image by @norlink1 I love the atmosphere and the sense of depth in the image. I also in this case like the minimalist use of filters, just a simple light texture applied. It has strong compositional elements and great visual appeal”.

On day 2 @coeiphoneart highlighted the work of @bonobostonecreations and he writes@coeiphoneart Day 2, this image is by @bonobostonecreations I have been a big fan of Bonobos work for years, always inventive and pushing boundaries. This image appeals to me for its simplicity. The direct gaze of the girl and the eyes intensified hold your attention to the face, then the addition of muted watercolour washes add that painterly touch. Always a pleasure to see his work”.

Please take a look at our @TheAppWhisperer Instagram account to follow all the goings on and please also tag your images with #TheAppWhisperer, so that they can be found and potentially featured.
