(foreword by Joanne Carter)


“Everything evolves, there are no eternal realities: just as there are no absolute truths.”

(Nietzsche, 1878)

As in a Rorschach test, in choosing the images for this presentation, I had the distinct impression of showing more than the photographs I so much admire, much of my essence and the content that inhabits me.

In irrational art there is a valuation in relation to the unconscious that is portrayed through the dream, where the ideas that arise to the mind do not have an order or organisation, being visible in the surrealist works the variety of present elements and a certain confusion that bind the observer to the photograph.

Man-Ray makes the distinction in his photographic work between two contradictory worlds, between the real and the inexplicable. He affirmed that the resolution of the future would be found through two states, reality and dream”

Instagram TAKEOVER with Ocean Morisset @oceanstide – Days 4 – 7 – As He Leaves Us…


For the past week Ocean Morisset – @oceanstide has been publishing three of his images each day to our Instagram feed and it’s been winsome.

I personally asked mobile street photographer, Morisset to take over our Instagram account for seven days because he’s distinguished himself through sheer range. Morisset’s photography is never staged and I would venture, each image is captured in an instant. Perfectly balanced compositions are undoubtedly Morisset’s greatest strength and perhaps what I find most remarkable is the ability, he has, to establish immediate connections with his subjects, no matter how transient the encounter. Morisset’s street photography is as far away from clinical cold street photography as it is to fine art portraiture. There’s a sensitivity here, compassion for his subjects and deep trust in his own instincts. He gifts the viewer the freedom to imagine and interpret the development of his suggested stories.

Huge thanks to Ocean Morisset what a week it has been, thank you!

Today, we will announce a new Instagram TakeOver, again with a very talented mobile photographer, stand by for that!

To view the others, please head over to our Instagram account @theappwhisperer.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew ‘Using iPhone’s Portrait Mode’


I’m excited to share another How I Did It!™ video tutorial created for TheAppWhisperer! The feedback from our wonderful mobile phone community has been great! If you have a particular topic you’d like me to cover in a future video, please share your suggestions! And thank you Joanne Carter for creating this space for sharing and learning, and for inviting me to be a part of it.

Today’s video tutorial features the Portrait Mode in the iPhone’s native camera app. The Portrait Mode works in combination with the dual lenses on the iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, and iPhone X, to allow us to create a narrow depth of field that was previously only possible with traditional cameras. A narrow depth of field is a great way to draw the viewer’s eye to our subject, whether the subject is a face, a flower, or other element that we want to isolate and feature.

In this tutorial I demonstrate the use of the Portrait Mode and show how, with the 8 Plus and the X model iPhones, lighting can be selected both when shooting as well as after the shot has been taken.

Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more to come! Until next time, keep on shooting!

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 5 August 2018


Photographer, Mary McCartney (Paul’s daughter), with whom I used to work at a London photo agency said, I’m embarrassed to say that my main camera is my iPhone”. That’s not to say she doesn’t use 35 mm film, a Leica in fact, or a DSLR, even a Polaroid, but what she loves about her iPhone is ‘how immediate it is‘. Contrasing with Grayson Perry, artist confession, ‘the cameraphone has made the forest of glowing screens ubiquitous in museums, galleries and at events. Maybe I’m a snob, but it’s put me off photography’. We take thousands and thousands of pictures, every single day, do we treasure them? Some we do, each represents the power of time, mortality and memory, in essence, the power of photography. It’s very nature, evokes like no other art form, the split second, already spent…

Enjoy this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase, a few minutes [for you], of time very well spent.
