We are so excited to announce our latest podcast has just been published to our Apple podcast channel. This time we speak with highly talented artist Rebecca Bruyn from Cape Cod in the United States. In this interview, Bruyn speaks with me about her mobile art, her teaching classes and the Cortile Gallery gallery that represents her.
A few days ago I received the following email in my inbox and it filled me with much joy. I asked the artist if I may share it with you all because it’s good, positive news and hopefully will add further motivation to our much loved cause.
The email was from Rebecca Bruyn a mobile artist of much talent. This is what she said:
I just wanted to share with you how much I appreciate your vision, and your commitment, your joy in sharing your educational resources and supporting our continued exploration of this unusual medium.
You’ve inspired me so much so that I am now teaching intro classes to small local groups in a variety of settings on Cape Cod.
This particular setting is in Chatham overlooking the ocean, a gorgeous place to hopefully inspire new artists!
I make share the students know about TheAppWhisperer before they leave. And share that great 9 minute video you presented at the 2015 Photography conference in England that garnered tremendous interest.
I feel very blessed.
We’re delighted to reveal that the Mobile Photography Awards (MPA) 2017 Results have now been announced. As always we (I speak as a member of the Jury) were succumbed by the wealth of talent displayed across our screens. We’ve had more entries to this competition than ever before and the quality of submissions has been totally outstanding across all the categories. Personally, it was an honour for me to be asked to be a key member of this jury for the 7th consecutive year by founder of the Mobile Photography Awards, Daniel Berman and also to serve with James Bacchi, Anette Schutz, Giles Clarke, Evgeny Tchebotarev, Brendan O Se, Susannah Perlman, Jen Pollack Bianco, Sheldon Serkin, Andy Butler and Alon Goldsmith.

I am delighted to publish The Photography Show 2015 Flickr Group Showcase that I presented this week on stage at show – 24 March 2015. The impact it made on the audience is one I will always remember, they were totally mesmerised by your art and the accompanying music. The duration of this showcase is 9 minutes, during the time it played, the larger the audience became with more and more people beating a path to see what we were displaying and then staying, transfixed.
Thank you all who contributed to this specially set up group for the show. Many of these images were created new for the presentation and have not been shown elsewhere. It was incredibly unique content, demonstrating the staggering talent within the mobile photography and art community.
