So…jut before christmas Apple got in touch to ask if I’d be interested in doing a presentation for their customers at the flagship scottish store in Glasgow. I don’t think they even realised I was from Glasgow when they asked me. Anyway, I met with the man in charge of events and we had a good chat. I felt confident that they were interested in promoting the art of iPhoneography, so I said OK.
Last thursday, the 7th of April, was the evening of the event. The store had been re-organised and luckily the new area they set aside for the presentation had space to add more seats then previously…as it got busy. There were mac users, iphone and non iphone owners, amateur DSLR owning photographers, graphic designers…a mixed bunch. My presentation lasted about 70-80 minutes and I covered how I started taking photo’s 5yrs and then quickly got on to how my creative approach to photography really developed when I started solely using my iPhone. The presentation covered the different styles of iPhoneography, the global network of iphoneography and the social aspect of it all. Some of my favourite artists from around the world, Maia Panos, Aik Beng Chia, Robert Herold, Jon Betts and Greg Schmigel, all loaned me images to use in the talk. It seemed to go down a storm. Already had email feedback from folk who really enjoyed it and had several folk come up after to say how inspirational it was seeing all the work and hearing about the creative process.
Hopefully there will be more to come. In meantime here is a shot for the day. Taken for the presentation on morning of 7th April on drive up M6 from north of England to Glasgow.
