iPhone Photography Speaking Engagement at Social Media Conference

i-am-speaking-at-social-media-camp-2013-1

i am speaking at social media camp 2013I am speaking at Social Media Camp 2013, May 6-8, in Victoria, B.C. This will be my fourth year in a row as a featured speaker.

I LOVE this conference and the quality of education and speakers, as well as the great friends I have made, who are with me still. I offer a BIG Thank You to the brains and talent behind instigating this conference, Paul Holmes and Chris Burdge. Thank you both for believing in me, and for giving me this opportunity to share what I LOVE to do, one more time.

What am I speaking on? My favorite topic! iPhone photography and iPhoneography of course, relate to the Apple iPhone camera. Cell phone photography, smart phone photography, and mobile photography are related, and sometimes the terms are used interchangeably, but it really boils down to the same thing. You are using a mobile device (your individual choice for a technology brand) to create photo-art on the fly, while making an impact and communicating a message and/or story.

Personally, I create photo-art on the fly using an iPhone. I’ve chosen to make my photographs with an iPhone camera since 2008, and can’t believe that it’s now been almost 5 years!

5 years with an iPhone lovingly glued to my hand. It’s not only me who loves the iPhone as a camera. Many claim that the iPhone is the most popular camera, and even Apple proudly claims that “Every day, more photos are taken with the iPhone than any other camera.”

Having said that, whether or not you own an iPhone, does not matter in my session. Please show up with ANY cell phone camera … or none. I have had people attend my sessions with no cell phone camera. Whether you have an iPod, iPad, Blackberry, SONY, Nokia, or other Android device does not matter, and you will find out why … when you hear me speak. (p.s. It’s not about the gear, and to show you how open minded I am about gear, please do not tell Apple, but I have a secret love affair in the makings with a Sony XPeria Z/ZL)

Here is the official conference session blurb, and I do hope to see you at this stellar social media conference, right in the heart of beautiful Victoria, B.C., Canada.

Session Title: Mobile Photography: Everlasting Ever-Changing

Session Extract: Mobile Photography : WOW Yourself! Turn Blah cell phone photos into WOW images with impact. Your OWN mobile photography and visual social media can transform lives, make business more fun, and make a lasting impact through social sharing.

The only one thing you can really count on is your own inherent creativity. With mobile technology changing at rapid speeds, those who embrace change and their own creativity will lead the way. Cell phone cameras have put creativity in our pockets, always accessible. Mobile photography is a brilliant creative tool for marketing, advertising, real time news and for personal artistic expression. The images we make are permanent memories online and in print. What are you communicating?

“Creativity is not only for arts and culture. Creativity, innovation, imagination, the ability to invent and to think creatively is crucial for business, science and technology, health, education, construction, for the development of new products and services, for employment and job creation and, for every day life. Creating the business, life and career we dream of and long for, requires imagination and creative thinking, combined with the courage to take the action required to get there and to reach our goals.” — Brenda Johima

Think about it, everything we purchase, has been touched by a creative, in order to market it, whether it be a photographer, visual artist, designer, writer, dancer, actor, videographer or singer. The arts are crucial not only to life, but to every business. Add now to this list, iPhoneography and mobile photography, it’s crucial.

You will take away:

  • Inspiration via a fast moving, never boring presentation
  • Brenda’s top 10 recommended apps (iPhone and Android) for creating mobile photo-art on the fly
  • Tips on how you can use mobile photography to your advantage
  • Brenda’s top 5 list of crucial elements of fine art and design
  • Stunning examples of iPhone photos turned into works of art
  • Brenda’s camera of choice is the iPhone but the session is applicable to all mobile photographers, no matter the camera (* you do not have to own a cell phone camera to attend this session *)
