I’m Super Excited! Why? I’m Officially on the Speaker’s Roster for Social Media Camp 2011, in Victoria. Yay!
Stay tuned for more information and details on this blog as we get closer to the event and also keep checking the #SMCV11 website as they continue to update their speaker’s list.
40 Speakers! It’s going to be awesome, and it was such a wildly popular in 2010, they’ve expanded it to a 2-day event this year. A Wise Move.
I also attended and was a Speaker at Social Media Camp 2010 so I can highly recommend this event. It was FUN, super organized, and brought together some of the brightest minds and coolest technology in Social Media.
And … I think that what I loved the most, was taking online communications, offline, and finally meeting people face-to-face in person.
So what’s my topic for Social Media Camp 2011? Something super-FUN and hands-on:
My topic? “I’ve got an iPhone, now what?
Photography Apps and Social Media for Sharing Images.”
There is just so much nowadays that you can do with an iPhone, which has changed the photography industry for both personal photo sharing and for professional use. * Stay tuned on the Social Media Camp website and this blog for the full blurb of what you will learn if you attend my presentation.*
The sharing of images has become immediate, and the beauty of an iPhone, is that now everything can be done “in-camera” or “in-phone” meaning that Photoshop or iPhoto or any other post-processing image software is no longer needed. (Sorry Adobe and Apple, I still Love You on my laptop and desktop for my DSLR).
What you get as a result, is spontaneous, in-the-moment-on-location opportunities that don’t happen as often with a “regular” camera. It’s not better or worse, it’s just different … and it’s a medium that I am highly passionate about.
In choosing to use an iPhone for Art and Photography, it means that I always have a camera with me. And as Chase Jarvis says, “the best camera is the one you have with you.”
Hope to see you at Social Media Camp 2011 Victoria!
