It’s time to GET SOCIAL.

To Social Media Camp, that is.

I’m super excited to be speaking at Social Media Camp 2012 in Victoria, B.C., once again!

I’m honored to say that this is my third year in a row as a speaker at this prestigious Social Media Conference in Canada. For the past two years, I’ve been both a featured speaker and also a session speaker, and for 2012 I’ll be presenting a Power Session, which for my session, will be my version of a hybrid between a speaking engagement and an interactive session where you can ask me lots of questions.

I will not be holding back any secrets as to exactly which apps I use, as well as any tips, tricks and techniques. That’s right, not holding any cards close to my chest. Why? Better images make for a more beautiful web, and in my opinion, increase your marketing power online. During my overflowing-with-content, action packed 45 minute session, you can ask me ‘almost’ anything to do with iPhone photography. (usually I hold a few cards close to my chest … but not this time … 🙂

What’s the biggest question that I get asked on a regular basis about iPhone Photography? (iPhoneography) “What app did you use? Which app is that?” I’ll answer those questions, AND explain why we need to find new questions to ask mobile photographers 🙂

Last year at Social Media Camp 2011, my session title was “I’ve got an iPhone, now what? Photography Apps and Social Media for Sharing Images” and it was standing room only!

Apparently for this year, there is limited space in the room for my Power Session, so please do arrive early because I’m eager to have FUN, share my passion with you for this exciting medium of mobile photography, and to share tips, tricks and techniques to inspire and encourage you to take even more great photos.

Photography and art make for a more beautiful web. Nowadays, cell phone cameras and iPhones are ‘one of’ the fastest way to create art and post to web, blogs and social networks.

SHOW. Like. Trust. Images sell.

iPhone Art and Photography for Social Media Marketing

Everything online is sold and marketed using text content and/or images.

iPhone and cell phone photography is growing at a rapid pace, not only as an artistic tool for creative expression, but as a viable tool to be used for business and marketing online via Social Media and image sharing.

  1. My creative tool of choice, and camera of choice for mobile photography is the iPhone (3G and 4s)
  2. I have 80+ art and photography apps. I’ll share my favorites.
  3. AND >> My session is open to ALL Mobile Phone Photographers. Although my session and demonstrations are based on using an iPhone, you Don’t have to have an iPhone to join in! If you are interested in creating cool images, please join me 🙂
  4. Top secret : Some people have even attended my session without even owning a cell phone. Shhhh. It’s all inclusive, everybody is welcome, it will be FUN.
  5. My presentation is loaded with iPhoneography examples from beginning to end, a visual display, with NO boring PowerPoint 🙂
  6. Get inspired, motivated and passionate about this exciting medium, to use it in your business (or for personal expression)
  7. As I also work as an ARTIST, I’m here to show you some techniques, that you can then apply to your own industry and images.

Here’s what you will learn:

  1. Brenda’s top 10 apps for improving iPhone images
  2. How you can use Brenda’s top 10 basic elements of fine art and design tips to improve your photos
  3. How to correct (or use for artistic effect) blurry and lifeless, “blah” photos
  4. How to use your mobile phone to create art-based marketing on the fly, real time, and where to share your images online
  5. How to create eye-catching cell phone photos that are even more creative, dramatic and that ‘pop’

So … GET SOCIAL.

Here’s a few examples 🙂

 

I'm Speaking at WordCamp Victoria 2012Hi there, thanks for popping by. Brenda Johima here, and I’ve got a teeny-tiny 10 minute speaking engagement ( plus a Q&A afterwards with Janis La Couvée ) to speak on a topic near and dear to my heart … copyright and moral rights, as it relates to photography, art and images online for bloggers, and in this case, for those who are using the WordPress platform for publishing content online.

The target market for my session is basic beginners, and although my time is brief, I know that 10 minutes can make as big a difference as 5 minutes or 60 minutes … it’s simply that one must to choose less words, but more purposefully, and put them together in an organized fashion.

This session is geared to the basics for beginners and bloggers (as it is a legal issue and we are not lawyers) however we welcome participants from all levels from intermediate to advanced to join us for the Question and Answer Period. We value and want you to share your input and ideas. This is a legal issue, and with constantly changing laws in so many different countries … we simply aim to at least increase awareness on this topic so that more and more, we see people giving credit where credit is due, and to the original content creators online.

Janis Couvée and I are sharing the stage for this one session. I will contribute my content as it relates to photos, images and art online. Janis will speak right before me on disclosures, attribution and also copyright, and afterwards we will have a Question and Answer Period, in order to stimulate some great discussion and conversation on this complex and ever-changing topic.

Janis La Couvée is a financial services professional with a keen interest in community building and the arts.  She is a member of the Social Media Club Victoria leadership team, and was the lead organizer for Twestival Victoria. Her blog is an extension of her Twitter, social media and community experience. Janis is passionate about bridging online and offline communities to effect positive social change. Find out more about Janis’s topic at WordCamp on disclosures, attribution and copyright as it relates to content sharing online.

Janis writes on her website, a description of her session on attribution, copyright and disclosures : 

“In the ever evolving realm of social media and the internet, content is created and shared. Now that we’re blogging, how do we credit the original creator? Do we have the right to use the image or written copy? Does our audience really need to know if we are paid to write a post, or received free tickets to an event? We’ll examine some of the best practices and standards for disclosing, consider the importance of attribution, and discuss the sometimes thorny issue of copyright. Giving credit where credit is due, while remaining transparent – is it possible?”

See you there See you at WordCamp Victoria 2012 … this Saturday the 14th of January, 2012.

I Spoke At Social Media Camp 2010 #smcv10

On February 22, 2011, in BLOG, Social Media Camp, by brendajohima

I wrote about my 2010 Social Media Camp speaking engagement on my personal blog at brendajohima.com so you can read all about it there, rather than me posting a duplicate here 🙂

Being selected as a speaker for Social Media Camp  in #yyj (the hashtag for Victoria for those of you who are not on Twitter yet) was the fuel that inspired my passion for Social Media communications and marketing even more, and has been a big part of what you see here today, my brand new website, which now (finally) includes Social Media services.
