Bob Weil leads something of a double life—marketing professional by day and covert iPhoneography creative and evangelist by night. Currently, he directs the creative development of websites, video, and online marketing initiatives for high-end real estate clients. Taking and editing pictures with his iPhone consumes most of his free time.
Bob has written a number of feature articles, tutorials, and product reviews for computer graphics, animation, web design, and health information technology magazines, and produced special effects for Virtuosity, a Paramount film. He also co-authored an Internet programming and marketing book called Drag ‘n’ Drop CGI: Enhance Your Web Site Without Programming. In the mid-1990s, he co-founded an Internet marketing services firm, and later went to work for Disney Studios, developing and overseeing all film, music, DVD, and book websites.
Twelve of Bob’s images were invited to the Los Angeles Mobile Arts Festival 2012, the largest exhibition of iPhone art in the world to date. Also in 2012, Bob’s work was exhibited at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in California and the Darkroom Gallery in Vermont. Four of his images won awards at the 2013 Mobile Photo Awards and were displayed at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art in New York City. Bob was also a featured artist in Dan Marcolina’s eBook MobileMasters.
Bob currently co-manages iPhoneographyCentral.com with Nicki Fitz-Gerald and speaks on iPhoneography topics. His online gallery can be seen on iPhoneArt.com at:iphoneart.com/users/4431/galleries. Bob describes his approach to narrative vs. documentary iPhoneography in a video on the Mobile Photo Awards site: the-mpas.com/conceptual-photography-with-bob-weil.
