A big thanks and shout-out to Flipboard for including my Flipboard 2.0 magazine “Cool Photography Stuff” on their Inside Flipboard blog last week in a post about Flipboard magazines for photography.
If you’re not familiar with Flipboard, it’s a killer App for the iPad and Android tablets that transforms your Twitter, Facebook, G+ and other social media feeds into a beautifully laid-out magazine, and it changes your social media experience to a much richer, more visual experience (perfect for photographers and designers).
Two years ago, Apple named Flipboard their “App of the Year” (yes, it’s that good), but this year Flipboard took things up a notch by allowing anyone to create and curate their own custom Flipboard magazine, using content shared on the Web and social media, so I launched my own (they’re free to create, and free to subscribe to. In fact, even the Flipboard 2.0 App is free. It’s all free, free, free!). :)
I was really tickled to see this, cause I really enjoy curating my little daily magazine (see above). Each day I “flip” any cool stuff I see on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and a dozen other sources around the Web into this free daily Flipboard mag, including news, tutorials, beautiful images, and interesting articles. So, if you want to know what’s happening out there in photography every day, it’s kind of a one-stop-shop.
Above: Here’s the link to my mag (it shows it’s by skelby — that’s me). The cover story photo is by one of the hottest up-and-coming sports portrait photographers out there today, Matt Hernandez. I’m a big fan Matt’s work. You can choose a new cover (from things you’ve flipped) each day if you like (and I usually do).
Here’s the link to Flipboard’s blog post (with a number of great Flipboard magazines listed as well), and if you click on the cover of mine, it takes you to my “Cool photography stuff” mag: http://bit.ly/13jeFIS — Thanks again Flipboard for the shoutout, and for making such a cool App. Also, thanks to the 6,000+ photographers who have already subscribed for free and get my magazine in their Flipboard daily feed.
P.S. Hey, don’t forget, on Thursday we have our free “Photoshop World-a-thon Sneek Peek” where me and the “Photoshop Guys” are sharing some of our favorite tips from the upcoming conference in September in Vegas. Everyone’s invited this Thursday at 7:00 pm. RSVP at this link (it’s free, and of course, we’ll have lots of cool giveaways and loads of tips). You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll kiss an hour goodbye! LOL! See you then!
