Welcome To AMPt Community!
Thank you for taking an interest in the AMPt Community. There has never been a more exciting time than right now in the world of photography. With the rise of smartphones, MOBILE photography is at the forefront of redefining our possibilities to create and share engaging and artistic images. Mobile photography is changing the way we look at the world and has reignited the creativity of thousands of people. An entire community of mobile photographers/artists have emerged on multiple photo sharing social networks. There was a time when “followers”, “likes” or “generic comments” ruled how we engaged each other. AMPt believes the stage has been set for mobile photographers to want REAL engagement and the opportunity to make a positive impact on this growing art-form. "Mobile photography is BIGGER than any one individual or popular social network. It is a MOVEMENT, and we are at the cutting edge my friends! I don't want us to just create mobile images - I want us to DEFINE the entire genre of mobile photography. With your help, the AMPt Community will do just that - DEFINE mobile photography." - Frank Mathews, founder of AMPtCommunity
AMPt Community’s goal is to become the premier resource for mobile photography/artistry... period. We are totally revamping the way to engage the mobile community, but we need your help. The BIGGEST thing you can do right now is post photos/videos, take part in discussions, start forums, share tips, post blogs and start making new friends. AMPt Community has started building a schedule of initiatives that take place regularly.
Current AMPt Community Schedule:
