Dan Marcolina and his wife Denise are co-owners of Philadelphia-based Marcolina Design Inc. Over the last 20 years their passion for design and digital tools has spurred the company to keep reinventing itself. In the process it has become a nationally recognized design leader in print, web, video, and now digital publishing. Having always used digital/photographic imagery as a cornerstone of his design process along with his shooting personal work in many traditional formats, Dan’s images have appeared in venues and publications worldwide.

Dan has always experimented with equipment and processing and has shot in many film formats from 5x7 to toy plastic cameras. His traditional fine art images have been shown in many juried shows. But his very favorite moment came unexpectedly at a juried opening in NY from well-known art and fashion photographer Richard Avedon who said, “I admire Dan Marcolina's work because he makes photos that don’t try to be beautiful.” 

Over the last two years Dan has found a perfect bridge between his digital design side and his traditional photo side — iPhoneography. This new obsession has reinvigorated his love for photography and visual experimentation, inspiring him to author the critically acclaimed book iPhone Obsessed and four iTunes eBooks:iObsessed Companion,AppAlchemy Essentials,AppAlchemy Pocket, andMobile Masters. This photography series has been called the best, most creative resource for discovering the art of iPhoneography.  

Dan is the organizer of the landmark iPhoneography event, Mobile Masters Sessions, held January, 2013, in San Francisco. He has given lectures on iPhoneography at the first 1197 in San Francisco, The LA Mobile Arts Festival, Olympus InVision Photo Festival, PDN Photo Plus NY, The University of the Arts (Philadelphia, lecture and gallery show), Apple stores in New York and San Francisco, Adobe Max in LA, Adobe Corporate and Photoshop World in Las Vegas. His interviews can be found inGraphis, Zoom Magazine, Cult of Mac, The App Whisperer, We Are Juxt, Pixels, and AMPt. He is also a contributing author to the #1 iPhoneography website, The App Whisperer. With all his pioneering efforts in this Mobile Movement Dan has become widely know as one of the key Mobile Movers.
