    Hi, have read the following article and a few vids on You Tube for installing iPhoto on iPad 1 via the iPhone Configuration Utility.
    How To: Install iPhoto On Your First-Generation iPad -- AppAdvice

    Unfortunately, I have countered some issues. Any idea how I can get this to work? Do I need to create a configuration profile first?

    Trial 1
    This is pretty much an attempt to follow the guide.

    Step 1 Install the app to the utility
    Clicking the Add button loads up a window for me to choose the folder in which the iPhoto is downloaded to, but it doesn't allow me to select the actual iPhoto app.

    To overcome this, I dragged and dropped the iPhoto app into the Applications section. After a minute or so of processing, I can see it appearing and is associated with a device (as shown in "Track installation of iPhoto").

    Step 2 Install the app from the utility to iPad
    After connecting the iPad, I'm supposed to be able to find the added iPhoto app, in the Device -> Applications area with which I can click on the button "Install". However, I am only able to see a list of installed apps and not the new iPhoto app.

    Trial 2
    Since the above doesn't work, I tried to do it again the following way.

    Step 1 Install the app to the utility

    Click on Device name, Add, and select the iPhoto app as circled in the screen shot below.

    After this, the same result appears as before.

    Step 2 Install the app from the utility to iPad
    Same result as Trial 1, I'm unable to find the iPhoto app here.

    The article you linked to dates from March of this year, months before iOS 6 was released.
    The current version of iPhoto requires at least iOS 6. Since the iPad 1 can only be upgraded to iOS 5.1.1, you won't be able to download it unless you have an older version stored in iTunes on your computer.
    More importantly, iPhoto was never intended by Apple to run on the iPad 1.

    Wow thanks! No wonder it didn't work! So there are two options:
    1) Jail break the iPad 1 to install iOS 6.
    2) Get the older iPhoto which requires iOS 5.1.1.

    Option 2 is not preferable as that means I can't get the updates for iPhoto. Any issue you see with upgrading the iPad to iOS 6? I understand the Facetime / Camera / Siri features won't work. Do you know if there's an un-thethered version available yet for iOS 6?

    The iPad 1 can't be upgraded to iOS 6. The most recent iOS version available for the iPad 1 is iOS 5.1.1.

    Sorry not even by jail breaking it? If not, any idea how I can get an older version of iPhoto?

    Unless you purchased it before it was updated to require iOS 6, and it's in iTunes on your computer, you can't get the earlier version.
