    7:00 amApple Store, N. Michigan Ave.

    In this Apple Store talk Dave will discuss his creative process: from concept to creation.

    Dave will elaborate on taking ideas and concepts from his mind (or a creative’s) and walking through the process of bringing it to life in a photograph. Character development, choosing a narrative or point of view, and then deciding the best approach for execution will be presented through examples of both commercial/editorial and personal work.

    He will discuss the process of determining whether an image should be created on location, on a set in the studio, or through a composited combination of both. And, express the importance of personal work as a tool to work through these processes so they are at the ready when a client calls.
