As visual creatives, we all have a unique passion, a DRIVE- something deep down that fuels our desire for creating imagery.  In our second installment of PhotoConLite, we will dive beneath the surface of inspiring imagery, to illuminate the passion behind three different visual creatives.  Each will speak to the force that keeps them pushing the limits of their craft, fueling the unique work they show the world.  Rather than focusing on technique and production, we will explore the reasons why these creators produce the images for their portfolio or for their clients.  Photographers, art directors, and creatives alike will walk away with a new found appreciation and understanding as to the burning passion that DRIVES thought provoking work.  It will spark special insight into the creative process and open new doors to the creation of imagery through the visual medium.   As before, we invite you to bring others who may gain from the connection and perspective this event provides the community.  We are open to new members of the group, and are eager to expand the circle! This event is FREE, but you must secure a ticket so we can know how many people to expect!   Special thanks to Evan Kafka, who is opening his studio to host this event (and who provided the image here).  We will send out detailed directions to Evan's studio in the RAMP Studios building closer to the date.
