Successfully Connecting with Creatives
Establishing a Clear Channel for Collaboration

Wednesday, July 13, 2016          7:00 to 9:00 PM       Social hour at 6:00

Leftspace: 2055 Bryant Street, San Francisco

Join APA for an engaging panel discussion designed to benefit both Creatives, and Photographers: this special new event is all about making the initial connection, and the entire collaborative process more efficient for everyone.
We will be providing an opportunity for top Creatives to be able to directly explain what they are looking for, the best ways to approach them, what exactly they expect these days from Photographers, and in doing so, reduce the amount of the wasted time, resources, and effort, on both sides.
