The Redwood Coast Photographer Feb 2012

My trip to SF for MacWorld / iWorld.

I attended “The Creators”, about how Apple technology has been vital in the development of the modern-day artistic process. Today’s artists are producing work faster, with finer detail, and with more independence than ever before. We’ve chosen a select group of notable artists to discuss how Apple technology provides new platforms to effectively reach their audience.
