Jack Davis is nothing if he is not trying something new his art. And his art is his photography, and his brushes are his cameras.
In this presentation Jack will share his experimentations with his "Bat Utility Belt" of camera gear - from Infrared to waterproof, from iPhone pictures to motion blur drive-bys. And Jack will share not only What he is currently exploring in his photography, but also the Why - the Why "Playing" with your art is so important to keeping the passion alive.
