Creating For Your Soul. A Portrait Journey By Davide China

This presentation is about INSPIRATION.  It is about creating images that make you happy: images that are unique to you. Images that evoke, tell a story, or make a statement.

All artists learn rules, study the masters who pushed the boundaries, and those who broke the rules. All art, whether you are an artist, a musician, a filmmaker, or photographer, is about inspiration, creativity, and innovation.

I will share several of my key influencers’ photographs, discuss their unique photographic point of view, and the images that they inspired me to create.

Join me on this journey! I hope to inspire you to discover your journey.

Davide China

Davide China’s love affair with photography began when he picked up his first camera.  Over forty-five years ago, first as an amateur explorer devouring all things photography — he studied the work of the great masters, followed the contemporary pros that experimented and challenged the norms. He immersed himself in the imagery created in fashion, music and film. This mix of learning: education, mentors, plenty of trial and error inspired him, challenged him, and released his creativity.

Davide’s career from a weekend warrior wedding photographer to a freelancer to a studio owner earned him recognition among his peers and awards in professional competitions. Davide takes pride in knowing the awards were mostly for the images created for his portrait and wedding clients. Throughout his career his body of work, in addition to portraiture and weddings, includes: product, still life, commercial, fine art, street, fashion, conceptual, and illustrative photography.

Today, as a semi-retired pro, Davide continues to create storyworthy images. Mostly he works on his personal projects, takes select client work, and photographs his grandkids — a lot!  Davide’s storytelling journey continues: learning, experimenting, and pushing the boundaries of the norms.
