March 14: C J Burton, top advertising photographer!

Today’s advertising images are made by very high-end (and very highly-paid) professionals, who create a crafted narrative, with camera-captured and post-processing-manipulated elements, on the way to unique, cinematic, clean and striking images! 

Come meet CJ Burton, a top advertising photographer in LA, who pulls inspiration from the world of film to incorporate constructed environments in an engaging, visual-story-telling image! Rare among photographers, CJ can sketch his ideas and present them to the client for approval – then plan the execution, with a large team, capturing as much as possible in camera, before moving to the computer, to complete and finesse the envisioned image. By keeping control of the entire process, CJ can make images that most effectively illustrate the advertiser’s concept – something that’s recognized (and rewarded) by the ad agencies! His work has been featured for years in national editorial, advertising, and TV and theatrical marketing. A graduate of the Art Center College in Pasadena, he has been working in illustrative photography since 2001. Do visit his website – you will recognize some of the ads, and be amazed! CJ will present a variety of images and walk us through the process of their creation and production, before giving us an example of how he retouches an image in post! Don’t miss this very rare peak in how true high-end pros work!!!

We have a new location, the Community Room in the 8000 Sunset Mall! Parking is in the underground garage, and free validation is available in the Trader’s Joe or Starbuck’s!

Join us at 6:30PM for social time, and at 7PM for the presentation, with a longer time window, to allow unlimited questions and more socializing!
